Phew… Thank god that’s over!! The past weekend will live long in the memory of all the members of Lakeside Wheelers for the sheer size of the task that the club undertook. In total we ran fourteen different races over the three days (Friday, Saturday & Sunday). Without the help of our excellent membership none of this would have happened & to a person, every one of ye should be extremely proud of yourselves. I for one appreciated the excellent job that was done by all and to be totally honest I’m glad I was racing! Speaking with other racers from different clubs, they were extremely impressed with the level of marshaling on the course, the excellent sandwiches, buns, cakes tea, and coffee after all the races and also how smoothly the whole event passed right from sign on and all the information that was available to hand thanks to the super crew that were based in our racing HQ of the excellent facilities of Mullingar Rugby Club. 

A big thank you must also go to the Civil Defence and Gardaí for all their support and also to Eddie Tyrell and Grange Motors for the use of their cars for the entire weekend, but without doubt the two hardest working men of the weekend were Shay O’Toole and the one and only Joe Duffy. Finally I would like to say Thanks a million again to each and every person who helped out over the weekend no matter how big or small you thought the job you did was without the sacrifices you made to be there the whole event would not have run so smoothly!

A Message from Club Chairman Dermot Hogan.
“As LSW Chairman may I express on behalf of the club my admiration and appreciation to all those members who contributed to the successful running of the National Criterium Champs & LSW 2 day stage race. We gave a superb account of our club and we should all be justifiably proud of a job well done. Thank you all, Dermot Hogan.”
