Orla Hendron (Leinster - Usher Insulations) was, like Ireland's Kate Rudd, wearing the skinsuit of Orwell Wheelers in the time trial. She usually rides with this club but got a call-up to the provincial squad for the TQ Paper International 2 day. Like Hendron, Leinster's Roisin Kennedy wore her club skinsuit. In this case, that means the colours of the Usher IRC team. Karen Lovatt (Team Luciano) was off soon after Kennedy. As her name suggests, she is the wife of GB international Mark Lovatt. Diane Moss is the strongwoman of the Team Luciano squad, placing fourth on the opening road stage and fifth in this test.

 

Don't be deceived by the relaxed style. Kate Cullen (Team Letchworth Extran) was a good fourteenth in the 2 kilometre race against the clock.

Nina Davis (Team Letchworth Extran) is the current Welsh champion and was fourth quickest. With a name like Julie O Hagan, this CC Luton rider must have Irish roots. Angela Hunter (GS Strada) was warming up for well over an hour before her time trial. The race leader was taking no chances in her bid to win the race. Hunter was relaxed before the test Angela Hunter roars away from the starter to set a winning time which was a full ten and a half seconds quicker than that recorded by Cycling Ulster's Cheryl Fisher
