Neil wins first race

Neil wins first race at Currow in county Kerry. Delighted of course that I am to say that he rode a brilliant race. Seven laps of a 6.5KM circuit and at the end of lap two going up the drag to the finish line he decided to go for a break. He fully expected the lads to catch him up again but he got away with it. Five laps alone with his break fluctuating between 45 and 15 seconds. At the finish line I guess he had 20 seconds. Some of the lads in Kanturk cycling club did a good job of looking after the bunch which certainly helped him to retain his lead. DELIGHTED… 45KM Race at Average of 37KMH
