National Youth Cyclo Cross Championships Sunday 19th Feb 2017

1aDespite the recent tragedy to hit Orwell Wheelers when club member Tonya McEvoy was tragically killed when on a training spin, the club are proud to host the National Youth Cyclo Cross Championships this Sunday. The webteam at Ulster Cycling News would like to offer its sincere condolences to the club on the death of Tonya McAvoy. We also send our deepest condolences to her family - her parents Pat and Brian, her brothers Brian and Keith and sister Ciara. We remember also her friends and close clubmates, and we are thinking of  those who were with her at the time of the accident.
