North Tipp Wheelers – Point Sprint Race – May 2009
The Points Sprint Race which should have been run on 7th May 2009 had to be rescheduled because of bad weather and was finally completed on Thursday 28th May in perfect weather conditions. It was warm, dry sunny and only a little breezy. A good strong group signed on and the race was held between the roundabout near Donal Ryan’s Showrooms and the new roundabout at the bottom of the bypass – a round circuit of 2 miles and 10 laps completed with a sprint on each one. Brendan Delaney of the Triathlon Club won 2 as did Joe Cantwell, another triathlete but also a member of North Tipperary Wheelers. But it was Kevin Sherlock (another dual member) who shone on the night taking 5 of the 10 sprints plus placings in another 2. So well done Kevin!
