Last night was the final night 0f the Club-Rothaíochta Na-Sionainna TT series which has run for the past 15 weeks. The final night was done as a 2Man TT with riders working in pairs to try and set a new PB.
It has been an excellent series, with a total of 150 people taking part. Thankfully we never had to take that many times in the one night!!! A big than you to everyone who marshalled throughout the series. Without you the series would never run. Hopefully Club-Rothaíochta Na-Sionainna can continue to grow with the support of all its members and produce an equally fantastic TT series next year. But first is the small issue of the Hill Climb series in August. [..]
After months of hard work for his leaving cert, Irish International Junior triathlete Rory Sexton from the Blackwater Tri Club in fermoy scorched to a great season opening performance in the middle of July winning the Carrick-On-Suir sprint distance triathlon.
Rory lead out of the water with a strong swim, but the downstream current didn’t allow him open up the advantage he would normally get on the swim. This meant he got caught on the bike and had to have a quick T2 to get out on the run course and catch the leader. Rory showed his class, with the Leaving Cert having no effect on his run performance and produced a blistering run to reel in the leader and cross the line 1st with a comfortable margin of victory.
Rory is showing a great return to form after completing his Leaving cert this year and will compete in the Kinsale Sprint Triathlon this weekend, which forms part of the Junior National Series.
Rory is aiming towards Junior cup races in London and Spain later in the year and looks as though he will time his comeback perfectly to peak for these races. GoTri would like to thank his sponsors TrinRun and his family who have been supporting Rory and his quest for Gold!!!!
You can follow Rory throughout the year on his Blog
Best of luck to all the team racing this weekend

The TT series is slowly drawing to a c lose for 2012!! This was the penultimate week, but the final week of the individual TT. Most categories look almost decided but there are still a few podium places up for grabs that can be won by finding the right team mate for next week’s 2man TTT.
The rules for next week are simple, but before we go into that results from last night are available;
Week 14 results: TTResults_Week_14
Full league table: TTResults_2012_Week_14
The 2man TTT rules;
- Each pair will be let off at 10sec intervals as per usual.
- It is the time of the 2nd rider across the line that counts.
- If both team members are in the same category they will score equal points e.g 20 with the next team scoring 18.
- If both members are in different categories their points will be decided based on each individual category.
- If a rider is not comfortable racing with another person then you can do the TT as an individual scoring points based on position in your category.
If you do not have a partner for the TT next and want one, put a message up on our facebook site and hopefully you can find another person who has a time similar to yours!
