Inter Club Time Trial
A big thank you to all those who helped in any way to make Wednesday night's time trial a great success. Well done to Barry McCrory who was the first CVW home in a fantastic time of 25:33.

This is definitely something that we could look at doing on a club basis so let any of the committee know if you would be interested.

Well done also to Barry Magill who made a great impression in the recent interclub race in Omagh.
