A4/Novice League Race

Many thanks to all who turned up last night to the first race of our league. 19 riders signed on and thanks especially to the Wheelers for supporting the event in such numbers.The racing proved very close with the A4’s having to work hard to claw back to 4 minute  advantage on the limit group over the 5 laps of 7.5km. The A4’s also lost both Rita Boyle and Patsy McCafferty to mechanical problems. With one or two more riders in the limit group the next night they will be hard to catch. The race ended with a clean sweep for Wexford Wheelers with Gianni Ponzi out jumping Simon Lambert and Eoin O’Shea to take victory. Adam Thatcher was strongest in the underage single lap race with Graham Hartnett, Neil Kelly and Fionn Jordan just behind.  Thanks to Pat, Mick, John, Paul, Ann, Roisin, Caroline and Alan for help marshalling and driving. Next event in a fortnight.
