2013 Eddie Tobin Mem Road Race two time Winner Mark Dowling with Mick Howe & Mick Byrne
Many thanks to all our competitors, drivers, marshals, commissaires and anyone who helped in anyway. Thanks to Derek and Ronan from SERC who stepped in when the race radios went to the junior tour and the Cycling Ireland photo finish camera blew up! Thanks to Paddy Redmond and the Red Cross crew who thought their day was uneventful until a pileup 300m from the finish line in the A3 race! Hope all riders are on the mend and also those who fell in the A4 race. Thanks to the ladies who supported our first ever ladies only race and thanks to Kevin Fortune from Cork who provided the grandstand chair for my mother at the finish line!

HELP NEEDED! To ensure everyones safety we need help on both days. On Saturday we need to marshal the two bends and need a few cars. On Sunday we have 3 races (and also probably a separate womens race) so a minimum of 8 cars required, a broom car/van, and we have 6 road junctions to marshal so about 18 static marshals required. Several people have offered help but we need more bodies. If you are racing Sunday help out on Saturday.
Saturday race starts at 11am so please be in Davidstown by 10.30am at the latest. Sunday race starts at midday so please be in Bunclody by 11.15am. Contact Mick h, Mick B or me to confirm your available. If you can get two or three lads together pick a bend and take responsibility for it. With the weather good and not a lot else on we could have a big field. Its going to be a nice day so no fear of getting wet and you’ll see the race up close & personal!
Slaney CC are hosting Open Youth Races for U16, U14 & U12 on the Davidstown circuit on Saturday 6h July and The Eddie Tobin Memorial for A1/2′s, The Noel Redmond Memorial for A3′s and an A4 road race on Sunday 8th July on the Bunclody circuit.
Can Davy go 5cm better this year?!
This year the A3 race will include round 2 of the Womens Classic League. And with the juniors busy down in Clare this is a good points scoring opportunity!
Like last year you have only two options. If you haven’t contacted me already can club members text (087 8334592) and let me know, A, Who is racing that weekend? or more importantly B, Who is available to help run the races that weekend?.
Can all marshalls be at the GAA club in Bunclody by 11am at the latest. We have 6 junctions to marshall with ideally 3 people per junction so if you can persuade a brother/sister/cousin/complete stranger to come along with you all the better. For Saturday we need marshalls for the 2 bends in Davidstown by 10am for an 11am start. Apart from lead cars we also need a car behind each underage race to comply with CI safety instructions.
