Richard Nicholl has successfully defended the Weir Cup he won in 2023 by taking victory in the handicapped 10m TT event this evening, Thur 26th June, on the popular Rathfriland Rd course.

Richard took a whopping 4 minutes and 2 sec’s off his target time by posting an actual time of 29:57.  The evergreen Ruth McKee took 2nd place on handicap with an actual time of 29:05, bettering her target time by 2:22.  In third place was Cameron McIntyre who impresses with his comeback of continual improvement.  He clocked an actual time of 23:06, some 2 minutes and 8 sec faster than his target time.

Fastest rider on the night was Paul Antoine Hagan with an impressive 22:18 for the less than flat 10 miles.

Hosted as part of the Banbridge Inter-Club Race League, next weeks club competition will be the inaugural David Lavery Memorial.  A road race event held on one of David’s favourite courses, the Annaclone GP circuit.  We hope to see a great turnout from club members to support the first race for this memorial.
