WW Hamper Race


In a great day for our underage section Adam Thatcher took 1st place from Ryan Byrne and Fionn Jordan in a Slaney CC 1,2,3 in the under 12 race at todays hamper race in Wexford. Slaney’s Rory Murphy was just outside the top three in this event. There was more success for Slaney in the under 14 race where Neil Kelly took home 3rd prize while we also had the Thatchers, Murphys and Dobbs well represented in the shorter underage events. All of these riders came were regular participants in our underage racing and coaching this year. Some of the Slaney competitors are pictured with Sean Kelly at the prizegiving at the Wexford Youths FC Complex.

Veteran Philip Cassidy took victory in the main event outsprinting his breakaway rivals David Walsh and Robin Kelly. Paul Bolger, a product of our novice league, was best placed Slaney rider in the race. I’ll post a link later today to plenty more pictures.
