Conditions were pleasant for the final 10k straight in time trial on the Portaferry Road this evening with a slight tail wind, but most riders were a few seconds back on their times earlier in the season. Fastest was Michael Boyd (AHC Racing), who just failed to break the 30mph barrier with a time of 12:32.
