Aiken in Top Form at Larne

1-2Team Madigan promoted Round 6 of the Ulster Cyclocross Series on Sunday. Despite the fact that some of the course had been vandalised the hardworking crew at Team Madigan had everything up an running in time for the feast of racing events. There was the usual Youth racing to start with and numbers here seem to be increasing all the time with girls participation well increased.

In the Main Senior men's race Roger Aiken was once again in top form taking the number one spot on the podium. Graham Boyd of Xmtb McConvey Cycles wasn't far behind him with Dromara's Barry Kellett taking the final podium position. In the women's race Trudy Brown of VC Glendale was victorious over Gill Smith of Phoenix CC and Emma Casey of Trail Demons CC.


Henry O'Neill of Newry Wheelers CC took the win in the B Cyclocross event followed in by Edward Kearney of Phoenix CC and Edward Shannon of Velo Club Mourne. These three will no longer be eligible for the B race following this result.

Gary Thompson  (Maryland Wheelers), Dean Lockhart (Carn Wheelers) and Gavin Thompson of Maryland Wheelers filled the podium positions in the MTB Support race while Angie Smyth (Apollo CT),
Alison McMullan (North Down CC) and Nicola Nelson (Apollo CT) took the top positions in the women's support race.


Many thanks to all at Team Madigan for an excellent day's racing. Thanks to Commissaires Martin Grimley and Lisa Millar.
