“Duane joined Finglas Ravens in the late 80s. He was a very honest rider and loved bike racing. Every race he rode he gave it his best. Never got annoyed, always had a smile and a joke after the race no matter how hard it was. The damp weather in Ireland used to affect his breathing so he decided to head off to Australia where his father Tony was from. He joined Carnegie Caulfield Cycling Club and made great progress on the track in particular. Duane had just turned 30 (1997) and was cycling home from a race with his team mates when he was involved in a serious road traffic accident.  He was in intensive care for eight days and never regained consciousness. He was a big loss to the club and of course his family. There was a mass service for him in Australia and he was brought home. He is buried out in Dardistown along with his mother who passed away in 2013. This race run in his honour, reflects his sense of fair play and encouragement to all and is unique in that overall honours goes to the rider who excels within his class irrespective of category.”
Berni McCormack (Finglas Ravens)

Women’s Track Cycling Workshop

Womens Omnium
A repeated of the very well received 2014 women’s track cycling workshop has been announced for Sunday 24th May 2015. The workshop will take place from 11am to 3pm (sign on & bike hire at 10.30) and is for accredited riders. It will be aimed at those new to the track or those who have been away from it for some time and want to freshen up their skills for the season ahead. More experienced riders are invited and encouraged to come along to hone their skills and help the others get a feel for what its all about! The workshop will be coached by Hugh Byrne and will provide the opportunity for women to try out all the events that make up the Olympic Omnium.  We will also be covering the Team Sprint.

Bunch races will include Points, Scratch and Elimination  and there will be an opportunity to try some of the time trial events such as the Flying 250m, the 500m TT and the Individual Pursuit. We will be giving people an opportunity to practice the team sprint with their club mates, a great chance to start the preparations for the Team Nationals in August. This year, once again, junior women are allowed to ride the Team Sprint Nationals which should make the event even more interesting.

This workshop comes at a great time as two weeks later there will be an opportunity to race in the Duane Delaney (a friendly multi-race type event) and following that the National Olympic Omnium a month later.

Please note accreditation is a prerequisite to attend the workshop. If you are not yet accredited and would like to come along you will have to attend the accreditation on Saturday May 23rd at 2pm at Sundrive or indeed you may have attended the Women ‘specific’ Accreditation on Sat 11th April . 

Accredited junior women are also welcome to attend the workshop.

Cost €10
