We are sorry that we were unable to bring you regular updates on this website for the Mizen to Malin challenge, but it was such a long and tough weekend that sleep was all that any of us wanted. We will have a full report online later today, but first we better update everyone on what else is happening in the club……..
Training: the Mizen to Malin challenge might be over but don’t give up on your training just yet. Club training will be continuing for the next few weeks. Typically numbers start to dwindle a little at this time of year but it is important not to disappear from the radar completely. When next year’s training resumes in October you don’t want to have two full months of inactivity to deal with!
Nenagh Summer League: resumes once again this Thursday at 7:00pm.
Weekend Cycling: there is no need for the club to be putting in huge mileage now. Cycle start times will return to 9:00am on Saturdays and Sundays. The focus will be on quality more than quantity.
Junior Cycling: official training is now finished for the summer. The club would like to congratulate all our junior members on putting in a great year of training. The club would also like to thank our senior members that helped out with training throughout the year. Junior training will resume in October. Our juniors are always more than welcome to join in with the senior cycles for the next few weeks.
King of the Hill Triathlon, Kinsale: Barry Creamer and Eoin O’Connor took on this tough hilly triathlon down in Cork on Saturday. Barry finished in 151st in a time of 1:33. Eoin finished in 197th in a time of 1:39. Great stuff.
I-Tri Triathlon: congrats to Bill O’Brien, Greg Starr and John Ryan who all competed in this sprint distance race in Ennis on Saturday. Also racing was Nenagh CC member Ronan Costelloe.
Tuam: Brian O’Neill made a welcome return to racing up in Tuam on Sunday. Brian has been very unlucky in races all year and should have gained promotion to the A3 ranks a long time ago. Unfortunately, his unlucky streak might be continuing on his return. Brian needed a 7th place finish in the race to gain promotion and after a fine race he managed to do just that. However, Cycling Ireland have him down as 8th which leaves him 1 point short of promotion. The issue is being looked into so fingers crossed that his luck changes!!
