Four Wheelers headed to Donore in Meath for the annual Brendan Campbell Memorial race.

Wendy Mahon took part in the ladies race, which was also the Leinster championships. Wendy rode a great race in tough conditions over seven laps of the circuit to take second and the silver medal back to Mullingar.

In the A4 race over 8 laps Derek Sheeran, Joe Kenny and Graham Morgan represented the club. The race was steady for the first 4 laps and exploded at the end of the 5th lap with Derek able to make it into a break of eight riders. Joe and Graham worked hard to slow down the chasing group which worked out perfectly as Derek was able to secure 3rd place in a sprint finish between the break away.
