Annaclone was the venue for the eagerly anticipated Travers Engineering GP first road race of the season. Banbridge Cycling Club hosted over 200 cyclists from across the country on the challenging 8 mile circuit. Shimna Wheelers club members Lavelle Grant and Kieran Connolly lined up for their first A4 race while Alex McMath returned for his second season. Weather conditions were poor with driving wind and rain making racing difficult. The lads did themselves proud with Kieran coming in with the group sprint finish and Lavelle not far behind. On Sunday, Luke travelled to the Phoenix GP – A3 Race, nothing got away all day and it came down to a bunch sprint in the end with Luke finishing in the main bunch. A good start for the Shimna men, with the John Haldane Memorial up next on Sunday morning on the Newry-Warrenpoint Carriageway. All support welcome!!
