2015 Time Trial series
Weeks 1 & 2 of the TT series
After 2 fantastic weeks of the tt league athletes can now see and compare av speeds/personal best times/athlete categories and much much more
A big thank you to Jennifer for putting the time into preparing the sheets for 2015
We look forward to welcoming you all again this Thursday
The Carbon bikes were back in action tonight but the tri and cycling gods decided to reek havoc on the deep section wheels with wind and rain. Its great to still see 40 riders coming out on a night best suited to hiding beneath the duvet…… but champions are made when the cameras aren’t rolling, behind the scenes and when doors closed the only way to open them is to get out and pedal hard
Young Daragh O Niel was our athlete of the night, arriving late due to training he still took to the course in the rain and finished with a smile.
Well done to all who took part and Thank you as always to Trevor for sponsoring the crate of coke
Week 4 Eddy Merckx Night
WOW what a turn out of riders for our first of two Eddy Merckx nights or for those that dont remember the “cannibal” retro evening. No aero wheels/bars/skins/helmets just you your and what power you can muster in a true test of truth.
In true Merckx style Dermot Radford once again showed his class by powering away with victory. I wonder how this man will be challenged this year….. do we need to put the feelers out to other club testers to see what can be done ? or do we run a last man standing prologue night ….. the ideas are running in the little hamster wheel
It was great to see new GoTri sponsors Zimmer have a big staff attendance tonight. The sports and social team are heading towards competing in Hell of the West Tri and our series is part of their campaign to get ready. We wish them all the best
We believe young Eavan O Gorman has set the new fastest Junior short course record, taking over from Jake Mc Mahon. Its fantastic to see more and more junior rider coming out to try the course. They are all welcome and their is no charge for them taking part
Once again a big thank you to all our marshals on the night, John,Declan, Martina, Jenifer and STl and to all the riders for embracing the no aero rule. Week 8 will be the next Eddy Merckx night along with week 12 our last night before the hill climb series will be a 2 person tt

Week 3 TT Training League 2014
A fantastic turn out of 40 riders greeted the marshals tonight on a predicted quite night due to the Joey Hannon Memorial Tri taking place this weekend, but that didn’t stop the fast times pedaling in.

A tailwind on the way out with a strong headwind on the return leg, was not ideal for quick times. Well done to all who scored new PB’S tonight. Your training is paying off
Our very first tandem team from Tip Wheeler’s led by Pilot Dermot Radford and boy did the partners deliver a great time cracking the course record and setting a great standard in the Tandem section for future pairs to tackle. We must now add a new cat to our League 🙂 it would be great to see more and more pairs come and take part. Spread the word.
We would like to thank all the marshals again tonight. A great turn out and brilliant to have some new time keepers trained in for future nights.
Can we reiterate that once your ride is done please return to the Wells church car park where our Sponsors Trevor Askin of Amber Costcutter has a lovely create of Cola for you to quiche your thirsts
Thank you for your support
yours in sport
Week 2 TT Training League 2014
athletes were out in force again this week with 45 riders taking the test of truth…. just you, your bike pushing the pedals against the clock.
Ciaran Russel son of CRNS rider Cathal is our youngest competitor pedaling piston of fury as he chases his dad along the course. Always great to see our future stars coming into the sport. Terry O Neil is another father who is beginning to struggle to keep pace with his young guns, Darragh, Luke & Ben are improving week on week.
The ladies course record we believe has come under threat tonight with Sheila Clavin going 25 dead. We will confirm this from records tomorrow….. but for now lets believe
The ladies category is going to be hotly contested this year as already we can see amazing times coming in after only two weeks. Due to the rise in Lady attendance we are launching a female rookie category. We will set the Kph cut off point for progression next week and confirm more details. As always make sure to spread the words of encouragement and pedal a friend to the start line. Its a great way of getting into the sport.
A good number of athletes made the Elite Cut off time of 22:30 tonight. Young David Richardson being a standout performer in the last number of seasons in the senor category has finally gotten his goal this time around and at his first attempt.
As always a huge thank you to the GoTri & CRNS crew who came out to marshal and support the TT tonight

Week 1 TT Training League 2014
A fantastic turn out of local and not so local clubs for the training league. As always Thank you to all our marshals on the night, you each receive your 20 marshal points ( the easiest way to earn points :). Fantastic to see our club neighbors Tipp Wheeler’s make the trip from Tipp to try and steel all our silver wear again this season. Dermot Radford came very very close to equaling his course record, along with some flying quick times from all newbies on a calm first nights action.
Its always great to see our Junior members from GoTri & CRNS out taking part in the league, which is free for pedaling future of our club. A big thank you to Terry and Cathal for accompanying them.
Trevor Askin of Amber/Cost Cutter once again brought us out some cold cool refreshments.
Can all athletes please make sure that once they complete the course they return to SIGN ON AREA OF WELLS CHURCH. Tonight there was some traffic congestion at the finish and safety is our first priority.
