Open Racing

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

A fantastic evening for Orwell Wheelers at the Leinster Hillclimb Championship -- three golds and a silver for the club on the night.

"This time last year I was in A4 travelling south hunting for points in Charleville. Fast forward 11 months I needed a first or second place to move up to A2.  After a recent crash and loss of form the season wasn’t going so well.  A lot depended on Kilmallock and the last couple of races". An epic read from Cahir O'Higgins on his recent win in Limerick - enjoy the ride!

It’s slightly unfortunate that the name has a slightly comical edge to it, because the Bogman 2-Day is definitely no joke! Not only is this one of the best stage races that I’ve taken part in this year due to the quality of the field, but every aspect of the race was first class. Definitely more top-man than bog-man. Michael Hanley heads west and lives to tell the tale!

Gaelforce West is a race that most people have heard about, and represents the “Old Lady” of Adventure Racing in Ireland. It’s a 6 Stage Point-To-Point race starting in the stunning Killary Fjord in Galway. This year Luke McMullan took on the challenge and came away smiling! Read his report of how the race was won... (warning - contains words such as "running" and other "non cycling" terms!!)

Last weekend a hardy bunch of 8 Scott Orwell Wheelers headed West to the National Championship Races in Sligo. We managed to convince (cajole) a few of them into writing a report from each of their perspectives. It makes for great reading! Well done and thanks to all
