Sprinters League : Round 6 (Result)

<Overall Results  and Table after Round 6>

Report Round 6
Round 6 of the league highlighted the benefit of a regular sprint league as riders got to try out different combinations ahead of the upcoming National Championships and the trip to Glasgow in September. Hats off to junior rider David O’ Sullivan who stepped up to the plate and rode as Man 3 behind the Ulster Express duo of Mairs and Barnes. In their first outing their times were very encouraging and bode well for the future. It was good to see Colm O Cuinneagain back in action as he joined up with club mate Rob Murphy and reigning M50 Sprint and TT Champion Eddie Lynch to record a super time on a windy night. And we had a record! The Master’s record which requires a combined age of 135 years was broken by the 3 C’s, Collins, Curtis and Caffrey with a time of 50.71 secs which shaved just 0.11 of off the record set by Collins, Brendan Whelan and Terry Cromer 9 years ago. In the 1 lap TS we saw the irrepressible Susie Mitchell and young gun Eimear McMullen record two times which mark them down as favourites for the upcoming National Championships. Aisling Conlan, Anne Coleman and Deirbhle Ivory continued to improve and will all challenge for the podium at Nationals. And finally, what can one say about about National Over 60’s Sprint Champion Paul O’ Connell! As one rider in his 40’s said “When I grow up I want to be like Paul!”. The man keeps producing the goods week in, week out. All this on a windy night with the heavens opening just as we finished! In the overall standings, Tony Mairs holds a slender lead over John Caffrey. And we now have 45 riders on the results list. Big thanks to Hugh Byrne, William Cannon, Ger Ivory and Mark Kiely for running the gates, watches and coaching. Your efforts were appreciated by all of the riders.

Report Round 5
We had reduced numbers as many of our regulars were racing abroad but we still managed to have a varied and competitive event. We started with a flying 200 and two match sprints for all, then a standing half lap out of the gate followed by another start (just for practice!) and a mixed ability 3 up Team Sprint. This event was quite popular and one we may include again! Finished with two Rolling Kilo Group Sprints and all went home suitably tired and sunburnt!
