Greg Swinand wins North Tipp Wheelers 25 mile TT


Masters TT world champion Greg Swinand has won the North Tipp Wheelers Open 25 mile TT.

The Viner-Caremark-Pactimo man clocked a time of 51:45. And that was 51 seconds faster than runner-up Paul Kennedy.

The silver medal winner has shown good form against the clock of late, taking elite bronze at the national championships in Sligo in June.

But he could not stop Swinand today, who powered to victory in his world champion’s kit.

Rounding out the podium was Eoin Woods for the promoting club, in a time of 54:37.

Tom Shanahan of Limerick CC took the A2 prize in a time of 56:29. Conor Coleman of Panduit Carrick Wheelers was the best in the A3-Junior race.

Teenager Coleman showed his form in recent weeks with victory in the De Ronde Classic.

Michael O’Connor of North Tipp Wheelers was best A4 with 59:39. And Jennifer Bates (Gerard-DHL) was best woman in a time of 1:02:18.


Coleman (top) was best junior while Shanahan was quickest A2.
