Mountnugent Grand Prix

Mountnugent, August 7, 2002

By Simon Whelan

In-form Earl of Desmond duo Kieran McMahon and Paul Griffin made the long trip from Tralee worthwhile last night when taking first and fifth places respectively in the Mountnugent Grand Prix. In front of a big crowd in rain soaked Mounnugent, the race was held over ten laps of an undulating four mile circuit.

George Devin of Drogheda Wheelers claimed three primes before the scratch group of senior A's got up to the front on lap five. From here, McMahon went clear with Stephen O'Sullivan and this duo were soon joined by Fintan McCormack of Newbridge Cutlery. With the bunch disintegrating in the rain and under the pressure of a hard chase, this trio contested the final sprint about thirty seconds ahead of the main field. Simon Whelan (McNally Swords CC) took the sprint for fourth from Paul Griffin and promoting club Navan Avonmore's Robert Whelan.
