Open Racing

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

A very strong weekend for Orwell racers, with trophis, placings and jerseys to go around. Results below from Sean Lynch, Ken Duff and Women's Intermediate League.

Some very strong Orwell performances and lots of learning at the Gorey Three Day this weekend, and lots of experience gained by our (mainly) young squad. With four stages over three days and almost 150 riders, Gorey is a fantastic stage race for A2, A3 and Junior riders, as well as having a strong ladies field.

The second round of the National Series was the Des Hanlon Memorial in Carlow. Dry and warm, with very little wind, that didn't mean it was wasy, with hills right from the start making the racing hard. Two very strong performances from Orwell riders left one with a series leader's jersey ahead of the pause for the big Easter stage races.

Round one of the 2023 National Series took place on Sunday 26 March in Blarney. While there was no rain, there was enough wind to add to what was already a challenging course.

Run over a tough 140km circuit, Orwell had 3 riders in the A1/A2/Junior race, while Yvonne Doran flew our colours in the 90km Women's race. Read the full article to see how the race panned out: without giving too many spoilers, there were some great results!

Orwell Juniors Patrick O'Sullivan and Killian O'Brien featured at the Boyne GP, with Yvonne Doran and Cahir O'Higgins also earning results this weekend.
