In the youth racing Cian Smailes took the U16 title after a strong solo attack and finished well ahead of the other riders. In the senior race Barry Horgan and Jerry McCarthy performed very well and Barry was extremely unlucky to miss out on a podium place. Jerry McCarthy finished 3rd in the A3 category and Pierce Boland 2nd in the A4. Impressive riding yet again by both riders. The first two junior riders to cross the finish line were Tralee Manor West duo, Oran Pierse and Cillian Tierney. Cillian and Oran have raced impressively all season and more well deserved success to them yesterday. Congratulations to all Tralee Manor West riders today who yet again represented the club so well. Thanks to Sliabh Luachra CC for a well run event. David Fitzgerald was also presented with his 2nd place overall trophy from the Kerry County League. Congratulations David.
