Open Racing

Orwell are very active on the national scene - see all the results and reports from open races here.

Great results for Orwell keep coming in! This week it was time for the National Series round 5 in Currow, Co Kerry (130km in 22 degree heat), and the Bob Crilly Classic near Belfast. 

From kids (and adults!) in Limerick to mountain biking in Killarney and the fourth round of the National Series in Navan, it was a huge weekend for Orwell Wheelers racers.

A very strong weekend for Orwell racers, with trophis, placings and jerseys to go around. Results below from Sean Lynch, Ken Duff and Women's Intermediate League.

Some very strong Orwell performances and lots of learning at the Gorey Three Day this weekend, and lots of experience gained by our (mainly) young squad. With four stages over three days and almost 150 riders, Gorey is a fantastic stage race for A2, A3 and Junior riders, as well as having a strong ladies field.

The second round of the National Series was the Des Hanlon Memorial in Carlow. Dry and warm, with very little wind, that didn't mean it was wasy, with hills right from the start making the racing hard. Two very strong performances from Orwell riders left one with a series leader's jersey ahead of the pause for the big Easter stage races.
