Collins/Christle Memorial, Kilmessan

There were 110 starters for this event incl Gareth, Pepe, Sean and John Lally. A break of twelve riders were up the road coming to the finish but John fresh from his good showing in the Club TT C/ship during the week took the bunch gallop for the 3rd B pot. This was his first race proper on these shores since his return from his year in Australia & New York (where he has been secretly training). It was a fiercely contested sprint (with a little bit of banging), but John used the wheels well & held his nerve to take it. Sean was also in sprint and took 3rd Vet. Also in Kilmessan, Niall Rock was second in the U12 Leinster C/ship rounding off a great year for him. Keith Daly (DWCC) took the U16 title which the on form Colm Crawley (Balbriggan CC) in 2nd spot.
