Sat TT_05. Rathcoffey 23 km.
Well, we had a fine bright morning. May have been a small field but we had the Big Guns firing alright. Just seven seconds between Neil and Ian. Hard luck to Pat Byrne and Eve McCrystal both of whom had mechanicals. I think this is the first time I’ve seen a result which had the same placings for Age Standard and Actual Time for all finishers. No handicap result, this being the first time we’ve ridden this course so we’ll use todays result as handicaps for the next one here. Everyone seemed to like the course, it’s no drag strip but a sporting challenge and I think worth keeping on the program. The shift of the start certainly made for a much improved start / finish from a safety perspective.
A 14 day break from TT ing now, the next one being at the Beehive course wicklow on the 18th. Hoping for a calm day this time!!
