Deano delivers at last!
Paul Deans took a long overdue win in the IVCA DMS in Batterstown tonight with the move he’s been rehearsing for the last three years. Normally he attacks off the front about a mile out and is reeled in soon after, and ending up well down the bunch afterwards. This time he went earlier than usual and dangled about 50 yards off the front as the bunch hurtled along, not too worried about Deano. The road twisted a bit and when Deano got another hundred yards advantage or so he realised that he was in with a good chance and gave it everything using the windy road to his advantage. With 1k to go the bunch took a serious interest in catching him. He rounded the last corner with a significant gap but it was still a long way to the line, he had been out there for a while and the bunch were closing fast. He needed all of the gap that he had gained but held on for a well deserved win.
