The four provinces of CI met in Coalisland (Mid Ulster) for 3 Irish qualifying selection races for youth (Under 12-14-16)
What a great bunch …always smiling this band of girls
Under 12 ready to go

The Cycling Ireland youth commission awarded promoting club Island Wheelers with qualifying status in the selection process for Irish teams. The PJ Logan event and course was used to test the youth riders in the underage categories and didn’t disappoint. A sea of colours greeted us in the vicinity of Dungannon (Coalisland) for an early start to get the youngsters on the road…The under 12 had an easier finish as to young to tackle the more demanding finish at the top of the hill used for the other races including the main feature races in the afternoon. They came from all corners of the Island as far as Cork, Mayo, Sligo, Dublin, Navan, Donegal, Waterford, Newcastle West and local Ulster youngsters. Kids who belong to sporting clubs have an edge in growing up and friendships get established who which will last for life in many cases…great job Island Wheelers and thanks for bringing such events to us…it is wildly appreciated by the whole Ulster fraternity and our neighbours down South.

A 5 hour drive each way…my admiration to their parents and supporters for such commitment
