Ballymena Road Club hosted the Wallace Caldwell Memorial Race. The format was somewhat different from previous years with the race being run on a closed circuit based in Randalstown.
It didn’t take long for the A1/A2 riders to show their caliber as a small group of 15 riders broke away from the bunch the first time up the hill. This gap grew with each lap with a few of the riders in the break being dropped as the laps went on.
The break then split again into 3 smaller groups and on the final time up the climb, Darnell Moore and Lindsay Watson attacked to get a small gap on the other riders in the break. They maintained their gap to the finish for a 2 up sprint with Darnell coming home the victor and taking home the Wallace Caldwell Memorial Cup.
Well done Darnell ???
