TTL_09. IVCA 50 TT Championship.
Very disappointing turnout of both rider and marshal numbers for this championship event, the second last of the Time Trial League. Eleven riders took a battering on yet another windy day. However that did not stop three of our numbers recording age records for the distance. The medals went to Hugh, Gold, with an age 69 record od 2:4:35. Ian, Silver, with an age 42 record of 1:52:56, ( also the fastest ever IVCA 50 time ), and Peter, Bronze, with a super new PB of 2;9:27 which also won him the Handicap prize. Peter will feel his new TT bike has paid for itself already Patsy recorded a new age 82 record of 2:55:20, what a man !
Thanks as ever to the timekeepers, Harry and Kevin. Kevin was signed off by Timing Chief Harry having completed and shown proficiency in his training, well done and welcome to the team Kevin.
Thanks to the five marshals who did turn up and also to Nicky Lynch who came out with Patsy to support. Nice to see Nicky back after some absence.
We move on to our last evening TTL of the season on Tuesday ( 9th ) with the Batterstown / Culmullin circuit time trial. Parking and start finish are at the Green Sheds Roundabout, Batterstown.
Please note that the final Saturday series TT is to be held on the Kilcock / Enfield course, 20th August, not The Beehive, in the hope of facilitating some greater speed 😉
