After the cancellation of last week’s season opener, there was a great turnout of 31 riders for tonight’s circuit time trial on the Comber-Ballygowan course. Fastest was regular visitor Paul Crossan (Killinchy) who just dipped under 12 minutes with a superfast 11:57. First Ards man was ever green William Gill, who takes an early lead in the circuit time trial trophy. He’ll need to watch his back though, with new comer Barry Mitchell just 9 seconds back, and Richard Hanna also showing well tonight.
It was great to see Club Run Leader and club stalwart Desi McIlwrath down tonight. Hopefully he’ll be back on the bike soon.
And finally, the timekeepers have asked me to remind all riders that they must use a working rear light in all club time trials.
