Alex Williams and Frank Dunne took part in the Collins/Cristle Memorial in Kilmessan Co. Meath on Sunday. With a hectic pace on very narrow roads, crashes were inevitable and sure enough the first of many occurred soon after the start. Alex and Frank avoided falling and rode strongly with Alex taking a superb 5th overall and Frank finishing with the bunch. Frank is riding back into form having fractured his elbow in Ras Connachta and I’d say he was glad to finish intact yesterday in what surely must have been a nervous 80kms. Well done to both riders.
On the local scene, Tonto Brady was the sole representative of the club in the final round of the Bike Shop League on Friday evening. The five mile time trial from Oylegate to Ferrycarrig posted some fast times with Tonto taking a magnificient 3rd place on handicap and placing him 10th overall in the league. Times are posted on the Wheelers web site. You know what you want for Christmas now Tonto, a low profile bike, aero helmet, skin suit, power tap, disc wheel and an entry form for the Gorey 3 day and some money left over for Lanzorote! Only kidding…. the entry form is free!
