One-two for Cuchulainn club in IVCA League
Published 16/08/2014 | 00:00
CUCHULAINN's rich vein of form in the IVCA League continued recently with Jimmy Flynn taking the win the most recent round of the league.
Jimmy was part of a 3-man group that escaped from the main field, which included clubmate Brendan Dunne. Once the break had established an insurmountable lead, Jimmy and Brendan started to attack their third breakaway companion, with Jimmy eventually managing to solo his way to the victory. With his teammate up the road, Brendan was given a free ride to the line, where he took second place to give the club a solid one-two in the race.
The Leinster Underage Championships were held on Sunday last in the County Meath town of Kilmessan. Cuchulainn were once again in the medals with two bronze for Conor McKeown in the under 14s and Aaron Trainer in the under 12s. Conor is also fresh off a win in the most recent round of the FPM Accountants Summer Cycling League. Conor, riding in Group 1, managed to hold everyone else off to take the win ahead of Alan Bingham.
With just one round left in the league Trevor Kane has a 3-point lead over Stamullen's Gary Gorman. However with Trevor on holidays and due to miss the last round Gorman could take victory assuming he finishes 6th or higher in the final event. After the summer league finishes all eyes will turn to the Leinster & Louth Hill Climb Championships.
