We had a fine representation on Sunday in Kilmallock with 6 club members racing, four senior members Dan Hogan, Liam Callaghan, Eoin Woods and David Kyle and, in the Juniors, Eva Moynan and Joseph Donnelly.
In the youth section Eva and Joseph both had great races on what a tough hilly route, it was very fast paced from the start where they were averaging around 33kph, there was a lot of attacking and surging throughout but they both dug deep with Eva placing 5th and Joey placing 6th in their respective races so a huge well done to ye. Ye did yourselves and the club very proud.
Meanwhile in the A4 category Eoin Woods had a great race where he took a fine second place after instigating a break for the last 14km but just lost out at the line after doing trojan work throughout the race. He is now upgraded to A3 and he is absolutely delighted with the result. All that hard training has paid off for you Eoin and a huge well done to you.
Dan Hogan was also racing in the A1/2 category today so well done to you. Liam Callaghan and David Kyle were racing in the A3 category and finished the course in the bunch so also a very well done to you all.
Next week’s Club Training spins are as follows:
PLEASE NOTE: We are moving Start times for the Tuesday and Thursday evening spins to 6pm and the Wed evening spin to 6:30pm due to the shortened evenings starting to become a lot more noticeable. “Hi Vis” clothing and lights are now required for the evening spins as it is starting to get quite dark towards the end of the spins.
Tuesday: Club training spin leaving from Moynans at 6pm. Avg speed on the evening between 28/30kph.
Wednesday: Club intermediate spin leaving from Moynans at 6:30pm. Avg speed between 25/27kph.
Thursday: Club training spin leaving from Moynans at 6pm. Avg speed on the evening between 28/30kph.
Sunday: Our club spin leaves from Moynans at 9am but this weekend it’s a spin with a difference. We will be cruising on the Shannon on the QE2 cruiser after we complete a cycle of approx 80km starting from Nenagh, on to Portumna and on to Mountshannon. There we board the cruiser in Williamstown Harbour and enjoy an hour long trip on the Shannon, visiting popular points along the way. Our bikes come with us and we will enjoy a buffet as we enjoy the scenery so we wont be hungry. The boat drops us off in Dromineer and we can then cycle home 🙂 The price of the trip is €20 and we need to know who is interested in going on this so please contact Jan ASAP.
A good few of our racers will be making the trip to Charleville to take part in the 2 Day stage race being held by Charleville Wheelers CC so the very best of luck to you all!
