GoreyCC take the spoils at Slipstream league week 4

It was another great week for GoreyCC in the Wexford league with wins on Wednesday and Thursday.

First up was Tom Purcell, winning the Novice race in round 5 of SlaneyCC’s Davidstown league on Wednesday evening after sprinting clear of the rest of the field (watch the video: https://youtu.be/y6Vj8moXVCU). A hat tip to Gerry and Greg also for getting placed, well done all.

  3. Robert Webster – Slaney CC
  4. Gerry Hanratty – Gorey CC
  5. Brian Sugrue – SERC

Thursday evening was round 4 of Slipstream’s league on the usual Inch circuit. The A3/A2/A1 saw a very early breakaway develop, but Joe Christian made the good decision to bridge across quickly as the break stayed away for the rest of the race. By all accounts, the pace of the breakaway was “fierce”. At the finish he out sprinted all by an impressive margin to take the win.

The A4’s were up next and Brendan Dunne made it 2 in a row as he battled a very strong, on form SERC contingent and put in a powerful sprint finish to take the win in the A4 league race. He was run all the way to the line by SERC’s Ciaran Furlong in 2nd.
