December 2010 Update

Hello All,
I have posted all the relevant forms needed for membership renewal on the 'Contact' section of this website and all options of how to do this are listed on that page.

Obviously  our track has been repaired to our satisfaction...... just in time for the snow!  We will be back training on the track in January once this artic weather passes. In the interim I have e-mailed all members Terry Cromer's 'Training Update No 2' which covers what you should be doing this time of year with particular reference to training indoors. If anyone hasn't received this, please e-mail me and I will send it on to you.

We would hope to be in our  our new club house which we share with the local football club come January and that will increase our bad weather options. Club sign on day Jan 20th (details closer to date) and I intend to organise a pre season social around mid  February or sooner.

Sunday road training has been going well with a committed and regular group doing the 3 hour spins. Three of our riders Keith Meghan, Greg Campbell and myself have been regulars at the Cyclo races.

I also was happy to accept our National Gold Medals on behalf of our Vets Omnium Champion and our Team Sprint, while Eoin Mullen was present at the Cycling Ireland dinner to accept his Gold and Silver in person. It was gratifying to see how well the track was represented at that dinner and indeed even to see that road medals also went to riders with strong track pedigree.  

Recently also we had four of our rising stars at the development camp in Chaleville and we would hope to go to the follow up camp in Omagh in February.

On the coaching side we saw Andrea & Sean complete a Foundation Road Coaching course and Alec complete Level 1. Three more riders will partake in the weather rescheduled Lev 1 in February. Also we are presently pulling together the much awaited Foundation Track Course which will be presented by 'Track Guru'  Mark Kiely. We then hope to organise a higher level track coaching course.

Best Wishes to all over the Festive Season

Go Back
