2014 Team Events

September 3, 2014

Clean Sweep!!

Sundrive Track Team retained the Men’s title despite the absence of Eoin Mullen who was recovering from a crash in the Keirin at the U23 Europeans where he secured a bronze in the Sprint.  Nothing too serious, just a dead leg and he should be recovered by the Senior C/ship at the end of the month. The experience of Keith Meghan, together Hugo Brennan and Eamonn Byrne was enough to secure the win. Indeed Keith Meghan was a late call into the team as he has been working on Team Pursuit this season. Keith has been a member of every winning  Sundrive Team Sprint team since the inaugural event.  Keith was also a member of the Sundrive Team Pursuit squad who narrowly deposed the Kilcullen team who have been champions for the past 3 years.  There was a huge body of work done in preparation for this event and full credit to Keith, Gwyn, Matt and Murt for a superb team performance.

In the Women’s Team Sprint Susie Mitchell and Sarah Gunn again retained their title and again bettered their record, but the gaps to the other teams are narrowing! Aine & Cliona were unfortunate to suffer a false start and then a foot pull on the rerun to deny them silver, but a fine debut performance from Kayleigh Gibbons and Michelle Mulen secured the bronze. In the Keirin, Tean Sprint teammates Susie & Sarah were dominant securing Gold and Silver.   The men’s Keirin was finished a semi final stage with Eamonn, Hugo and Mark Kiely securing places  for the next stage to be completed at the senior nationals
