  2. The Professor’s legs…

    Comments Off on The Professor’s legs…

    Not quite Fignon…our own Professor Billy Bourke took first place in a cat and mouse game for the club Road Race championship over three laps of a new route near the beehive on Thursday night…

    A six man group turned up the pace during the second lap and pushed each other during nearly an hour of mind games.

    The finish line just over the crest of the hill coming back towards the Beehive was breached first by Billy with Andy Kavanagh close on the wheel followed in by Dave Peelo and Paul Cullinan for joint third.

    The new Club League Winner Roy Bowden finished strongly and will be trying next week in the 25 mile TT winner (from the Tap just down the road) to finish off a great season with maximum points.

     Thanks to George for his stalwart work and to our Marshals for their perserverance…

    Next week we have refreshments after the race to toast Roy’s great season…we hope to seem any of you there!

  3. 10 Mile TT Championship Results

    Comments Off on 10 Mile TT Championship Results

    On a very blustery evening on the Beehive the first of the championship events crowned both the men’s and ladies 10 mile TT champions and for the next year both trophies will reside in the same household with being won by Gillian and Dave Peelo in a sensational  double whammy…

    The man in form however still leading the league after a solid second place is Roy Bowden now by 11 points from Jamie Noone trailing on 42pts.

    On Thursday next we move back to the Filter Bed circuit with 22.5 mile CP over three laps.

    Looking forward to a great race and a forecast of warmer weather on the way!

  4. A Good Wash

    Comments Off on A Good Wash

    A downpour in the minutes leading up to the start led to a damp trip for the riders in race 6 in the club league around the Gregory’s circuit last night. The man in form recently Jamie Noone was unable to catch the two break away men Roy Bowden and Mark McGarry who working together managed to stay ahead of the chasing Noone by nearly 1 minute and 20 seconds on this demanding route.

    The other fast man on the night Dave Peelo took a back seat unfortunately following a puncture shortly after the start.

    The leaderboard has changed now with Roy leading and Jamie up to second moving Paul Cullinan following marshalling duties to third.

    The next race following a two week break around the Mick Byrne is a 10 mille TT which is the first of the championship events and we expect a large field participating at that event.

  5. Corncrake Cranks Up

    Comments Off on Corncrake Cranks Up

    On Corncrake Lane some hearts were broken while stories of unexpected wins were created…a good evening with little wind and a hint of soft rain to come, greeted a small field for race 5 of the club league.

    The strong man Jamie Noone took a break from study to claim second place only seconds from an unexpected winner in Patrick Bradshaw.

    The easy tour leader led his charges to third and fourth places with newcomer Aine McCarthy showing great improvements working with Eileen O’Sullivan to deny the charging racing men behind, some vital points behind.

    The league table is starting to get congested at the top with Paul Cullinan  and Jamie Noone sharing the spoils so far.    

    Well done to Roy Bowden following his fine win in the Vets last weekend  in Race 2 of the Dermot McGrath Memorial in Roundwood.

    Great to see Andy Kavanagh back racing after his recent accident.
