Bob Troy Summer Series Week 4

The penultimate night of this year's summer series was another super night for cycling with warm sunshine and light winds. A change in format this week, switching to the Whitechurch circuit and a predict your time competition. This gave competitors the option of going flat out or take a more leisurely approach while still having the chance to win on the night. It was decided to award the Joe Fitzgerald Memorial Trophy to the rider closest to their time thus making it an all inclusive event🏆
Competition was fierce and some very close times were predicted and achieved, though some were way too enthusiastic and miles out 😊
Fastest rider on the night was Conor Coleman followed by Aidan Connell with Alan Gibson in third place. However Alan Gibson was closest to his time by 2 seconds and will be awarded the much coveted Cup at next weeks prize giving. Congratulations Alan🏆 Alan also has a full house in the A4 catagory and leads that group, can he make it 5 out of 5 next week?
Damien Travers was closest in the LC racers by 33 seconds. Michael Curran got full marks in the LC grouping with Pádraig de Búrca and John Campion also on the scoreboard.
Alice Fitzgerald had a great spin and was only 24 seconds off her target in the female catagory🚴‍♀️
Kyle Walsh was closest in the A3/Junior catagory followed by Alan Lyons and Mark McGarry. David Gaffney was most accurate in the Juniors with Cal Tutty 2nd and Darragh McGee 3rd. Well done to all who took part and we look forward to next week's competition. 🚴‍♀️🏁☀️
This week's route was most challenging for the organizors and stewarts as it is such a busy road Huge thanks to Darren on start line, Ann on sign in, our motorbikers Lar and the two Tom's, our men and women on the course Benny, Tom, Judith, PJ, Rory, Joe, Paul, Ann, Stephen, Karen, finish line Nora, Michael, Anthony, John.

Great season opener for DCC Junior Riders Mark McGarry and Kyle Walsh🚴🚴

What an opener for Mark McGarry and Kyle Walsh. The lads travelled to Newcastle West for the Michael Shields Road Race in Limerick.

Kyle got caught in a crash on the first lap but managed to get back on and finished well up in the main bunch finishing 12th in a large field and putting down a marker for season to come.

Paul O’Connell the Newcastle West Cycling Club rider attacked very shortly after the start and put in an 80km solo breakaway ride to win the race.

However the excitement was behind and in the bunch sprint Mark’s trade mark sprint ensured the honours in the gallop for DCC to take 2nd overall in the A3/Junior Race from Christopher Donald (Team Madigan CC) 3rd, Liam Crowley (O’Leary Stone Kanturk) 4th and and Daniel Yon Hin (O’Leary Stone Kanturk 5th.

Great result for Mark and Kyle who will undoubtedly produce exciting results in the year to come. 🚴🚴

League commences from 6.45pm, starting times will be advised Wednesday night please adhere to Covid 19 restrictions.

Our junior riders are performing strongly each week with David Gaffney still heading the group, Cal, Darragh and Max all cycling consistently.
Mark McGarry retains the lead in the A3/Juniors though Kyle and Dylan are hot on his heels each week.
The ladies are battling hard with Elia still leading the field, Carol and Alice are flying the flag for the leisure groups!🚴‍♀️
The A4 category remains unchanged with Alan Gibson still in control, Gerry Lattimore and Anthony Dwyer also recording great times.
The Limited competition group has good numbers each week. Eamon Phelan holding on to the lead with Johnny Byrne and John Campion improving each week.
