Early start for all of us, especially for the lads who traveled from as far as Dublin and Donegal for a race who has a sting in his tail…The long drag up the Rostrevor road coming from Hilltown. The Hill top finish just made this race special, after some hard laps prior to the beast of a drag. We had a full menu of racing with the A1-A2 handicap race first on the road to tackle 5 times the circuit of 12miles before turning to the climb to the finish. It was, in the end, a matter who still had a tiger in the tank as the race once the handicap was overcome split in many pieces. They went with 2 to the line in the end and the very experienced Lindsay Watson showed why he is top 3 in the Irish Rankings despite the very talented Espoir Donal Shearer (Phoenix CC) asking some questions, but just not strong enough in the end. Donal has been all season up front, has many podiums but just not the killer instinct yet required to beat a cycling locomotive called Watson, but then not many top riders can beat the powerhouse man on a good day!! Richard Maybin from Ballymoney RC was 3th and Master Irish Champ Des Woods (Newry Wheelers) a very credible 4th.
