Ulster retains Inter-Provincial title at Orangefield

The sun shone (mostly) on the cream of Ireland`s Youth Track Cyclists in Belfast at the weekend where the competition for the Inter-provincial Championship, and the Seán MacAogin trophy took place at the Orangefield Track.

Inter-Pro 2017B

In the `senior` Under 16 Category, Leinster`s David O`Sullivan took the competition to Ulster, narrowly losing out on the win in the 500metre Time Trial by less than half a second, but getting his own back by taking the win in the 3k Scratch. The Ulster nemesis on both occasions was recent European Youth Olympic rider Shay Donley.

Leinster also provided the winner of the Under 14 Time trial in the shape of Andrew Kelly, but Ulster were dominant in the Scratch event, taking all four points-scoring places.

Likewise in the Under 12 category, it was Ulster`s Girls – Katie Neill, Maria McAllister and Amber Young who dominated the events but spirited performances by Leinster riders saw the competition tight throughout the day.

At the end of a full day`s competition, with emphatic wins in the Team and Italian Pursuit events, Ulster again ran out the winners of the competition and will have their name engraved on the Seán MacAogin trophy for the 4th year in succession.

Well done to all riders and the Provincial Coaches and Managers who made the event a success once again.

Madison Training Session – Monday 21st

There will be a final Madison SQT for those who wish to participate in the years Madison Demo Event on Sunday 27th at Sundrive. All riders must be passed as competent to conduct changes from within the race line and please find attached a list of rider attendance from our training sessions, and a list of riders who in consultation with Fintan have shown a reasonable competency to allow them to participate.  Our first training session just had the madison changes which of course is the first step. Subsequent sessions focussed on the changes from within the line.  Riders who wish to ride, need to complete the process, to allow us to conduct this event safely.  This event (for this year) is open to Junior/Senior/Masters and for this year you may ride with a rider from another club.  Riders who have raced Madison are deemed to be competent. In the interest of rider safety we and as this is a demo event, we will be limiting entry to a max of 12 teams.  This next session is just for those who definitely intend riding the Demo event, and those who have been passed competent would also benefit from the session.
