As usual the Des Hanlon proved a hard days work with Alan Galavan getting the clubs best result as 4th overall and 1st unplaced S3 in the combined race. Alan has accumulated 6 points in his first month of bike racing and will soon be in the S2 category at this rate!
Alex rode the A/B race with Murt, Dan and Tomasz in the 2 lap combined race and Patrick, Stephen, Bill and Ken in the 1 lap race. Murt was active in the early break in the 2 lap combined race but just missed getting onto the winning group. Frank Dunne made the trip to Bohermeen and finished 15th in the A/B race. Another difficult event, Frank was in the second group which broke away early and finished just behind the winning break. Pictures of both races now on www.irishcycling.com . Willie McDonald was racing in Dublin and took a second place riding in the IVCA league.
I make that 11 racing, 12 on tour and few more sidelined with work or illness yesterday.
