Maxwell Breaks Irish Jun Woman’s Record, Christie Goes close to Irish Record.

Last Thursday night was round 5 of the Ernie Magwood super 6 TT series.  It was held on what is acknowledged to be the fastest TT courses in the country at Woodgreen between Antrim and Ballymena and the times recorded at the event only strengthen that claim.   The conditions on the night were just right for those who had trained hard all year to go for a PB, or even an Irish record.

The in form Marcus Christie continued his very impressive TTing this summer and produced an 18:32 for a new PB and a time only 11 seconds off David McCann's long standing Irish record.  Cathal Doyle, John Heverin and Thomas Martin all went below the hallowed 20 minute mark claiming second, third and fourth respectively.

Many riders recorded their PB but the highlight of the night must go to Laura Maxwell of Roe Valley who broke the Irish woman's junior record with a fantastic time of 23:00, congratulations Laura.  This record will have to be ratified by Cycling Ireland before it becomes official but we imagine that this will just be a formality.
