Ryan Sheridan, Andrew McDumphy and Thomas Kilmurray represented the club in the junior races on Saturday.  All lads did extremely well on what was a tough 25km rolling course finishing in top 10. A great outing for first race of the year. Well done lads keep up the good work. Charlie Sheridan took part in the main event of the day, The Monie and Pat Nolan Memorial, which was a handicapped race. Charlie did very well and finished comfortably in the main bunch.

Sunday April 15th
Sundays race was probably the toughest of all the races over the weekend, with all races having to climb over the very though Naul hill. Lakeside wheelers were represented in all four senior races of the day. In the A4 race Matt Burke, Billy Cunnane, Ken Berry and Charlie Sheridan all did very well finishing in bunch with Mark Monaghan coming in behind few minutes behind. Billy Cunnane was very active throughout the race, managing to get a lead of 25 seconds on the bunch a one point but got reeled back in, who knows what would have happened had he had a couple of riders with him! In the A3 Race we were represented by Robbie Kenny. 

Robbie did extremely well racing for only the second time this year and was very active early on and managed to bridge across to the main break of the day, which stayed away till only 2km to go, but Robbie wasn’t to be out done in the sprint and managed to take a very creditable 10th place. 

The A1/A2 race was the first race of the day in which we had two riders John Murray and Peter Rimmer.  This was an extremely hard race with the pace up from the very start of the race and the riders having to climb ‘The Naul’ a total of seven times. Both of the lads were active from the beginning trying to go on the attack and also covering breaks. John Murray managed to get into the break of the day with all the favourites. This break worked well together and stayed together till the last lap. John kept fighting till the end and took a very creditable 9th place against some of the very best riders around. Peter was also worked very hard all day in the group behind helping to shred the field in the last lap and taking 4th A2. 

Well done to all who took part on what was very though course!
