IVCA 25 Mile TT Championship. Moy Valley, 24/06/18.
Although a beautiful clear and calm morning, which I thought would prove to be a fast one, it transpired to be harder going than many of us expected.
Non the less there were great rides in abundance with Hugh Davis leading the pack with an emphatic win with a superb plus 12:16 on age standard, 1:09 ahead of Ian Cassidy in Silver medal position and 2:02 ahead of Pat Byrne in bronze medal position.
Three riders managed to beat handicap with Karl Gallagher taking the win from Tony O’Malley and Peter Raftery.
Fastest of the 25 starters was Ian Cassidy setting a new age 44 record in the process of 54:43. Second fastest was Jonathon Grimes with a fine first ride with us of 56:27 . Third fastest was David Carroll on 56;45 from whom Ian took the age 44 record, commiserations Dave
Many thanks as ever to the timekeepers and marshals and a special mention to the Mother Hubbards’ staff for the great plates of pancakes at the after race breakfast.
Next TT event is next Saturdays ( 30th June ) first use of what we expect to be a super 10 TT course at Athy. HQ is at Clannard Court Hotel from 0830 for a start time of 0930.
Hope to see a good turnout,
