King of the Mountains TT

Freezing cold, windy, sunny and a snow shower – just another regular Sunday morning in Wicklow.  Today, Sunday 23 March was a tough, demanding route, the penultimate T3 Winter series race.  Unsurprisingly Mark Doyle, starting from the back, had overtaken everyone before the start of the run.  He’s going to have a great season in 2014. Doug Veale wins the Good Samaritan prize for stopping to help Mark change a puncture; Eddie “Frostbite” O’Reilly cycled and then took the run timings again.  

Cahir had a storming run up and down Kippure.  Luke Hickey, a recent convert from rugby, showed great stamina and perseverance and hopefully hasn’t decided to go straight back to rugby.  Kevin, Dave McGrath and Jenny (the blanket hogger) came along for coffee but get no points!  Pictured right is the first of Eddie’s six slices of toast!TT results can be downloaded here.
