Club Notes

Monday evening training: circuit training in the complex.

Tuesday Turbo: always guaranteed to be on! We have spare turbos. All you need to bring is a bike, drink and towel.

Lack of website updates: Sorry about the lack of updates on the website in recent weeks. Shane is busy at the moment and won’t be free to start wrecking yere heads again with stuff to do until next week. Expect updates on the hour every hour from next Monday on!! This also happens to coincide with what has been the worst 8 weeks for training in terms of weather that we have seen since the club started in 2007. At times it might seem like there is little going on but that couldn’t be further from the truth. With the evenings getting longer, the sun coming back, the cycling season about to start next week, the 1st Dromineer Duathlon next week and a triathlon season just around the corner = things are about to get very busy.

Junior Cycling: There will be an update on this tomorrow so make sure to check the website. Now with the evenings getting longer we are going to be running regular training sessions after school, in addition to some weekend training dates. All details will be revealed tomorrow.

Senior Cycling: The 2014 cycling season kicks off next week with the Ned Flanagan Memorial race in Monasterevin. We should be well represented at this race, so we are hopeful that Nenagh CC will get its name on the podium for the first time. The lads and ladies have trained well over the winter, even with the atrocious weather conditions, so now it’s just a matter of going out there and getting some points on the board. Our aim is for at least one person from the team to score points at every race we do. Hopefully we get the start we are looking for on Sunday. There is an A4 specific race at this event so try to make it to that if you can. If not, we will see you next week at the Lacey Cup or up in Loughrea.

Dromineer Duathlon: will take place next Saturday. Start time is still to be confirmed. This race is weather dependent. At the moment the forecast is not too bad, but we will update the website if things change. Full details on this event will be available during the week.

Weekend Racing:

  • County Novice: There was no luck for our men’s senior team at the recent county novice 6k road race which was held in Moyne on Sunday. Our team finished just outside the medals in 4th place. A lack of racing from most of our lads coming into this race probably cost us a position on the podium. Gary Scully performed well finishing in 3rd place overall, winning a bronze medal for the club. The rest of the team was as follows: Keith Butler 16th, David Sheehan 17th, Andy Mcloughlin 21st, Barry Creamer 60th, Eddie O’Meara 81st.
    • Next up in running: County Intermediate Feb 16th. County Masters March 2nd
  • Ballinrobe Duathlon: Will Rymer was representing the club in this duathlon. Will finished in 161st on what proved to be a very tough day for racing. Most of us would have just stayed in our beds!
