Last weekend saw the staging of the National B road racing championships in Co. Waterford. Lakeside Wheelers were well represented and even tipped for glory by the pundits during the week. Irish Cycling columnist and renowned cycling journalist Tommy Campbell was taking recent form into account when, in his weekly report he backed Stephen Franzoni to win the individual event with Lakeside Wheelers to also take the team prize.
Unfortunately his prediction was not correct but to have a writer of his stature keeping an eye on our team is a fabulous honour. On the day, Steve came home in a very creditable 4th place with John Murray in 9th. These performances are yet another sign that the Lakeside crew are making huge strides in Irish cycling circles. Well done to all who competed and best of luck next weekend in the Leinster championships.
