Stephen Roche Grand Prix

Georoid Loughnane continued his fine run of form in the Stephen Roche Grand Prix last night. The Criterium is always run at a frantic pace and is a race which Simon has placed 1st & 2nd in in recent years. Might be worth putting a few bob on Gearoid for the upcoming Club C/ship. By the way it looks like Gearoid ‘edged’ out Brian Taffe ……..this time!!!!!!!!!

Report from Gearoid below:

Group of 3 clear by 2 seconds, sprint finish by remainder of bunch. This was a handicapped race with C`s, Juniors and Ladies off first, B`s at 45 seconds and A`s at 30 seconds. The B`s caught the first group after 8 laps of 29 and held off all except 9 A riders. Group of 3 jumped clear with 500m to go and held off sprinting bunch in which 2 or 3 riders came off in a heavy collision.
