Another superb ride from Drogheda Wheelers man Niall Craven saw him take maximum points to extend his lead at the top of the table.

Second place for George in Dunsany

Drogheda Wheelers rider George Devin produced another fine performance to take second place in the Dunsany GP A4 race. On a fast but rolling circuit, George was well placed throughout, winning the bunch sprint and narrowly failing to catch Mark Holland (Orwell Wheelers) who attacked in the last few kilometres. The result will see George progress to the A3 ranks, the second Drogheda rider to do so this season, joining Dermot Healy who had two podium finishes earlier in the year.

The A3 event was won by Sean Moore of Barrow Wheelers.
