Irvine Breaks Red Hand Course Record

Martyn Irvine of Giant Kenda romped home a clear winner in today's tough 70 mile Blair International Red Hand Trophy in Broughshane. Irvine completed the course in a time of 2.31.50 and in doing so beat the 15 year old record for this race of 2.35.52 set by Tommy Evans in 1996.
