CYCLING | Anne conquers Castlewellan to win Ulster Mountain Bike Championship

Countdown is on to ‘Da Cooley Thriller’ on August 12th

Cuchulainn Cycling Club’s Anne Duffy in action at the Ulster MTB Championships

Cuchulainn Cycling Club’s Anne Duffy capped an incredible season by winning the Ulster Cross Country Mountain Bike Championships in Castlewellan Forest Park on Sunday last.

Despite riding for a Leinster-based club, Anne qualifies to compete in Ulster as she lives close to Newry and she dominated from start to finish.

Elsewhere, the club also picked up a medal, as Declan McCabe claimed the silver in the Masters 50 race.

Next up for the mountain bikers is the classic event ‘Da Cooley Thriller’ hosted by Cuchulainn Cycling Club.

The event, which takes place on August 12th, will take in some of Cooley’s finest scenery and see the senior riders tackle 52km of off road tracks and trails over the mountains.

Bike Station Summer Cycling League

Meanwhile, The Bike Station Summer Cycling League is reaching its final rounds and defending champion Alan Bingham has been in dominant form of late, taking a number of wins.

He currently sits top of the leaderboard with nine points to spare over Jamie O’Hare.

The winner will definitely come from one of these two riders as third placed John Loane is a further 20 points behind. Ardee’s Johanna Rogan is the leading lady.
