“Whoever said they enjoyed the way back after the turn is a fibber” I was told yesterday at the Ernie Magwood TT held at the carriageway from Ballymena to Ballymoney (Frosses Antrim) Nearly 80 testers battling the South-Westerly high winds on a dry course. A league that I try to visit at least once a season to get some educated info of how the season progresses in the world of Time Trialling in the North. The league is promoted by Island Wheelers and a very popular event in the calendar hence the big entry!!

Ex-Graduate of the Belgian Project Craig McAuley (Caldwell Cycles) still has what it takes with winning round 3 after a hard day in the office (Red Hand) the day before
The anticipation
The concentration
The Dublin smile
