Cory Jay breaks his own record for the 2014 Mother's Day TT. Most people watching the race where surprised when Jay crossed the finish line and his time was sub 28 minutes due to the horrendous conditions. It was raining with high winds and it was cold, some even saw snow. The conditions were far from ideal and the roads were wet. Jay's time was 27.22.74. He shaved 28 seconds off the old mark of 27.50 that he set in 2011.
The trails at Brookvale are still too wet to ride and we will try to have the opening night of Rigid Riders Tuesday, May 20th if conditions permit. I will post updates here and send out on the e-news.
Day licenses for recreational events will continue to be free but day licenses for races will be going up to $10. Day licenses can olny be used once a year then a CPEI license is required.
