A great turnout by DCC's time trial team at Velo Club Iveagh's 10TT on Plantation Road, Gilford last night with 40 cyclist taking part.

Some old faces, some new. Of particular note was the first TT ever of young Jamie Gregg who posted an amazing sub-30 minute time of 29:22. He made it look effortless, riding over the finish line like he was out for an evening bimble in the park. A few tips from the older (ahem!) guys will get him into competitive shape for the TTs ahead this summer.

As is often the case, the only lady taking part was our own Andrea, posting a Personal Best time on new wheels supplied by Stephen Smith of JR Magill Cycles.

Peter has vowed to "live like a monk" in order to beat Ian's time in the TTs ahead. Let's just see... ;-)

  • I Walker 25'29

DCC would like to thank the organisers, timekeepers, marshals and helpers of Velo Club Iveagh for their faultless organisation and support on a very busy road.

It was much appreciated by all present.
