Midland League Round 12 in Legan
On Thursday 31st July Longford CC hosted round 12 of the Midland League in Legan. A undulating 13km circuit to be completed 3 times awaited all the riders. First race off on the evening was the A/B category. The B's containing 9 riders got a 2.5 min advantage on the chasing A group of 10 riders.  The A's got to work quickly and caught the B's after a lap and a half. There were a few attempted breakaways with Wheeler Stuart Cox managing to get clear on lap 3 and stayed away to take the win. There were two additional breakaways on Lap 3 with Eoin Lynch 3rd and Damien Shaw 4th. In the bunch sprint I managed to get 10th. 

Next race off on the evening was the CD category with 21 riders signed on across all categories. The D group got a 1 min advantage on the chasing C group with the C+ group a further 3 mins behind. The C's were caught on lap 2 with the D group staying clear until the final lap. In the bunch sprint Michelle O'Halloran was 8th and Andy Vambeck 10th. Well done all. 

The Next Midland League report will be on Round 13 which is on Thursday 7th August in Clara starting at 7pm. A minimum of a club competition Licence is required at sign on.
