Peter Rimmer in the A1/A2 race and myself in the A4 race represented the club today on a tough course in Laragh in Wicklow. Peter raced hard but on the lumpy course it suited that Mullingars machine Damien Shaw, Damien and a team mate from Aqua blue with another UCD rider blew the race apart with a 3 man break. They left everybody else trailing with Damien finishing an excellent third.

The A4 race split in pieces as well on the climbs with a 2 man break away staying away and I finished in the peloton in a very diminished bunch. Apart from next Saturdays Vet's and Women's national championships in Multyfarnham that's the racing season over. A very successful season for the club with a lot of riders being upgraded, races won and a lot of experience gained. The preparation for next year has already started.
