Racing From Summerhill

The summer in Summerhill really belied its name today as high winds and rain seemed to the order of the day. Three Slaney cyclist’s braved the weather, Brian Maher and Matt Seebach in the A3 Ian Gallaher Memorial with Paul Noble going the A4 Willie Marks Memorial.

Brian Maher, Matt Seebach and Paul Noble all ready before the off in Summerhill earlier today.

In the A3 race, the early pace was fast as Brian thought he was gone after only 5 minutes but soon got into the pace of things. Matt was his usual strong as an Ox self throughout the race was able to gain his first points of the new season. Brian was able to stay in touch with and finish at the front of the bunch will be happy with today’s performance.

Matt and Brian home safe after the race.

In the A4 race, Paul was able to avoid the obligatory A4 race crash and able to gain points of his own with a Top 6 finish in what was a very strong race for this time of the year especially in today’s weather. There’ll be no rest for Paul as he is racing again tomorrow in Navan this time in the Cycleways Cup. Good luck Paul.
