We'll be posting, results, race reports and overall classifications for each of the six stages of the 2016 summer league here.

Round Two of Summer League

The format of this year’s club race league has been changed to try and encourage more members from all categories to participate. Following on from the first round TT a few weeks ago Round two was held last Sunday. This was a very novel treasure hunt which was blessed with glorious sunshine and perfect cycling conditions. Teams of four were picked from all the usual groups and a bit like the lottery, they had to pick numbers from a bag which corresponded to a destination to which they had to cycle. 

On arrival at the chosen landmarks the team had to take a “selfie” and then return to the clubhouse and pick two more numbers. The team which managed to get to the most landmarks in the allotted time was declared the winner.

Well done to Mark Horohoe, Jack Nugent, Carmel Buckley and Seamus Moran. This proved to be a huge success and was great craic for those involved. 

Thanks to Eoghan Kevlihan who organised with Mickey Hynes and Joe Duffy helping out on the day.

(By Graham Morgan)   
The Lakeside Wheelers summer race league kicked off on Friday evening 29th April. The first event up was a Time Trial on the N52. "The race of truth" attracted twenty three entrants - not bad for a bank holiday weekend. The event was won with a brilliant performance from Alan Connolly who completed the course in a blistering 11.24, followed up by an equally impressive performance by David Boyne on a standard road bike in 11.48 and Steve Franzoni in 12 minutes to complete the podium.

Aisling Flanagan was first lady with a time of 13.46.  As good as these performances were, a new time trial star was born in Roibeard O'Ceallaigh. Roibeard normally known for his ability to climb like Chris Froome now can time trial like him too as he beat Eamon Hogan by 29 seconds and Michael Reynolds by 24 seconds respectively.

Lets hope the Kilkenny run in the hurling championships don't blunt Roibeard's form as it has in previous seasons.
