Mt Leinster MTB Challenge – Results and thanks.

Thank you to everyone who came and took part in the Racing795 Mount Leinster MTB Challenge. It was an absolute pleasure to welcome you all to Bunclody.

We were blown away by the speed of the S1 racers at the sharp end. They just can’t help it, racing is in their DNA. “Not a race? I don’t understand.”

We were equally blown away by the achievements of some riders at the other end of the field. OK, they might have taken four hours to get around, but in another life they might have spent Sunday in bed or on a barstool.

Most of all, we were delighted with the way everyone got into the spirit of it. Fast or slow, tall or small, at the end of the day we’re all mountain bikers riding great trails in a beautiful country. It’s good to do it together once in a while.

Racing795 Open Duathlon – 19th February 2012

What a glorious morning for a duathlon, and what a turnout! Well done to everyone who took part. Thank you all for coming and we hope you enjoyed it.

Top club honours went to TriCW men and Wexford Tri women,  but it was great to see all four tri clubs had top 3 men or women finishers.

Thanks to PJ Dunne and his merry band of helpers for organising everything. Also, thanks to Kildavin GAA for allowing us to use their facilities.

Winter TT League Round 1, and “Where’s Frank?”

Racing795’s annual Winter time trial handicap league kicked off in Ferns in monsoon conditions on Sunday 23rd October.

Aisling Foley was the winner on the day and is the early series leader. No doubt the handicapper will be out to get her next time.

Ross Moorhead had the fastest gross time, covering the 18km on his agricultural touring bike at an average speed of 35km/h. Very impressive in the conditions.

A notable absentee from the race was Frank Burke who, to give him his due, had a decent excuse. He cycled from Bunclody to Galway during Saturday’s monsoon!

Round 2 takes place on 20th November.

Winter TT League – Round 3

A “1-2-3” for the girls, winner Lorraine flanked by Ciara (2nd) and Joy (3rd).

The sunshine made a welcome return this morning for Round 3 of the R795 Winter Time Trial league. Lorraine Byrne was the worthy winner on the day with a big improvement on her previous time. Ciara and Joy also made  significant improvements, coming home second and third respectively.  Martin put out the megawatts and got around in the fastest gross time. Well done to everyone who took part and thanks to Tom, Ruairi and Paul for marshalling.

The club duathlon which  takes place on 20th February will also double as the Winter TT league Round 4. Should make for an interesting twist in the tale.
