The 6th round of our novice & underage training league took place last Thursday evening. Event organiser Pat Whitney was delighted to have 11 competitors plus the cyclists chaperoning the youngest riders for safety on the busy road. John Butler assisted with times with John Busher and Davy Hynes helping with the holding duties. Thanks especially to John Busher who put up a great pair of cycling sunglasses for the rider who finished closest to their estimated finish time – winner was Ryan Byrne who guessed a time of 14.17 and finished in 14.15! We hope to arrange a training session on the grass track at Bellefield over the next few weeks for under age and adult riders. More details sooner to event.
Fastest time on the night went to Willie Roche (11.58), followed by Rita Boyle (12.01), David Dempsey (12.20), David Maguire (12.56) and Ann Jordan (15.16). In the under age category Ryan Byrne (14.15) was quickest followed by Neil Kelly (14.44), Andrew Maguire (16.12), Fionn Jordan (16.22), Billy Cooney (16.44) and Conchúir de Rúit who put in his fastest time so far of 23.46. Well done everyone. Watch this space for next event in about a fortnight.
