Well done to the clubs who pulled together one or more teams for this inaugural event, the feedback has been very positive its a great event for team building and learning how to ride fast as a group.
Well done to Castlebar CC for organising the marshal etc.
Last round of the Mayo league 2013 will be held in Tourmakeady on July 30th its a 5k hill climb. The overall top 6 can still change around so participation is vital.
Results and report Team TT, Mayo league overall update and below:
Mayo League Team Time Trial over 25kms.
Western Lakes CC savoured a great win against what looked like unbeatable opposition in Castlebar, beating the usually strong Westport Covies and Castlebar squads by 25 and 75seconds respectively. The 5 man western lakes squad had no room for error as they started with the bare minimum of 5 of which 7 riders are the max per team.
The Team TT is a new discipline to the Mayo cycling league and it proved very popular with 8 teams pulling themselves together to do battle.
Little did they know that the biggest battle would be amongst themselves as Team Time Trialing is one of the most technical difficult discipline in road cycling which takes months of practice and team uniformity to master, when practiced right it looks fast, simple and easy but without good team communication it can turn a well drilled machine into a very shabby splutter outfit.
The Last round of the Mayo cycling League for 2013 will be held in Tourmakeady up Lally’s mountain on Tuesday July 30th where each rider has to battle up the 5k climb at an average of 8%.
