The club will be running a 32.5km TT on Saturday September 14th as the Hammond Memorial event this year.

As befitting a trophy which was originally awarded for a 50 mile time trial, this year the Hammond Memorial is taking shape as a rolly TT around the hills of Wicklow. This will be the route: (also below).

Sign-on is in Roundwood GAA club (the usual place), from 08.30-09.15, with first rider off at 09.30.

The prize list will be finalised closer to the date, but there will be prizes for each category. We are also working with CI to have the top finishers awarded grading points, but this is still in progress.

We are aware of the clash with Rás na mBan, and the Vet track champs, but due to the crowded late-season calendar, this is the only workable date. We hope to see as many riders out there as possible!

Update: The TT will be split into A1/A2, A3, A4, Ladies and Juniors. As well as the Noel Hammond memorial trophy for the winner of the A1/A2 race, and the Kieran Hammond memorial trophy for the winner of the A3 race, prizes will be awarded as follows:

  • 1st six overall
  • 1st six unplaced A2s
  • 1st six A3s
  • 1st six A4s
  • 1st three Juniors
  • 1st Lady (only one prize as we expect a small turnout due to the Rás)

Unfortunately we will be able to award any grading points. The 2013 Technical Regulations state that TTs are only worth points within stage races, and there are no exceptions allowed.
