Youth Reports

We have a strong and growing contingent of youth and junior riders, find out more about them at the main youth page.

Winter 2018 was a very busy and successful season for our young Cyclocross racers. Every weekend results came flooding in - medals, cups and photos of big beaming smiles! Luca, Áine and Katie were convinced to write a round up of the season for us - it's full of ups & downs, mud, sweat but no tears.........

The Errigal International Youth Tour is one of the biggest events on the youth calendar. It's a tough 3 days with 4 stages, including a TT, two road races and criterium with some very testing climbs!  Scott Orwell Wheelers was well represented at the race and huge thanks to the Under 11/12 Boys team for putting together a race report for us....

Ras na nÓg is one of the premier stage races for youths in the country. Over the last number of years it has served as a rite of passage for many of our younger riders, with Darragh Long, Rachael Kaye Mellor, Naoise & Fionn Sheridan and Sean Murnane among the many who have used it as a springboard to subsequent junior and senior success. Read on to see how the 2018 team got on..

2018 saw Scott-Orwell Wheelers enter two teams in the Youth Tour of Scotland, a tough 3 day - 4 stage race. Reports came back about their great team work over the weekend and in that spirit they have pooled together to write a race report for us. Chapeau guys!

 

The days are getting longer and Easter is just around the corner. Since last September our youths have been working on their cycling skills from their winter base at Corkagh Park. As Spring turns to Summer we preview what they will be getting up to this season.
