The first club TT of the season took place this evening in freezing temperatures on the Dublin road. There wasn’t many skin suits to be seen as the strong winds and snow meant you had to wrap up warm. All things considered, there was a fine turn out of 19 hardy men and women for the first race and many strong early season performances were put in on this short 6 mile course.
It was great to see 7 new faces on the start line and plenty of old ones too. Shane Scully put in the fastest men’s time while Sinnead Oakes put in the fastest women’s time. Your times for the first TT are never that important. You will find that as you keep doing them your times will drop considerably. The key is to keep turning up to the races and be consistent with your training. Before you know it you will be mixing it with the best!
