25/07/2013 NI ’25’ Championships.

Gold For McIntyre, Curran , Lowry, Laverty and Phoenix in NI 25 Champs.

Thunder storms with heavy rain rattled through the course 90-minutes prior to the start but thankfully the storm had cleared leaving clear blue sky behind, which was just reward to the 54 Riders (some Madigan riders riding in a club event within the race) who took the chance to attend in the hope it would pass-over. A clear winner on the night was Greg Swinand from South Africa now based in Dublin riding for Usher Irish Road.  Pushing a big gear it was plain to see the speed he was generating. Sadly due to him not being a resident in Ulster he does not medal in this event.  Greg knew this prior to him making the long trip but he wanted to give Woodgreen a go regardless.  At least he got his fuel money back in prize money.

Provisional medal standings:  Sean McIntyre of Orchard Wheelers rode superbly to take the N.I. Senior Gold medal. Bryan McKinney of Duffin Transport takes the Senior Silver and Mike Millar of Phoenix C.C. takes Senior Bronze.

Liam Curran of Curran Racing takes Veteran Gold.  Des Woods of Newry Wheelers take Veteran Silver.  Darren Lynas of West Down Wheelers takes Veteran Bronze.

Judith Lowry of Invictus takes Women Gold.  Laura Maxwell of Roe Valley CC takes WomenSilver.  Gillian Orr of North Down CC takes Women's Bronze.

Stuart Laverty of Ballymoney CC takes the Junior Gold medal. Harry McComb of East Tyrone CC takes the Junior Silver medal.

Team medals go to Phoenix C.C. Mike Millar, Christian Nachtigal, and John Smyth. Please note all results are provisional at this time!

Many thanks to all the Riders, Time Keepers, and to all the Madigan members who helped on the night.
