Youth Reports

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

On Sunday September 20th the younger cyclists in Orwell start back into their cycling sessions and they are welcoming new members with open arms. The 2 hour sessions on Sunday are open to ages 6-18, boys and girls and bikes of all shapes and sizes.

The youngsters got the jump on the adults this week when they started back for winter training in Corkagh Park as part of the newly restarted youth sessions. Read how they got on below!

While the Seniors are having a very strong season our underage riders are keeping pace and very often setting the bar high early in the day.

The youth riders of Orwell have been ripping it up again, with Daisy O'Shea and Andrew Ryan in action in Bohermeen, Uisneach Sheridan competing in Wexford, and Seán Murnane taking part in another stage race in Kanturk on top of Bohermeen.

Last weekend in Drogheda, while the seniors only faced one-day races, the youth of Orwell were fighting it out in the Rás na nÓg. Promoted by Drogheda Wheelers, it's a rare opportunity for the underage riders to experience a full-blown stage race. Orwell had a representative in each category in the shape of Seán Murnane, Uisneach Sheridan and Andrew Ryan, who was riding with the Leinster team.
