All Cables Womens League

May 8, 2002

By Tommy Campbell, Irish Independent, Evening Herald, Sunday Independent
The All Cables women's league got off to a great start at the Boot Inn with a nail biting finish at the end of the 15-mile handicap race. Valerie Considine of Usher IRC pipped Kate Rudd of Nenagh in a blanket finish with Marica Attoresi (Cycleways) third and Kathleen Gill (Navan Avonmore) in fourth place. The winning time for the race was 41 minutes with a stiff breeze facing the cyclists. The second group caught limit riders Imelda Tully (Navan Avonmore) and Kim Jaya (US) on the second lap.

Scratch riders Marie Reilly (Bohermeen CC), Gillian McDarby (IMBRC) and Roisin Kennedy (Usher IRC) averaged just under 40 kilometers per hour but failed to catch the first group. The long straight outside the Boot Inn saw a very exciting blanket finish with Valerie Considine notching up her first win from triathlete Kate Rudd who proved her ability in her first ever open race.
