Youth Reports

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

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.

A couple of great results from the younger ranks in the last few weeks - Conor Murnane earned the unplaced Junior prize in Clonard two weeks ago, followed by Ciarán Keogh's fantastic 4ths in two rounds of the U16 MTB Blitz. Yesterday both Andrew Ryan and Sean Murnane featured in their respective races in the Des Hanlon!

The next CX date has a full set of youth races if you know anybody who'd like to take part, or perhaps you'd like to drop in on the way back from your Sunday spin to support riders - both young and old! Full details follow...

The 2014 Interclub Underage League wrapped up recently, with Orwell Youths still showing up for their first taste of racing. Late joiners included Alicia and Liam Coulcher, Evan and Luke Caddow, Max Latham, and Kevin Lahiff. They took part in one or both of the last two rounds, taking place on the tracks of Corkagh Park and Sundrive Road. Read on for all the details and results!

The youth have been racing prolifically over the last couple of weeks, with no less than nine of them in action in the Underage and Orwell leagues. Read on for all the details!
