Frank O’Leary took a great win in the Charleville 2 Day stage 3 in Cork today. Attacking soon after the start of the stage, Frank came to the finish in a three man group beating Conor O’Shea, winner of the Eddie Tobin road race into second. Frank also took 3rd overall. Both Alan and Frank crashed on yesterdays stage but came out strong today with Alan in a chasing group that was caught by the main field just before the end. Following a difficult year with a broken arm first and then broken ribs following a crash in the Mullingar 2day, Frank is ending the season in great form and heads for the National B champs in Waterford next week where he will be supported by Alan, Dan Szczech and Shane Kelly.
Betty Darcy Memorial Road Race
Slaney had a big turnout of Dan Szczech, Shane Kelly and Caimin Ruth in the A2/A3 race and Rita Boyle, Stephen Kelly, Mick Howe, Tonto Brady Alan Murphy and Mike McLean in the A4 race today. However the win went to another Wexford rider Patsy McCaffery who took the bunch sprint with teammate Dave Allen in 5th. I think Rita was best Slaney finisher in 6th or 7th. All in all another great day for Wexford cycling. More Pictures added…..
