Easton Best In Sean Nolan Meath GP

Report courtesy of Shane Stokes

Denis Easton ( showed his finishing speed at the end of the latest round of the Classic League, the Sean Nolan Meath G.P, outsprinting a number of riders including Stamullen M. Donnelly’s Craig Sweetman (2nd) and Usher IRC’s Paul Healion (3rd). Promising first year senior Tim Cassidy (Cycleways Lee Strand) was fourth.

The start of the rain-lashed event had been changed to a later time due to Ireland’s World Cup match with Spain but this was further deferred when the contest went to a penalty shoot-out, resulting in a shortened race. Just two miles after the start Philip Cassidy (Cycleways Lee Strand), Martin O’Loughlin (Cidona Carrick Wheelers) and Stephen O’Sullivan (unattached) raced ahead of the drenched main bunch and opened up a solid lead, but the move lost some of its impetus when O’Sullivan later punctured. With 15 miles remaining in the race 8 other riders bridged across to the two leaders and combined to open up a minute’s lead over the main bunch, ensuring the group finish which resulted in Easton’s triumph.
