On Sunday 23rd March Stuart Cox and Eoin Lynch traveled to the Des Hanlon Memorial Race which was hosted by Carlow CC. This race is regarded as among one of the toughest one-day events in the country. Stuart represented us in the A1 race which was over 160km.

A breakaway went clear early on in the race with Stuart putting in a good ride to finish in one of the many chasing bunches. Local lad Eoin Lynch, now riding with DID Dunboyne, competed in the A3 race which was over 120km of the challenging circuit.

A lone rider Eddie Dunbar broke clear of the bunch in the first 10km and stayed away for a fantastic win. Eoin managed to finish in the top 20 of the chasing bunch.
