We don’t have many town centre criterium’s left in the north of Ireland to enjoy…last evening (Frid 13th May) we got the first of the season in Banbridge, after a 3-year absence with some of Ireland’s finest at the start line! It came to sprints in both races…Local continental-pro Matthew Teggart (Wiv-SunGod GB) and in the A3 race Noel Doyle (TVR) both had their work cut-out, but got the upperhand!!
