17/05/2015 Champion of Champions TT – Portaferry

chaSherry is the Toast of Champion of Champions TT
Martin Sherry’s (Emyvale) long journey paid off when he won today’s Champion of Champion’s 25 mile time trial on the classic Portaferry Road course. On a cold morning, with a rising westerly wind, Chris Boardman’s 49 minute course record was never in danger, but Martin’s time of 55:00 gave him a clear margin over Sean McIntyre (Orchard Wheelers) in second place with 55:48, and local man Paul Crossan (Killinchy CC) in third with 56:37.

There was a good turnout of women, with Eileen Burns (Ballymena RC) fastest in a very impressive time of 59:22. Top Junior was Jody Evans (Spires) with 1:01:32.

Fastest Ards CC rider was new comer Barry Mitchell with 1:00:50 in his first race at this distance. It surely won’t be long before he dips under the hour for the first time.

Thanks to time keepers Dany Blondell and Paul Robinson, to Desi McIlwrath and his team of marshals and to pusher off David McCann.
