The rain is back but so is the circuit races including the first round of the North Down CC “Kirkistown league” as part of 4 events sponsored by “Gentlemen of the Peloton” and amalgamated with the “Ulster Youth Crit Series” for their first round of 8 events from now till end June.

Thank you “Gentlemen of the Peloton” for the donation towards the Belgian Project
Hope we added some atmosphere to the event with our tunes and commentary

Duane McCreadie from Gentlemen of the Peloton reported>>
Main race results will be updated tomorrow to include more of the places. I am just awaiting some further photos to clarify some race numbers etc.
It was a horrendous night, but 83 brave riders made it to the start line, including 53 kids.
A big thank you to all marshals/volunteers who made a great effort to lend a hand in the rain and support the race.
Our first Kirkistown leaders jersey will be worn by James Ambrose from Bike House CC men’s and Rachel White in the female jersey for round 2 of the league.
The team prize is currently being led by Kinning Cycles.
Due to commentating and the rain, I couldn’t take a winning photo of James Ambrose (Bikehouse Bangor) so picked one from our Flickr archives …

Here below some pictures of the event..due to rain, not perfect ones, and I am afraid none of the senior races due to protect the camera

The Famous flags soaked but the spirit present at Kirkistown last night
