With 7 A4s and 3 A3s racing, the Wheelers were out in force again to assist and to cheer their club mates on. A big well done to Ross O’Meara and Ruairi Cunningham on taking part in their first open race. The first of many no doubt. There were mixed fortunes. In the A3s, Tommy Hanrahan, who had been lying in the top 5 for most of the race, was brought down by a race vehicle and lost any chance of a place although he went on to finish while Liam Callaghan also passed the finish line. In the A4s, Julie White and Sinnead Oakes both finished the race as did Brian O’Neill and Eoin Woolley but the star of the Wheelers today was Dan Hogan who took 3rd place in his first ever race – he hadn’t even done a club race before but decided to give it a go! So very well done to him and to all those who rode, assisted in cars and marshalling and helped with the Family Fun Cycle. A great day for the Wheelers!
Last Thursday was murky, damp and very cold and windy – nothing new there then – but not a bit nice when you are trying to race and that’s what the Wheelers were doing! The night’s offering was a 10 ml road race from Kilkeary to Lisboney via Toomevara. And once again it ended in a great scrap between Charlie Hogan, in his first club race and Duncan Hodgins and it was Duncan who used his race knowledge to gain victory almost on the line. Eoin Woolley came in third while Mikey Connors just held off Julie White for fourth place. Well done to all!
Next Thursdays race is the first of the J.Moynan TT Series and will be on the Yellowbridge- Birdhill and return course. 10 miles.

Good news! Some more club kit has arrived. Not a lot but a little! we have short and long sleeved jerseys and waisted and bib shorts.
We are also going to have to place another order almost immediately so now is your chance to order anything you require. Bear in mind that if it something we don’t hold normally then 10 would have to be ordered. Let me know asap. – Jan
