The Westport TT League is intended to introduce and develop riders towards competing in Time Trials and Triathlons. The format for the league is as follows: A Spring Series of 4 races and an Autumn Series of 4 races over the same routes.
In the interests of safety, each rider must have a Cycling Ireland or Triathlon Ireland License and be a member of EITHER Westport Covey Wheelers or Westport Triathlon Club. Every rider must sign on and get their start time on each evening.
The Rules of the Road must strictly be adhered to and fair play is considered a must at all events. Start times are allocated at Sign on… so come early – start early.
Sign on from 6.30pm to 6:55pm. Riders off every 30seconds.
Time Trial Times / Scoring
Everyone will score 10 points for attending each night. There will be bonus points for the top 10 for cyclists and top 10 triathletes for each race. All races count.
In the event that there are 2 riders on the same time points the fastest rider will win.
The event will be run on the Leenane road. The 8km will start at Siobhan O’Malley’s mothers house just passed Liscarney Post Office. All other races will start just past the crossroads after the Fire Station on the Leenane Road. This will be the finish line for all events.
