Slaney news….

Slaney’s Adam Thatcher pictured at the press launch for FBDs sponsorship of Cycling Irelands Talent Team 2020 today in Dublin. At 13 Adam is one of the youngest of a great crop of 16 underage riders chosen for the team. The plan is to develop their talents with quality coaching and mentoring, help them progress in the sport and maybe even produce some medals at Olympics 2020! (And if that happens we can all claim credit and say it all started when he was a 8 or 9 year old coming out with us on the Sunday tours!) The next big target for the Slaney underage team is the Rás na nÓg 2 day in Drogheda where Adam, Fionn Jordan, Ryan Byrne, Reece Young and Elliott Young will represent the club.

Looking for two good sportives in the next few weeks?? Look no further…


The 2012 Slaney Novice /A4 league commences next Tuesday evening on the Davidstown Circuit. Format like last year underage off first, than a handicapped novice and A4 race. More details over the weekend.

Lead cars & marshalls – we will not run the races unless we have sufficent marshalls to ensure the safety of our riders especially our underage so please ensure we have a good turn out of club members to help. If you are not racing or are barred from competing by your amazing cycling ability (!) come along and help run the event. This years races at fortnightly so we’re only looking for a couple of hours of your time each month.
