The premier stage race for ladies in Ireland is the international Ras na mBan and this year’s race marked a major step up in competition for Mullingar’s Caoimhe O’Brien. The young Lakeside Wheelers member was selected to ride this top class race with the Leinster team and although she was up against some of the best riders in Europe Caoimhe managed to finish the race and achieve 11th position in the Best Irish Rider category. Competing against riders of this calibre would have been very difficult for Caoimhe but it is a major milestone in her cycling career and one which will stand to her in the future. Well done Caoimhe and enjoy the break now after a busy summer of racing.
