Each year Club members compete in a series of open time trial competitions organised by Holyhead Cycling Club, Clwb Rasio Mona and ourselves. During the 2015 season it was five events, of which four events counted for the overall awards.

In recent years riders from Energy Cycling Club has dominated this series, and once again the racing members within the Club haven’t disappointed. The Club’s riders have won “The Team” title again.
