Orwell has a small but dedicated group of track cyclists, who can frequently be seen at Sundrive Road.

About a third of the way through the Track Season we would like to bring you an update on how Orwell is getting on and give you some notice of upcoming events that may be of interest.

There was a great turnout for the recent track session organised by Dave Hendron, with some excellent coaching by Orla Hendron and Paddy Davis. Big thanks to them, hope everyone enjoyed themselves! A couple of photos below, thanks to Orla and Dave.

One set of results which fell through the cracks, but absolutely deserves to be highlighted and showcased are the recent Orwell performances at the Leinster Track Champs. Before heading off to the Worlds, Orla Hendron achieved double silver, but was outdone by Naoise Sheridan who won both silver and gold! Sean Murnane also featured, taking home double bronze! Full details below!

The National Junior Track Champs and Team and Keirin Champs took place in Sundrive Road last weekend, and three of Orwell's former champions came away with medals - Juniors Naoise Sheridan and Rachael Kaye-Mellor, and veteran Orla Hendron. Their haul was an impressive seven medals across five events and the Keirin, while the men's team were denied the podium in the sprint by a mere half second.

If you haven't seen the forum post, the very hard-working Jen Sheridan is looking for volunteers for this weekend's International Track GP in Sundrive Road. Please give a hand if you can! Click here!
