Covey League 2019 Final Round

Final round results and Final GC 2019

Bryan Hyland has captured the Covey Club League for 2019. With the mere formality of turning up enough to assure him the overall title Bryan duly obliged on Thursday last.

With ten minutes separating the groups from front to back it was never a sure thing that all groups ahead of the scratch group would be caught. As it turned out the 5 guys of the scratch group caught the remains of groups 1 & 2 with about 6km to go and applied enough pressure to separate themselves from these 4 straight away. Best on the night was the evergreen Michael Brady who took the sprint in impressive fashion.

Thanks to all those that marshaled and organised both this and every round this season, as always it is much appreciated. To all those that tried racing in the league for the 1st time in 2019 we hope to see you back again in 2020.
