Women's Racing

Orwell women have a growing presence in racing in the Dublin area and around the country, achieving and exceeding their goals at many different levels.

The last evening of Spring was a pleasant one for round 4 of the Wheelworx Orwell Ladies Crit League, with some dramatic racing across both categories. Bray Wheeler's Michelle Carter and Sandra Fitzgerald of Garda CC took victory on the line.

Martina Cronin and Muirna Walsh took the wins in round two of the Wheelworx Orwell Ladies' Crit League in Sandyford on Tuesday night, while Sandra Fitzgerald did enough to retain the leader's Jersey.

Tonight is the first crit of the Wheelworx Orwell Ladies' League, and Sandra Fitzgerald holds the leader's jersey after last week's TT. Will she still be wearing it after tonight's crit in Sandyford? And as the season progresses, there's plenty more events for racing women...

Two of Orwell's finest have been picked to compete for Leinster in the Bedford 3 Day. Charlotte MacDonald and Rachel Kaye Mellor will race as part of a provincial six-woman team in the five stage race in May.

The Orwell women finished off last season in style, when great teamwork helped Trish Buckley clinch the Costa Classic, and they're looking to continue in the same winning fashion! Click below for a message from women's racing rep, Mags Donnelly.

Update: meeting is happening next Tuesday 12th at 7pm in Uncle Tom's Cabin on the Dundrum Road.
