Covey League 2018

 

Report Round 6 (final round)

The wet conditions and slippery surface were the main headlines before the final race of the season kicked off. The Aughagower laps circuit was the route for the final round, which been a quite technical course posed problems for the riders considering the conditions. Luckily enough there was a great showing of marshals on hand to insure everyone got through the course and home safely.

The race started off with a group of 4 leading the way out the Leenaune road before the heavyweights in the following two groups were released. Following a brave effort from the front group, the stratch group caught up on the final lap and showed their power to push on towards the finish.

The winner was never in doubt when Ben Walsh crossed the finish line with Richard Meaney and Joe Moran rounding out the top 3. Joe took the 2018 title after a great season’s racing, hard work paying off throughout the year.

Massive thanks to all of our marshals and drivers. It wasn’t the best evening to be out and your presence was greatly appreciated.

Updated table to follow

Wednesday 20th of June sees the next round of the Covey League take place. Sign on is from 18.00-18.30 at the train station with 1st group off at 18:45. Any late arrivals can slot into the scratch group.

The race is similar to last time out in that it starts at the train station and takes in a loop of the Srah course, before turning left at Ayle towards Aughagower and finishing on top of Coilleach. This race is sure to shake up the GC in the league even more than previous rounds with the later groups expected to challenge for the win for the 1st time.

Also remember, as this is a race, outside assistance whether from a vehicle or non racing cyclist is not permitted and will lead to penalties if it occurs and is reported in this race.

If you are not racing and can help out please contact us at westportcc@gmail.com

Route : Approx 42 km with a little sting in the tail.
