Slaney CC A4/Novice League begins on Wens April 20th  - by Admin

April 17, 2016

Davidstown-map-500

Racing on the (in)famous Davidstown circuit returns on Wens April 20th for five weeks.

Same format as last year which worked well – so the order of groups on the road for the two races will be;

Race 1             5 laps                   1st Group – Vets over 50 with an A4 or Club licence

2nd Group – All A4 licences

Race 2           3 laps                    Novice/tourers – all club licence holders, touring, novice riders starting together.

As always the format will be reviewed as we go on depending on results, numbers riding and rider feedback and will be tweaked if necessary.

All the clubs have lots on new members who have never raced before and novices will not get a better place to start racing and the more taking part the more benefit everyone will get. You won’t get a safer circuit to start your racing career!

List of assigned marshalls for April 20th

to follow

 

What do I need to do to take part?

Firstly you MUST have a 2016 Cycling Ireland LIMITED COMPETITION Licence or an A4 racing licence. If you have an introductory or leisure licence you must upgrade to a Club competition licence. You just pay the difference between the licence you paid for and the club licence fee.   Link : http://www.cyclingireland.ie/page/membership/types-of-membership

Secondly you MUST register with Cycling Wexford and select 2 nights to marshal at a Wexford event. This costs €15 but includes free entry to the CountyChampionships.  Link :  http://www.leaguerace.me/

Finally you need to do so soon or your name won’t appear on the start sheet. If you are not on the Wexford Cycling registration list you will NOT be allowed race.  This will be strictly enforced as its unfair to all the riders who have signed on for marshalling duties.

(Exception being riders from outside the county, MarbleCity for example, who may attend the odd race but don’t need to register)

Sign on will be from 6.15pm and first race will need to start at 7pm sharp to ensure we have enough light. Bring a €5 sign on – (no cheques, credit cards or €50 notes please!)

Racing Sunday April 10th  - by Admin

April 11, 2016

Due to the awful weather forecast for Munster today the whole SCC crew travelled to Stamullen and it proved a wise decision as although cold the weather remained dry and the racing in Fermoy was cancelled.

 

20160410

We had two in the A4, Tonto and John R, and unfortunately the lads had a day to forget, that can happen to us all, so forget and roll on the next race.

Mixed fortunes for Fionn, Ryan and Reece in the a3/jun race which was run on a tough circuit around Stamullen and the Naul, I definitely say that Meath is not as flat as you might think! Fionn easily got over the climb with the best but then the air in the back wheel deserted him and race over. Reece was comfortable all day and went to the line with the best and finished just one place outside the prizes. Ryan showed great determination to make it back to the leaders, having been dropped the final time up the climb, and took a fine 9th place in the sprint for yet another top 10.

Back to that part of the country again next week for a Drogheda Wheelers run race on Sunday.
Thanks to Bernie and Amy for the support today.

  • 8.30 – 10.00 Draft AGM agenda attached. SCC 2015 Agenda_AGM

Club AGM  - by Admin

October 28, 2015

We intended having our club AGM before the end of October but have decided to put it back a few weeks. It will now take place on the week ending the 13th or 20th November depending on room availability at the Riverside. We’ll confirm the date shortly.

As always we encourage members to attend the AGM and participate in building on and improving the clubs activities. New blood and fresh ideas always welcome and by sharing the workload it makes life easier for everyone. If anyone has any pre AGM ideas they would like to discuss or have any queries about putting themselves forward for committee why not give chairman Paddy Dunne or secretary Mick Howe a shout or talk to any of the current committee members.
