The Midland League (MIL) commenced in late April and next Thursday it is the turn of

Lakeside Wheelers to host a round of this very popular summer series of races. The MiL is a

race league organised locally and open to riders from clubs in Westmeath, Laois, Longford

and Offaly. It is a very competitive series and has been the gateway to open racing for many

midlands based riders over the last 10 years.

Lakeside Wheelers is responsible for organising two rounds this year and next Thursday all

roads lead to Dalystown where the first of these two races starts. As usual marshals are the

vital cog in the wheel of bike racing so, if any members are available to assist please contact

race director Steve Franzoni.

Last week the MiL was staged in Fivealley near Birr and but for a small lapse in

concentration, young Tommy Hogan would have finished 2nd in the A/B race. Tommy is

progressing very well and there is no doubt that he will have his day very soon.
