On Sunday 16th June we had a team of 4 in Castlecoote Co. Roscommon for the Donamon Dynamos GP. We were represented in A1/A2 by John Murray, in A3 by Billy Cunnane and in A4 by Aidan Daly and Charlie Sheridan. The A1/A2 race was over 7 laps of 16km circuit. A breakaway went clear on lap 2 and stayed away to the finish. John finished in the chasing bunch. The A3 race was contested over 5 laps of the 16km circuit. Billy managed to get into 2 breakaways but both were brought back in by the bunch. The winning breakaway went clear containing 9 riders on lap 3 and managed to stay away to the finish with Billy finishing in the chasing bunch.

From a Lakeside Wheelers perspective, however, all the action was to be in the A4 race. Aidan Daly and Charlie Sheridan lined up for 4 laps of the 16km lap. There were a few attempted breaks but nothing stuck. On the run in to the finish Aidan worked very well to cover any attacks off the front of the bunch. In the bunch sprint Charlie managed to get 3rd and in doing so gained the 6 points he required to get him upgraded to the A3 category. Well done Charlie.

Charlie Sheridan on the podium and now a Category 3 rider.
