On a wet windy evening in the village of Cross, 61 hardy cyclist turned up to race in honor of the great John Holian who was from the area. A 3 minute Handicap separated the A4's from the A1's with the strong A3 group in the middle. A strong 9 person group broke away from the A3 group including 2 international junior triathletes. This group worked well together and never looked like been caught. In the sprint for the line it was young Talent of Con Doherty Westport Covey who showed the after burners to the rest of the break winning the sprint comfortably.
