Women's Racing

Orwell women have a growing presence in racing in the Dublin area and around the country, achieving and exceeding their goals at many different levels.

Scott-Orwell’s Lara Gillespie has had an amazing season on the Cyclocross bike this winter. Not only did she win the Women’s National Cyclocross Championships she then represented Ireland at the World Championships!  We caught up with her (which is pretty tough to do) and managed to convince her to give us the inside scoop on her winter. Huge thanks to Lara for fitting in time to write this for us.
