We hosted the Leinster Youth Time Trial Championships on Saturday 13th May.  We had 40 competitors and the day was a great success. A dedicated team of about 20/25 Lakeside Wheelers personnel were involved in running the championship. The high numbers involved prevent me from naming each individual. Thanks to all involved which included marshals, start line personnel, finish line personnel, signing on crew, medical support, photography, road maintenance, course signage, vehicle support and general support.
The categories catered for was Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16. Lakeside Wheelers had 10 youths competing and all did their club proud. We had three podium finishers with Aoife O’Brien, Caoimhe O’Brien and Conor T Farrell winning gold, silver and bronze respectively.
Further honours for the club with the selection of Aaron Wade on the Irish Youth Academy Under 16 squad. Aaron departed for the UK with the squad on Saturday evening. They have three days of racing and return next Wednesday. Well done to Aaron and we hope he has a successful and enjoyable trip. Update – Aaron finished 9th in Sunday’s race and races again on Monday evening.
