    RONAN CROWNED 2017 CLUB CHAMPION

    Congratulations to Ronan McCauley who won the club championship today on our Mountcharles circuit.
    On what was a cold wet November morning 12 club members lined up for the 2017 title. John Bradley and Ed set off first with a 7 minute advantage over Bill, Drew, Eugene and Ronan, with the fast men, Tom, Roger, Kieran, Damien, Darragh and Paul a further 3 minutes behind.
    After 2 laps John was the sole leader of the race having dropped Ed. Bill and Ronan were in hot pursuit, with Drew and Eugene a little way back, and the scratch group steadily closing the gap behind all the time. The scratch group would finally catch Bill & Ronan half way round the final lap but John Bradley was still out front. With only 1km to the finish the peloton had John within their sights. However, just as they were about to catch him Ronan launched a blistering attack which caught even Darragh & Paul napping at the back 😉 With 1km to go Ronan put the head down and charged for the finish line to take a brilliant and well deserved victory.
    Afterwards it was back to Tom’s for a warm coffee and there was plenty of post race analysis and what could have been’s.
    As always a huge thanks to all of the marshals who stood out in wintery conditions to ensure a safe event.
