Earlier today, Lakeside Wheelers were represented at the National Junior Track Championships in Dublin by Nicole Gorry and John Boyne. Both were scheduled to compete in four events, the Sprint, the Scratch, the Kilo/500 and the Pursuit and it was John’s first year to compete on the track.

With several weeks of training behind them overseen by Steve Franzoni, these two up and coming cyclists were well primed for their races. Amazingly, at the end of the day’s proceedings Nicole Gorry surpassed everybody’s expectations by winning all four events that she participated in. 

And, as if winning wasn’t enough, Nicole even created a new national record for the 500 meter Sprint. Well done Nicole on a fantastic days cycling and no doubt your graph will continue to rise. John rode very well in his events and with more experience on the track there is no doubt that he will progress further in the sport.
