A great night for the future of the club with the inagural running of the Ladies 10 mile TT championship on the Danny O’Shea course from Jack Whites in Brittas Bay.
Following a day of wild weather the gods were shining on the Sorrento riders with nearly dry roads and favourable winds on this rolling test.
The winner in the ladies section was Suzanne White who has taken a number of wins this year and is enjoying here racing year so far on both road and now on the track as well, followed in second place by Jackie MacNamee by a slim margin ahead of Aine MacCarthy in third spot. A superb performance by Suzanne whose time would have been good enough to take second in the men’s race .
The men’s championship was won by Paul Cullinan just outside of the sub 24 minute time with Alan MacNamee and Patrick Bradshaw rounding out the top three.
The handicap section proved a happy hunting ground for Eileen O’Sullivan taking the overall win for a second time this season making it a great night for the girls in the club. In second Patrick Bradshaw ahead of Suzanne White by .06 of a second…
With three races left the league is still up for grabs with both first and second still with a marshalling duty left third placed rider Roy Bowden can make up some ground in the coming weeks.
