Gary Scully Second in Broadford

Broadford and Navan were last weekends venues for road racing, and with the season only a few weeks old, it was another succes story for the Visit Nenagh team. Gary Scully saw his dreams to win the Cycling Pursuits cup in Broadford dashed as he was outsprinted on the line by Cathal Moynihan (Tralee BC). Gary was part of strong leadgroup, that got away early in the race. He was accompanied by team mate Gary Mcdonald in the early stage of the race, but with the finish in sight on the hilly course , it was Gary scully who placed a blistering attack on the last climb of the day , and took the lead of the race. Only Cathal Moynihan was able to close the gap on the descend and took victory, with Gary Scully finishing second, Donal Harrington (Western Lakes CC) third.


In Navan a 120km route was set out for the senior team in the Cycleways Cup. The Visit Nenagh team presented the new signing Mehall Fitzgerald before the race. Mehall is a multiple National Road Race Champion and won stages in the an Post Rás before. He will complement the team for the remainder of the season. Simon Ryan (Visit Nenagh) was very active in the early stages of the Cycleways cup , but to no avail as Conor Murphy (Eurocycles) took the victory just before Damien Shaw (Aqua Blue). Mehall Fitzgerald took the bunch gallop and was the best finisher for the Visit Nenagh team in Navan. Next weekend racing takes place in Caherconlish, while the management team of the Visit Nenagh cycling project will be present on the Irish cycling show in Dublin on the 9th and 10th of March.
