Youth Reports

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

Orwell Wheelers entered a team for the Youth Tour of Scotland, one of the most exciting youth racing events going, this year. While our boys were disappointed not to get an entry, we did send a strong team of four girls over to Perth: Áine Reilly, Rhiannon Dolan, Mya Doocey and Hannah Hayes.

Here's what happened ... thanks to Áine for such a detailed and interesting report: plenty to learn about riding as part of a team, rather than just for yourself, in this one!

For 17 weeks over the summer, Monday Nights @ Corkagh has been a fixture on the calendar. Started by Dave Mc 4 years ago, it has become a stepping stone for many into cycling and into racing. For others it has been a key part of their training programme.  For others is just a good laugh and a bit of exercise on a warm summers evening. Read on for a round up of the 2019 series....

2019 saw Scott-Orwell Wheelers return to Strathallan with two teams in the Youth Tour of Scotland, a tough 3 day - 4 stage race. As always they pulled together as a team both on and off the bike and once again they have come together to give us a flavour of their weekend away.  Chapeau guys!

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....
