WESTERN LAKES LEAGUE

Round four of the WLCC League took place last Wednesday 18th July. In total, 31 cyclists signed on. Conditions were wet and windy but a fast pace ensued from the start. The scratch group caught the race leaders just before Hollymount. Padraig Marrey won the sprint at the end with fellow RAS rider Michael Flanagan coming in second.
The league has many aims, 1 to get everyone out cycling, 2 to develop the skills necessary to cycle in a group as well as race in a group, 3, learn about tactics competitors, wind, how to use the group, how to make the course best suit you, attacking, defending and finally how to finish of the race in the sprint, 4 the most important aim is to create a camaraderie amongst the members so that friends and training buddies can made.
Well done to everyone who participated.
The top ten was as follows:
1st Padraig Marrey
2nd Michael Flanagan
3rd Kieran Heneghan
4th Mark Kelly
5th Sean O’Malley
6th Shane Gilligan
7th Colm Jennings
8th Noel Gibbons
9th Martin Joyce
10th John Walsh
With just one round of the league left on Wednesday 15th August, Colm Jennings, in his debut season, secured first place overall with another consistent performance.
With only twelve points separating second from sixth, there will still be plenty to play for at the next race.
Thanks very much for all the people who volunteered their help.
