Paddy Flanagan Memorial Race

Kildare, June 28, 2002

Power Warms Up With Kildare Win

By Shane Stokes

Ciarán Power confirmed his status as principal challenger to reigning national road race champion David McCann by winning his final warm up race, the Paddy Flanagan Memorial on Friday in Kildare. The 2002 FBD Milk Rás winner went clear in the final ten laps with a small group of riders and easily took the finishing sprint ahead of last year's winner Tim Cassidy (Cycleways Lee Strand) and Stamullen M. Donnelly's Craig Sweetman.

'Ciarán was very impressive', said fifth-placed Laurence Roche afterwards. 'He was just tapping through easily in the break and didn't have to push himself hard at all. I had a go inside the last kilometre but the group got back up to me, and Ciarán flew by in the sprint and won easily.'
