Fun in the Sun – 22nd-23rd May Round-up

A busy weekend of racing just gone, with club members heading for all corners of Ireland.

Aisling and James travelled to  Waterford for the 62km Waterford Adventure Race. Both performed admirably in  tough race with some very steep climbs. Afterwards James declared that he hadn’t up anything as steep since the last time he was up a ladder.

Peter and Martin headed for the Kingdom, to Valentia Island in Kerry, to take part in the Sprint Distance Triathlon. Excellent performances from both – Martin 71st, Peter 171st. Results

Back east newest member John Dempsey (tapering for the Cork Marathon next weekend!) was making his way through the Royal Canal to finish 7th in the SuperSprint Triathlon in Kilcock. Well done John. Kilcock Tri Results [NOTE – At time of writing John was ninth on list but there appears to be an error in the times for positions 2 and 8 so we have promoted John to 7th!]

Finally, Jim, Rudolf and Paddy made the long trek to Magheramorne, Co Antrim for Rd4 of the XCMTB NPS. Great results here again. Rudolf broke back into the top 10 in some style, taking 6th place in Masters. Jim was 11th in Vets despite a puncture and a smashed back wheel, and Paddy came 6th in the U12’s.

Well done to all for flying the 795 flag.
