Club 20-mile Handicap Road Race Gleno Wednesday 11th April 2018.
Rhys McKendry wins opening club race of new season after sprinting clear from an eleven rider bunch with ¼ mile remaining. It was midway through the 20 lap race Rhys had his first break away and managed to hold off the bunch for three laps.
Fresh from a superb run in the Tour of the North Gary McCullough led the bunch in for 2nd followed by Mike Boal in 3rd and young under 16 Chris Donald taking a superb 4th place ahead of Iron Man Danny Hylands and the impressive Stephen Harkens both making come backs after a few years (5th and 6th). Young under 16 Johnnie McAuley rode very well taking 7th and Meta Johnston showed good form taking 8th ahead of Stephen Millar making a return after a lay off (9th). Peter Bingham in his first Madigan club race rode strongly to finish 10th and Bill John Johnston showed good form finishing at the tail end of the bunch in 11th.
It was a hard nights racing for all, and good to see the new members going so well.
Many thanks to the Marshals Steven Stewart, Ken Brewster, Albert Douglas, Stephen Farr and Jeremy Martin. Thanks also to Ronnie on the line. DR.
