17/07/2020 - ECC ITT Round 3
Once again over 50 riders from over 20 clubs tested their mettle on the hilly Tydavnet course.
The weather has fortunately been very cooperative so far. Thursday evenings conditions were warm and dry, though the riders did have to contend with an unexpected cross headwind again on the outward-uphill leg of the course. Despite this challenge, many riders posted personal bests. Further evidence of repeat competitors learning the secrets of the rolling parcours.
There are only 3 rounds remaining and the feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive, so we are keen to see everyone out competing. Please let your clubs and friends know that the remaining events can still be entered individually for a small fee on Eventbrite. The entry link will follow this post. In addition to the attached results, you will find a selection of photos from the wonderful Sharon McFarland. Over 100 images of round 3 are available on Sharon’s Facebook page: https://tinyurl.com/ECCITTR3
Thanks once again to the entrants, but especially to marshals and the Tydavnet community, without whom these events could not be hosted. The challenge of social distancing in the current Covid-19 situation has presented the event with extra hurdles, but attendees have been respecting the guidelines and we have still managed to achieve a safe and enjoyable race day atmosphere. See you next week for round 4.
