Open Racing

Orwell are very active on the national scene - see all the results and reports from open races here.

After the juniors dominated last weekend, this time it was the turn of the A4s in the limelight! The weather was not kind to riders in any race, leaving them muddy and wet on Saturday, while Sunday was cold and windy in exposed sections. But the A4s proved themselves more than capable of rising to the challenge.

It was a weekend of varying fortunes on the race scene for DTC Orwell Wheelers, with a plethora of placings marred by a couple of crashes. Read on for more information...

Eric Downey’s first victory against A1 opposition in Saturday's Mick Lally Memorial capped an excellent weekend of results gathering by Orwell’s highly motivated racing battalion as the 2013 season got under way in earnest.

The 2013 racing season opened today in Monasterevin with the very well attended Ned Flanagan, organised by Newbridge CC. Orwell riders were out in force, with Eric Downey grabbing an unplaced prize.
