The final round of the Niall Clarke league concluded tonight. First, I d like to thank Niall Clarke for supporting the 12-week League and for his continued support at the track. Also we had great Prizes on show. Wahoo Fitness Watches and plenty of goodies from BBB Cycling ,High 5 and Cyclon bike care and VIP World Cup tickets courtesy of The Bear Group.
Luke Potter was a great help throughout the series keeping an eye on the league table, also in the background was Mr Off road, Martin Grimley! Thanks also to Barry Rogers and Paul McAvinney for helping with sign-on and chip collecting. Thank you to the parents, kids, and adults for coming and racing and supporting.
On the night Eire McCrystal won the girls with Ava Baker in 2nd and Ciara O Connor 3rd but it was Ciara who took home the big prize by winning the overall series from Eire in 2nd and Ava in 3rd. Josh Turner was 1st in the boys, Logan McMcAreavey in 2nd, and Nathan Baker in 3rd. For the overall series, there was a change in place with Logan winning the series and Josh 2nd. Conor McGuinness took the final spot on the series podium by coming 3rd.
It came down to the final race to see who was going to get 2nd and 3rd in both the male and female races. On the night Conor Murphy was first from Declan McEntee 2nd and David O Neill 3rd. We knew David had won the league before tonight but Conor murphy really wanted those VIP tickets for Dublin next week. Conor Moved into 2nd over and Declan McEntee held third by finishing in the top 5. The girls were similar with Rhiannon Dolan knowing she had done enough to win the overall and barring complete catastrophe, Katie Turner would lose the VIP tickets to Dublin. Thankfully she didn’t. 3rd place was also up for grabs between Holly McCaffery and Hazel Murphy. It was Holly that finished ahead of Hazel thus taking 3rd. So in the end, Rhiannon Dolan wins the Wahoo Rival watch and Katie has her VIP ticket for the World Cup. 3rd Place goes to Holly.
Well Done all.
For the next 2 Wednesdays, there will be no race. But I will be there to turn the lights on for training. It will be an open training night for all cycling Ireland members 7-8 pm. You can join in on the structure or just ride laps on your own.
