Lakeside Wheelers Duathlon participants
Once again an intrepid few Wheelers made the transition to the duathlon world on Sunday last. Dave Fagan took the overall event win with a fantastic display on the bike converting a 30 second deficit after the first run into a 2 minute advantage at the end of the bike section.

Michael Walshe was next Wheeler home in 5th followed by Aidan Fox and Aidan Farrell rounding out the top ten in 8th and 10th place. Carmel Dolan also had a strong race and narrowly missed out on a top ten finish in the ladies category coming home in 11th place. Some result considering this is only Carmel's second duathlon.

Well done to all who took part and the several wheelers who also helped out and marshalled at the event. I am sure alot money was raised for this good cause on a gloriously sunny day in the beautiful surroundings of Ballinlough Castle.
