Posted on

Big time cycle racing returns to North Tipperary this weekend with the second running of the North Tipp Wheelers Open Road race. The inaugural event last year received widespread acclaim for the course, the organization and hospitality afforded the riders who had travelled from all over the country. The local club received a boost this year with the event being offered an even better slot on the Cycling Ireland calendar as it is now positioned at a perfect time of the year when most of our top cyclists are reaching their peak during a busy racing season.

Edvins Silovs wins at Ras Luimni: There is really only one story that everyone is talking about this week, and that is the superb win by club member Edvins Silovs in the A4 category at Ras Luimni last Sunday.

The NTW weekly club update starts on a sad note this week. We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to Lulu, Joseph, Luke and Joey Donnelly on the passing of Lulu’s sister Maria recently. May she rest in peace. Club Spins: Sunday Orange/Red Group club spin: A request went out to those on the orange/red group spin on Sunday morning to send in a report. Many thanks to those who kindly sent in reports! There was one report who’s author shall remain nameless, which was chosen as the “winner” for this week. Get speculating…it goes as follows: “Five went […]
