McCann Takes Second Victory in a Row

Fresh from his victory in the Ards Crit last night, David McCann of Giant Kenda recorded the fastest time of 20.00 at the Birches to take the win tonight in the Dave Kane Time Trial League. Thomas Martin of Eurocycles was next best at 1 minute one second down on McCann. There was a heavy downpour just before the event started which may have helped as faster times than normal were recorded for the course. TT regulars Mark Greer (Maryland Wheelers), Simon stockton of Team Madigan and Martin Tohill of Spires were all up in the top five places. Colin Wilson of Bikeworks recorded a good time of 25.53 while Clann Eireann Veteran, Harry Martin was pleased with his 23.53.

Only two women lined up tonight, Sheena O'Neill of Island Wheelers and Maryland's Heather Wilson who recorded a 23.29 tying for eigth place with Tony McConville (Apollo CT) and Joby Holman of Phoenix.

16 year old Dan Gordon (West Down Wheelers) put in an excellent time of 23.28. This young lad may be one to watch out for in future.

The event tonight was hosted by Clann Eireann CC who did an excellent job. There were nearly more marshalls that riders and every junction was covered. With heay spray on the roads, the presence of marshalls in high viz jackets certainly added to the safety of the event. For the organisers it was a much appreciated break as we had little to do. Many thanks to all who turned out on what was not an ideal night. The only thing was Mickey Murray's tea and sandwiches which were accidentally left behind!!
