Racing news๐Ÿšด๐Ÿ

DCC had one of its biggest showings today in Carrick for the Bobby Power Memorial with eight riders contesting the A4 and the combined A3/Junior race over an undulating course with a sharp uphill finish.

It was a glorious sunny day for racing and DCC did not disappoint.

With 5 riders in the A4 race this provided an opportunity for team work and by all accounts the DCC train was well visible in the final km before the turn helping Taidgh Murray to take his first podium finish claiming 3rd. This is a great result for Taidgh who is new to racing at this level. Jason Travers and Ian Holland were in the mix to the end with Michael Morrissey and Anthony Dwyer finishing in the bunch. We done lads.

DCC had three riders on the combined A3/junior race over a slightly longer distance.

One rider broke clear on the last lap and in the bunch sprint Mark McGarry claimed 2nd in the sprint and 3rd overall. DCC were prominent throughout the race with Kyle Walsh taking a top 10 finish in the gallop and Mark Rowe finishing well up in the bunch. ๐Ÿšด Great racing guys.๐Ÿ‘

The leisure riders also had a busy weekend

The Saturday Club took to the mountains, climbing up Cushcam to Bearys Cross and onto Clonmel mountain road, descending to Rathgormack to Clonea Power and home via Kilmac and Coast road.

Sunday had all groups in action, our G1s went racing (see report)

DCC notes 13th September 2020

Following the club and counties great success in the All Ireland cycling challenge DCC continued to rack up the miles. Here's how we rolledโ€ฆ.

The Saturday Club cycled in beautiful September sunshine. A 100k circuit up to Ballysaggart to Araglen, home via Lismore. 7 onboard at 29.7kph.

Our G4 riders took on the revel tour route traversing the Cork & Kerry border. Here is their report from the day
Nine cyclists from Group 4 took on the challenge of the Tour De Beara . Even though the event itself was cancelled they had a great welcome from the people of west Cork and Kerry. The weather conditions were perfect as they set off from Kenmare on a calm Saturday morning at a steady pace. Up and over the Healy pass and onto Castletownbere for the first coffer stop. They then headed to Allihies and followed the very steep and challenging coast road to Eyeries. Once completed all were ready for the lunch stop in Ardgroom. Harrington's the local shop, post office and restaurant provided a fine spread of soup and sambos which were very welcome at this point. Reenergised after the break they headed for Lauragh to take on the Healy pass for the second time, a bit more difficult due to a headwind. All safely over they headed to Glengarriff and after a slow drag some record speeds recorded with the wind on our back on the descent to Glengarriff. A brief stop to refuel for the last climb over the Caha pass and back to Kenmare. 160Km done a first for some in the group with 2,200m climbing.
Well done to all a great achievement and teamwork on the day.

Sunday was a misty murky day but all groups put in fine performances

G3 had 12 out heading up and over the Mauma, crossing over Millstreet, dealing with a fierce headwind over to Clashmore before availing of a tailwind home from Ardmore. 100k at 27.2kph with 1000m climbed.

The remainder of the G4 who didn't travel to the rebel county also climbed mountains, taking the Mauma from the other side. ... See more
