Four club members travelled to Dundalk to day to take part in the Traders Cup race held on the hilly Leinster C’ship course. Alex Williams, Frank Dunne, Frank O’ Leary and Murt Doyle all rode well with Alex finishing 2nd B Cat and Frank Dunne 4th B. With the C’s getting a 12 min handicap it was a tough chase for the scratch group but they eventually made contact. Unfortunately the break escaped without a Slaney rider but the lads were happy enough with their respective performances and look forward to the Carrick Cabs Cup on Tuesday. This is a well supported event on a good circuit and the best of luck to all taking part. Contact Gianni re back up as he has kindly offered to help out on the day.
Adam Thatcher took part in the under age racing in Dundalk taking 4th place in the under 12 event. Adam rode agressively throughout the race but was overtaken at the finish. As a 10 year old Adam is giving away a couple of years to some of his competitors but the experience will stand to him in the long run.
There’s a good photo of Adam on IrishCycling.com as well as the two Frank’s
