Alan Bingham try to shake off Mark Downey

Plenty of action in the race with early moves from Kenny Bagnall and Micheal Haven before the scratch group got up. Then Mc crystal, Barry McKenna, Garreth O’ Neill, and Mark mc Kinley got in a move which was brought back by the foreign legion (Mark Downey, Matthew Taggert, and Darnell Moore) Few more small groups clipped off the front until the last entrance to Hilltown where Gareth o Neill and Drew Mc Kinley clipped off. Got a gap of approx 30 secs with Gareth O’ Neill doing big turns. Banbridge CC riders got organised and pulled the escape back. Mark mc Kinley went early on the uphill sprint but the power of the sprinters was too much with the inform John Buller taking the Eddie Crory Cup
