Midland league final race Mount Temple

Well done to all our wheelers in the last round of the midland league (stage 14) in terrible wet conditions in Mount Temple. Only the hard few turned up! In the A/B race Paul Crowley came 4th, Steven Franzoni 5th in the breakaway of 6 with Colm lynch winning the bunch gallop to grab 7th. In the C/D race we had 4th for Tosh Kiernan, 7th for Aidan Daly and 8th for Graham Morgan. Final standing and a report on the Team Time Trial will follow in next week’s notes.

With the racing season drawing to a close, races are very few and far between but we still had a number of Wheelers representing us on Sunday last August 18th.

Black Rose GP Galway

On Sunday last we had three Wheelers, Eoghan Kevlihan, Matt Burke, both A4, and John Murray A1, competing in the Black Rose GP. It was a very challenging course with a testing 2.5km hill included in the 17km lap. In the A4 event 14 riders were left in end chasing the eventual winner from Bohermeen. Matt got up 6th and Eoghan 8th in the chasing gallop which proved to be a tough 75km race. John Murray again put in a good performance to finish in the bunch of his 105km race. Well done to the lads!
