Round 6 - Stephen  Smyth Memorial 10 mile time trial

Standings after Round 6

Having already competed over five road racing rounds and one criterium round it was now the time for the time trial specialists to step forward and race over the traditional 10 mile (16km) time trial distance. 

Hotly tipped in the starting line up were Irish squad riders Trudy Brown (Northern Dave Kane) and league leader Mary Boyd (Roe Valley CC) and also recently crowned N Ireland Open Road Race Champion Ann McFarland (Omagh Wheelers).  Also Lisa Rodgers (Northern Dave Kane) is a time trial specialist who always rides very strongly in any time trials. 

On one of the rare occasion when we see warm sunshine in Ireland there was only a slight cross-wind to deal with putting the riders in confident mood before hand that some personal bests were possible, and so it proved. 

Brown and Rodgers performed as expected returning superb times of 24.31 and 24.34 respectively to take 1st and 2nd.  Surprise packages were McFarland and K Hack who took large slices off their personal bests to finish 3rd in 25.28 and 4th in 25.50. 

Despite suffering with a slight injury Mary Boyd still did enough to maintain the series lead going into the last round in early September. 

All the riders would like to thank the promoting club, South Derry Wheelers, who looked after them so well with lots of food and cups of tea while they took time to socialize in the sun after the finish.
