From the 56 competitors on the night, the Tipperary Wheelers had only two representatives, John McCormack and Dermot Radford. Other members of the club chose to sit out this week’s time trials and instead focus on the weekend triathlon taking place on Sunday. John was paired with Paul Dillon from the Cycling Pursuits club and together they put in a time of 30 min 36 sec. Dermot was paired with local Tipperary man Simon Ryan, representing Kanturk Cycling Club, and they put in the second best time on the night of 26 min 17 sec.
Overall that still leaves Dermot holding a slender lead in the Elite category, just one point ahead of Simon and John has moved up to sixth position in the Vet category. Having sat out the time trial this week, Tommy Byrnes has dropped to third position in the Vet category, however with the best 6 from 7 positions counted Tommy can still make up the five points on the current leader.
There will be a break in the time trial league next week and it will resume again on Thursday 19 May. It has been confirmed that Cycling Pursuits will also be hosting the Munster Time Trial Championships on the same course immediately following completion of the current league. Full details of the league can be found on the Cycling Pursuits website at cyclingpursuits.ie
