There was another great turn out for the straight in 10km time trial on the Portaferry Road this evening. The forecast was for sunshine and a tailwind, but it was blustery and cold, and Kirk Sloan’s club record of 12:07 always looked safe.
Fastest on the night was visitor David Hamilton (Curran Racing) with 12:45, and Ivan Robinson also dipped under 13 minutes with 12:54.
This event counts towards the club’s 10k handicap cup. Biggest improvement on the night was Gareth Murray, who takes an early lead in this competition.
It was great to see so many members of Aftershock down tonight to encourage the riders and offer refreshments after the race. Their “act of random kindness” for a Christian Easter was much appreciated. Thank you, and come again anytime guys!
Here is the full result. Thanks as always to the timekeepers Ron and Bobby, and the pushers off Desi and John.
