Following hot on the heels of our own Crit two weeks ago, the annual Stephen Roche Criterium was staged by Orwell Wheelers in Dundrum last Wednesday night.

The Lakeside Wheelers Youths squad fared extremely well with Aaron Wade continuing his fine run of form coming home 4th in the U16 race whilst fellow Wheeler, Caoimhe O’Brien finished 1st Unplaced girl in the same race. Not to be outdone by her big sister, Aoife O’Brien rode an excellent race in the U14’s and finished very strongly in 5th position overall.

These are fantastic results for the junior riders considering some of them have just completed their school and state exams so well done to all who participated and represented Mullingar so well.
