Our racing members have had a busy last few weeks. In early May Dara McKenna and Declan McEntee travelled to Galloway, Scotland to compete in a 111km gravel race called The Gralloch. The gruelling race takes place in Galloway Forest Park. With approx. 1500 entrants it is a huge field with many categories. Declan came in approx. 30mins ahead of Dara and only just missed qualifying for the gravel world championships. The following week “Dublin” Dave Rielly rode another round of the Mondello series and snatched the 1st unplaced A3. That weekend he travelled to Robinstown, Co Meath for the scratch race. It was a fast paced affair with the visiting Chinese team, over for the Ras, dropping the hammer and placing huge pressure on the local riders. Still a good days racing. Local lad and former Emyvale rider James McKenny had an exciting, but gruelling experience riding the 2024 Ras. He managed to get a place with Moynalty Cycling Club’s team. The 5 day International stage race is Ireland’s premier bike race. Despite some punctures and crashes, James finished the event and can proudly wear his finishers medal as a “man of the Ras”. On Sunday 26th May Declan McEntee travelled to the Dunloy GP. It was a fast paced race, with no joy for Declan, but he came home safely in the bunch. Barry Cassidy and Dara McKenna raced their final midweek race in the Cuchulainn CCC race league. It was a well run race series taking place on midweek evenings over 6 weeks. Finally, last Sunday Declan “Dynamo” McEntee travelled to Navan for the Sean Nolan Meath GP. This was also round 3 of the National Road Series. Conditions were tricky with plenty of rain, but this didn’t hold back Dynamo, who fought his way to a hard earned 3rd place in the A3 race for some prize money and some more points. Dates for the diary: Friday June 14th 7pm Glasough - Youth races Sunday June 16th St Mellans GAA - Tour Of Monaghan Sunday December 15th - Annual Hillclimb
