The Fermoy Cycling Club Hennessy League continues every Tuesday night – thanks to all the parents who have helped out lately with the weekly commute. After 5 weeks of racing , roughly the half way point in the league have a number of members well positioned on the league tables. We have racers in all age groups weekly from Under 12 right up to the scratch race. This is a great environment for juveniles to learn the skills of road racing on a regular basis.
A busy weekend for the juveniles with Amy Fleming racing in Lisburn, Denis O Connor and Dan Murphy racing in “biblical conditions” in Minane Bridge. The non-racing juveniles completed the 80 km option of the Sliabh Luachra Cycling Club Sportive on Saturday last.
Congratulations to Ben Murphy who following a tough weekend of selection races on the hills of Kerry made the six man Irish Under 16 Team for the 5 day Austria Youth Race in August.
The focus now switches to the Sliabh Luachra Cycling Club Sportive in memory of Willie Reen and Paud O’Leary which is on 30th June next with three routes to choose from. The cycle will start at 9 am from Teach Íosagáin Rathmore. Ideal last week preparation for the Ring of Kerry.
Well done to all the club members who supported the Pedal the Peninsula charity cycle based around Dingle last Sunday.
Training for both Juveniles and Adults continues this week.
