Energy Cycles 10 mile MA League TT Result – 29.8.130

A tough evening was in store for those who rode this evenings sporting course (Aberdesach/Llanaelhaearn/Aberdesach). The breezy conditions weren’t going to give fast times, and most of the riders times were slower than when we held the first event on this course, back in June this year. However there are always exceptions, and this evening it was to be Garry Ellis. With a whopping 51 second improvement on his previous ride on this course and only 17 seconds short of the course record, Garry was the worthy winner.

Thanks to all those who rode this evening, particularly those who travelled some distance to compete, I hope to see you all again soon.

Once again I would like thank Caren, Ruth, Llion and new Club member Dafydd for assisting with marshalling...

Energy Cycles 10 mile MA League TT Result – 1.8.130

Well we were in for a suprise. We had no howling wind, pouring rain or midge to try and spoil the evening. It was warm (very!), dry, and sunny. The conditions allowed for fast times. From the records I have, the time that Gareth McGuiness set for this course (Aberdesach/Llanwnda/Aberdesach) is now the new course record. Well done to all those who made the effort to come and do a ride, I hope you’re chuffed with the results.

Once again I would like thank Ruth, Caren and Llion for assisting with marshaling. Without you, we’d not have been able to hold the event. Cheers!!
