Stephen Roche Grand Prix

Adam Thatcher Tour de France yellow jersey winner 2024, Pedro Delgado Tour de France yellow jersey winner 1988, Ryan Byrne Tour de France green jersey winner 2024!!  (no pressure boys!)

Tour de France winner Pedro Delgado along with Nicolas Roche were the star guests at wendesday evenings Stephen Roche GP in Dundrum. Slaneys Adam Thatcher finished 2nd, Ryan Byrne 5th (U14), Marc Thatcher 6th (U12) while Mick McLean was 1st……….across the finish line at the race begun. Unfortunately Reece Young was suffering from a chest infection and both he and Elliott missed the race.

Another Slaney star to miss the Stephen Roche GP this week was Fionn Jordan. Our climber supreme is unwell at the moment and was in hospital for a few days this week undergoing tests. Fionn always has a smile on him but must have been beaming when Nicolas Roche rang him yesterday to enquire how he was and to wish him well. Nicolas has a busy week between the National TT champs on Thursday and the road race on Sunday and it was a lovely gesture and much appreciated. We’re looking forward to Fionn disappearing up the hills ahead of us again in the near future!
