A flock of spectators…

| Comments Off on A flock of spectators…

The 25 mile Championship TT took place this year on a revised course utilising a circuit normally reserved for chase pursuit races and it was a testing course for the strong men.

On the night honours went to reigning club champion Paul Cullinan who shaded it by 13 seconds from Dave Peelo. The addition of the handicap points makes the league interesting with Dave Peelo now 3 points ahead of Paul Cullinan with Mark Prendergast in third.

It was memorable for many reasons but for some riders it stood out due to a large flock of sheep they encountered on their final lap which cost some minutes. It wasn’t quite a replay of the Bernard Hinault incident in the 1984 Paris-Nice race when he punched the protestors but tempers were a little frayed especially as their nice clean bikes looked somewhat agricultral by the finish line.

Next week we are back to The Beehive for handicap time trial with a 16km route on a circuit sometimes used for the club road race championship.
