Brian McCrystal broke the course record in the latest round of TVR’s TT Series in Warrenpoint.

Starting in Warrenpoint and heading on the carriageway towards Newry and turning at the roundabout at Greenbank back to Warrenpoint, the course is a test of physical, mental and emotional endurance.

And it’s an exam that Brian passed with flying colours. He went round in a new record of just 19 minutes 17 seconds.

Xeno Young from Powerhouse Sports took the win for the junior category with a time of 19 minutes 55 seconds.

This event is open to any rider who holds a valid license and the club ask that you have a working rear light. The course is well marshalled by dedicated TVR club members and the PSNI have a presence. St John’s Ambulance are on site and refreshments are available from Hills Mixtape.

The dates for the next rounds are as follows: Round Four Wednesday 6th July, Round Five Wednesday 10th August (night of Champions) and finally Wednesday 31st August is the final round; a 2up event.

Prize money of over £2,400 is up for grabs coming from the club and sponsors Chain Reaction and Power House Sports.
