A busy week of racing kicked off a bank holiday Monday with a trip down to Gowran on May 7th. Less than an hour from Dublin, Gowran is internationally known for its picturesque racecourse, Gowran Park. A nice course with a few climbs around the 1.5K lap. We had a strong team going down with Paul , Michael , Gavin, Damien, Kevin and Gareth. The ladies were represented with Amy, Anna, Catriona and Susan. Unfortunately this year we didn’t have a masters team in either the mens of women’s race.
Paul finished 5th in the mens race but was unfortunately was later disqualified as he had finished 2nd last year. This moved the team down from 2nd to 3rd. Susan finished 2nd overall leading the ladies team to 3rd spot also.
Thanks to Gavin for the photos.
