Light­ning Liam takes time trial hon­ours

The Argus - - SPORT -

DUNDALK’S Cuchu­lainn Cy­cling Club closed out 2018 with the an­nual New Year’s Eve Time Trial.

The route was 14.1km out and back from Do­rian’s Pub to Ardee. This route has been in use for the last four edi­tions and the rid­ers greatly ap­pre­ci­ated the resur­fac­ing work that had been car­ried out on about 75% of the course.

First down the start ramp was Ardee Cy­cling Club’s Cathal McCabe, who was also the youngest par­tic­i­pant in the event.

He was fol­lowed by Rhi­an­non Dolan, an­other un­der 12 cy­clist and both de­liv­ered out­stand­ing per­for­mances.

In to­tal close to 40 cy­clists signed on for the event with both Car­rick­macross and Ca­van Rac­ing mem­bers fea­tur­ing heav­ily on the start list.

The quick­est time on the day was set by Cuh­cu­liann’s Liam Dolan, a two-time win­ner of the event in the past. Liam set a time of 18:39, 57 sec­onds quicker than Ro­nan Grimes from Dublin’s Or­well Wheel­ers.

The podium was com­pleted by Ardee Cy­cling Club’s To­mas McCabe, who re­turned in 20:08.

First Lady home was Claire Lud­low, who is also a mem­ber of the very strong Ardee Cy­cling Club.

Af­ter­wards the cy­clists re­tired to Byrne’s Pub in Castle­belling­ham for the prize-giv­ing.

Pic­tured at the Cuchu­lainn CC NYE time­trail pre­sen­ta­tion are Ray Redi­gan (Bike Sta­tion), win­ner Liam Dolan win­ner with his daugh­ter Lucy and Sé We­ston (club chair­man).
