It was a miserable day for a race – wet and quite windy. And the problems started before the race even began! On the way to the start, there was a crash involving six riders. All got up and continued, contesting the race but afterwards, it was discovered that jim Carey, who had ridden to a 7th place, had broken a bone in his hand. The riders started in three groups according to handicaps and nine riders from all three groups combined to make a very exciting sprint with Eamon Hartnett claiming third just behind second place man, Shaun Payne while Pat Bergin took the win at the head of affairs.
Thurday is the Flying Mile – the last evening race of the season – and next Sunday is the Club Championship Time Trial.
