    Comments Off on The Big Guns

    In a great night of racing on a tough circuit the fast men(and woman) came out to play and made a great night of close racing with a great finale in our penultimate race of the year. The circuit at Kilmacurragh always favours a strong rider with a kick as the finish is uphill on […]

    A battle royale took place on the Ballymurin circuit last night with the main protagonist’s fighting it out right to the line on this uphill sprint finish in the club road race championship.

    The waters of the Varty reservoirs were like millponds last night but that didn’t stop Club chair Stephen Healy making a big splash in only his second race of the league series, winning by 10 seconds from his marker Suzanne White. Both riders sliced through the field catching Aine MacCarthy (3rd) and Patrick Bradshaw(4th) less […]

    A very strong performance by Dave Peelo following a couple of marshalling stints showed his sights are firmly set on this years league title with a strong 10 Mile TT on the Beehive RAB circuit .

    First out of the blocks last night on the Gregory’s circuit Ehmar Qureshi defied the bookies staying ahead of the chasing pack to claim top spot on this fast lumpy route on his brand new bike. A great ride by Ehmar who only started riding races this year. In second place was Roy Bowden who […]

    This week we congratulate our chair Paul O’Donoghue, the genial and tireless face of the club (for decades) on what seemed like one of his most difficult challenges. In the last week he rode the 1000km Alicante Audax event which took in a staggering 15,000 metres of climbing in the allotted 75 hours for the […]
