No official club training today so you are free to do whatever you want!!
Saturday Cycle: weather conditions for tomorrow’s club cycle should be good so we hope to see decent numbers out on the bike. We need to get this training session back working well so try your best to be there. The route we are going to do is below. The start time as always is 8:30am from the pool. We would love to see some beginners at this cycle – we don’t expect you to do all of it. There will be multiple turn-off points where you can turn for home early. With the North Tipp Wheelers Tour of Lough Derg coming up soon (120km) and our own End of Year Cycle (160km) to prepare for, you really need to jump up on your bike and put the work in. Hope to see you there!
Don’t forget Lake swimming on Sunday at 6:00pm in Youghal.
It really is a very big weekend for this little club of ours:
- the Nenagh CC team start their An Post Rás adventure on Sunday. It is great to be able to enter a team into such a big race in our first year. The team in full are Gary Scully, Shane Scully, Simon Ryan, Alan Loftus and Damian Roche. Kevin Sherlock, Kenneth Kennedy and Peter Ryan make up the support team. The race will be passing through O’Briens Bridge and Birdhill (Tuesday at 1:00pm) for anyone that wants to cheer the lads on. Hopefully by taking part in the race this year we will help encourage our other members to aim higher and train for this next year. It will also be something for our juniors to target in the future. We would like to try to enter a team into this event annually, so if you have plans to do the Rás someday then we want you in our club.
- Our triathlon team will be represented at the top level of triathlon by young Darren Dunne in Weert, Netherlands. Darren received his official Irish kit yesterday and is raring to go. Darren will be competing in the individual European event (and Youth Olympic qualifier) on Saturday morning. He will then be part of the Irish triathlon relay team that will race on Sunday. Best of luck to Darren on his international triathlon debut. Seeing Darren representing his country should inspire our juniors to get out and train hard. Darren has got here through putting in lots and lots of hard work.
