John McCormack Memorial

June 9, 2002

Hedderman takes John McCormack Memorial

By Shane Stokes

The impressive Cycleways Lee Strand team added yet another win to their 2002 tally today when Adrian Hedderman emerged best at the end of the 44 mile John McCormack Memorial in Batterstown.

The Limerick man was part of a six man breakaway group which was formed after Tom Hughes (Stamullen M. Donnelly), Tim Ahern (UCD) and Tim Cassidy (Cycleways Lee Strand) went clear at the 25 mile mark. Hedderman, Dave Smith (Fig Roll Naas) and Hillcrest's Sean Farrell bridged across to these three and the six leading riders combined well to open out a lead of one minute and ten seconds by the finish.

Here Hedderman showed his finishing kick to pip Smyth and Hughes for the win, showing he has come into good form after last month's FBD Milk Rás.
