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.
