On Sunday Dec 12th, 6 hardy WLCC members competed in the rain and mud at the Connacht Cyclocross championships in Spiddal, Co. Galway. First off were the Youths with a challenging circuit for the U8 and U10 and the U12s doing 4 laps of the same course. Some close racing ensued and a few tactical lessons learned but WLCC came away with all 3 youth members on the podium of their various age categories:
Kyle Marrey (U8) - 1st
Cathal McTavish (U10) - 2nd
Rory Wilson (U12)- 2nd
Next up was the senior B race and PJ McTavish put in a great ride despite a slow front puncture to gain a solid 8th placing. In the A race, Shaun Barnicle moved up from the B category and received just rewards with a 2nd place in the Elite Mens. Rounding out a great day for WLCC cyclocrossers was the omnipresent old fox Padraig Marrey getting 1st in the Masters 50 category.
Shaun Barnicle (Elite men) - 2nd
Padraig Marrey (M50) - 1st
