Good racing in Davidstown tonight. The Vet group had a 2 min 30sec over the A4 but losing about 30secs a lap the lead was down to 20 seconds as they took the bell. The groups came together in the last kilometer with the firepower of the almost 40 strong A4 peloton catching the tiring Vet group which was down to 8 riders at that point. Declan Delaney , Barrow Wheelers, launched an attack before the final bend and held his lead up the long final straight to finish on his own just ahead of team mates John Merrigan and Micheal Walsh for a Barrow top three. A few more in the vet group could have made the difference so a big call out for more  O/50s!

In the Novice race a very close three man sprint was taken by Jonathan Russell SERC from Tom Purcell Gorey CC and John Busher Slaney CC. Again a shout out for more novices to take part.

Thanks to all drivers, marshals and helpers for keeping the riders safe on the circuit. We roll out again for the next four weeks so please come along to support the races by riding or helping out.
