Ireland’s Fastest Team

The search is on for Ireland's fastest team when Phoenix CC promote the only Team Time Trial in the calendar on Tuesday evening(with the exception of the FBD Insurance Rás).
The 25 mile event at Woodgreen has already attracted a lot of interest with two strong Ballymena squads already entered for the event. Last year only one second separated Total Cycling from East Antrim-Audi.
The teams will consist of a mimimum of 3 riders and maximum of 4 with the third riders time counting as the result. Tuesday night's event will also be useful to riders competing in this year's FBD Insurance Ras as a Team Trial will be an element of the Ras this year.
Entry fee is £5 per rider.
For those of you still unsure about competing in such an event or who have not tried it before I suggest you read Paddy Doran's article on riding a team time trial. Paddy is a well known and highly respected coach and, together with Ciaran Power (Navigators), has compiled some information on team time trials specifically for the teams competing in the Ras this year. There are many useful tips and tactics contained in the article and should be of great benefit to all teams. We would like to thank Paddy for the link to his site.
