RESULT OF 19.5 ml ROAD RACE

Posted on

At last, the result of last weeks road race, which was over a course of 19.5 mls and was ridden in horrible wet, windy weather. The course was Dolla through Silvermines to the Limerick road then a left turn to Birdhill roundabout then all the way back to the Five Alley. The weather really was diabolical but there was still a fairly good sign-on of hardy souls. The fastest time on the night went to Pat Bergin with Eamon Hartnett and Liam Callaghan hot on his wheel! When times were adjusted Kevin Byrne claimed third, a great effort as he […]

For TT4, we were back to the wet, cool weather – a horrible evening for racing but in spite of that a good number of hardy souls turned out for the time trial.

We have been sick of being drowned and frozen so we really enjoyed the change – and it did no harm to the number of riders taking part – over 140 – a new record! They were divided into two groups – one starting at 9.30am and the second at 10.30am and both covered the 73 miles with a food stop in Portumna Forest Park. The Lakeside Hotel in Ballina […]

Last Thursday, the Wheelers held the 3rd of the 6 TTs in the J.Moynan Series. It was a 15 mile course from Moneygall to Roscrea roundabout and back.

In the on-going battle for fastest time, this evening was the turn of Pat Bergin with a time of 37.01, closely followed by Eamon Hartnett on 37.16 and Liam Callaghan on 37.24. When the times were adjusted, Tommy Hanrahan took 3rd, and John Foote and John O’Carroll riding well within their […]

RESULT OF THE 12 MILE ROAD RACE

Posted on

Continuing our search for new race routes, last Thursday we returned to one that the Wheelers have not used for several years and it proved to be a hard and testing course – and that was from Donal Ryans, the old N7 and the road up to the Silvermines, finishing at the hall. Inspite of the weather not being the best, the sign-on was the largest seen for a little while. In the flat race Liam Callaghan took third spot just seconds behind Pat Bergin in second and in the race result, young Darren Dunne in his first club race […]
