05/05/2013 McQuigg Cup 50 Mile Time Trial

John Madden of Curran Racing has broken the current 50 mile time trial record by 23 seconds. The record for Veterans was set last year by John Heverin of Clann Eireann with a time of 1:45:42. Madden's new time of 1:45:19 is a new record which needs to be ratifed by the Board of Cycling Ireland.

The recordwas set on the famous A26 Woodgreen course last night in almost perfect conditions. The event was a Ballymena promotion of the McQuigg Cup.Turn Stewards and observers were in place and the on-form Madden had ensured that a commissaire was present. Folllowing the event Madden thanked the Ballymena club for facilitating his record attempt and Aidan Higgins who was commissaire for the evening.

With David McCann now a vet there will be a battle to see who breaks the veteran's records first.

Cycling Ulster would like to congratulate John Madden on his new record.
