Busy as ever
As the competitive domestic cycling season begins to wind down our riders are as busy as ever.
The hugely successful Waterford Criterium League finished with a bang on Thursday night last with a 3 event cycling blitz. In the elite competition a 3 way battle between Davy Walsh of Slaney CC, Robin Kelly and Mark Nugent (both Waterford Racing Club) came down to the wire on the final night. Walsh drew first blood claiming the fastest time of the night in the opening time trial but Robin Kelly surged back into contention by winning the elimination race before striking the winning blow in the criterium finishing well clear of his closest competitors to win on the night and win the league overall. Davy Walsh was 2nd, whilst Mark Nugent was 3rd. The A3 competition was won by Neil Butler of Marble City Cyclers, whilst our own Brian O'Keeffe was the runaway winner in the A4 category.
Many thanks to our sponsors on the final night ROCO Scandanavian Windows and Doors, Ciaran Power Sports Massage and of course all of our sponsors, volunteers and competitors over the course of the ten weeks. See you all next year folks.
Robin Kelly carried on his good form into the Taghmon Classic in Wexford last week where he put on a tactical masterclass to outfox his competitors and take a stunning victory on the sharp uphill finish. He followed this up a couple of days later by claiming the Silver Medal at the Munster elite mens road race championships in Fermoy two days later. Well done Robin.
Next up is RAS Connachta and the Suir Valley 3 day international. For more information on Waterford Racing Club go to http://www.waterfordracingclub.com

It does this by having all of its financial transactions finished here in Ireland. And the company here is …
