The first race in the Novice League will take place next Wednesday evening with sign on at Mernaghs car park at 7pm. The event is a 5mile time trial from Oylegate to Enniscorthy and is open to the Touring and Underage sections of the club. This does not include Winter Racers who have been out on the tour! As the touring section give up their Sundays to facilitate in stewarding of races, why not come along and help out on the night. Judging by the speed of the gallop from Oylegate last Sunday we could enter a pursuit team in London 2012!
Meeting: Club meeting tonight in Bellefield GAA complex @ 7.30pm to discuss Mt. Leinster Challenge followed by meeting with riders and back up crews for the Gorey. Please attend as we need to know who is available to drive riders to and from Tallaght and to do service over the 3 days.
Well done to Steven “Ted” Kelly who rode a blinder in Fermoy on Sunday just missing out on the break but battled on to finish in the chasing break. Steven was a great supporter of the tour all Winter but unfortunately does not qualify for the touring league, even with mudguards! Meanwhile Alex Williams took part in the Ben McKenna Memorial in Balbriggan and was happy enough to finish with the main bunch in what was a tough battle from beginning to end with victory going to ex pro David McCann. Murt Doyle and Frank O’Leary are recovering from illness and hope to be ready for the weekends action in Gorey.
