The A4 event on Saturday evening drew a large field of over 50 riders for the 4 lap 74km course on the old N11 between Gorey and Arklow. Probably uniquely this year the course was on smooth wide tarmac with not a pothole in sight! Among the many marshalls on the course were the members of the Rás team. The strong winds meant the riders had a strong tailwind for half the lap and an equally fierce headwind for the rest. This put paid to several attempts to breakaway and at the end of two hours of racing the bunch was still largely intact. A crash in the last few kilometers took down 2 riders, who suffered some nasty road rash, and impeded several others. In the final gallop for the line the Comeragh CC duo of Barry Griffin and Shane O’Donoghue took the silverware back to Waterford while Shaun Gilbride from Swords took third. Slaney was represented by Mick McLean and Paddy Dunne.
