The rain held off for this evening’s 10 mile time trial at Millisle, and there was a gentle head wind on the return leg, but a few riders got delayed slightly by the traffic in Ballywalter.
Andrew Hedley (AHC Racing) was fastest with 21:48, taking just over a minute out of Stuart Millar (Ards CC) in second. Barry Mitchell (Ards CC) was a further minute back in third, a remarkable performance given his Audax exploits at the weekend.

The committee decided that the 10 mile time trial in the Inter Club League 10 on 25th April should not count towards the 10 mile handicap cup (because riders were encouraged to ride road bikes rather than time trial bikes). This means there are just two qualifying 10s in this year’s competition – the race on 6th June and tonight’s race. The final standings are shown below, with three riders tying for the win – Ben Healey, Dean Bradley and Stuart Millar.
10 Mile Handicap Cup
Club 10 mile time trials also count towards the McFarlane Trophy (calculated across all club 10 and 25 mile time trials on a scratch basis. The latest standings are shown below, with one event left to run – the Champion of Champions 25 on 13th August.
