Winner Ian Richardson receives the trophy from Geraldine O’Shea
After a number of attempts to win,UCD Fitzcycles rider Ian Richardson pulled off a super victory in the Danny O’Shea Open Memorial 10 mile time trial on Saturday over the fast Beehive circuit near Wicklow town.
A quality field of 29 riders rode in cloudy but warm conditions on the old N11 road to Jack Whites pub and return.
Featuring some stretches of new tarmac following the motorway construction this proved a popular stretch with the riders.
In second place the experienced Greg Swinand of Aqua Blue followed in 39 seconds back with another UCD man Con Collis a further 12 seconds back.
A super event to remember the long time commissar and founding member of Sorrento Cycling Club.
The cup was presented by Danny’s widow Geraldine with the results and times being administered by the club racing secretary Joanne O’Shea, Danny’s daughter.
The tension is beginning to build now with only four events left in the league and championship season.
This week we hold our very popular 25 Mile TT starting from the Tap Pub on the old N11.
The table is tight at the top with the ever consistent Mark McGarry leading Dave Peelo by a narrow margin of 11 points with improving Ciaran Mulcahy, Roy Bowden and Paul Cullinan all vying for places on the podium over the next few races.
Better Late than never…due to the Mick Byrne event last Sunday we got a little behind on the paperwork…Congratulations to Ciaran Mulcahy on a fine win on the longer circuit beating Billy Bourke into second spot by a nose…next week we hold the 10 Mile TT Championship event from he Beehive and expect to see many of our riders back out on this great new circuit.
