Farrell from Kilcullen took her first win in the Women’s Boot Inn
League on Aug 3rd
sprinted home ahead of ‘Lucan C.R.C’s
ine Macey, after the two riders went clear of their limit group
companions, with the Scratch group closing in with a Lap to go.
ine had started the last lap with Kathy Cullinan (Stamullen) and Leanne
McDarby (Bagel Bar), all working hard together. The
remainder of the Limit group – Fiona Redmond(Bray),and Aideen Collard
(Orwell) were slightly off the pace but still in contention.
Foley (Swords) – looked the most likely to catch the riders ahead. She
had started three minutes behind the Limit group, and had broken clear
of Deb Gordon (DWCC) Loraine Crean (Pir) and Eileen O’Sullivan(
), and had been chasing hard on her own since the first lap.
race behind was taking a familiar shape, Rose Leith(Sorrento) and
Jean O’Connor (UCD) were finding it hard to contend with attacks from
Louise Harliwich (Lucan), but the three riders were caught by the fast
riding scratch group which was now down to Orla Hendron (Orwell), Róisín
Kennedy (IRC) and Gillian McDarby (Bagel Bar).
ine Macey(Lucan) was unable to match the fast
Pedalling Chloe Farrell in the sprint for the line but was rewarded for
her long efforts at the front with an excellent second place.
McDarby(Bagel Bar) followed close behind for third, and Harliwich won a
three up sprint with Kennedy and Hendron to take fourth.
