On August 22nd South East Road Club host the Falling Leaves Classic. Races for A2/A3 and A4 and good prize money.
Best of luck to the Slaney composite team of Frank Dunne, Alan Galavan, Davy Walsh and Conchubhar O’Crualaioch who ride together this weekend at the Ballinrobe 2 day.
Pat Whitney and Frank O’Leary are taking part in a Level 1 Coaching Course in Greystones this weekend. The intensive 3 day course covers a wide variety of subjects aimed at developing the coach and expanding their knowledge of the sport in the area of technical rules and regulations, bike position and equipment, cycling physiology and training principles, hygiene, diet and psychology and will be of great benefit to the club in the long term. If anyone is interested in a foundation level 1 day coaching course there are 2 courses coming up in Bray on the 12th September and Dungarvan on the 25th September.
Sean Kelly Tour of Waterford: We normally have a good turnout from the club at this event but note changes this year – pre entry ONLY and entry closes on August 20th. Also note the 160km starts at 8.30 while the 90km may be shorter then last year but is a hillier coastal affair and starts at 9.30am
racing calendar 2010 REVISED I’ve uploaded the local racing calendar again. The only race free Sunday in September for the County Championships appears to be September 26th. If clubs have other events planned before the season ends if they send them to me I’ll add them to this list and we can can come up with a definitive racing calendar for the next two months.
