We hope that you all had a lovely weekend.
Finally we were blessed with fine weather this weekend which was very welcome after all the rain we have had over the last few months.
Race Training continued on Saturday morning where the lads got in a good 100km spin. Sunday we had 20 cyclists out on the club morning spin. In Borrisokane, we were joined by a few members of Lower Ormond CC which was great and they cycled with us for the remainder of the morning. This weeks spin took the group over a relatively flat route covering a distance of 80km. Well done to everyone who were out on the morning.
On Sunday club member David Kyle kicked off his open race season. He travelled to Tralee in Co.Kerry to take part in the Lacey cup. We wish you the best of luck with your season ahead David. I’m sure we’ll see more of our racers in action over the next few weeks.
