| Comments Off on Aine takes Corncrake Crown

On a misty night in the Wicklow hills, inform rider Aine MacCarthy, fresh from a podium place this week in the ladies series at Corkagh Park, took honours on the corncrake circuit. The racing was fast and furious but didn’t put off Aine who led in Eileen O’Sullivan for a great one, two for the ladies.

The scratchman Paul Cullinan had to work hard on this shorter route to catch those ahead and his labours paid off to claim third place on the night just one minute down on the winner.

The league is now very tight at the top with one race left(Hill Climb) with full handicap points being available on the Altidore climb. The leader Paul Cullinan is now three points ahead of Roy Bowden with Dave Peelo a further two back. 

Last Race;

Thursday 26th August – Altidore- The Grove Bar 7.30pm.
