McIlwaine dominates Joe Daly’s National League 2016

Over 50 different women signed on for the Joe Daly’s Women’s National League 2016 with more than half racing their first National League race. With an average of about 30 riders per race there was fierce competition between the top riders. Women’s racing took another step up this year so well done to all the new riders. Keep it up.

 

Claire McIlwaine of Phoenix CC has claimed the Joe Daly’s Women’s National League 2016 – well done. Claire dominated the league claiming the jersey in round 1 and managed to retain the jersey for the entire league. With 3 victories and several placing’s this was enough to seal the overall victory. The competition was not easily won and the points were very close between the top 5 of the leader board.

 

Here is a reminder of the winners of each round:

  1. The Round 1 brought us to Carlow for the Des Hanlon Memorial. This tough hilly circuit was won by Claire McIlwaine of Phoenix CC from breakaway companions Orla Montague and Monica Marconi.
  2. The Nenagh Classic was won by Aideen Keenan of Orwell Wheelers from a breakaway of 4.
  3. Claire McIlwaine took her second win in Bohermeen with a late escape just ahead of the main bunch.
  4. Round 4 brought us to Kilkenny for the Deenside Cup where McIlwaine took her 3rd victory.
  5. Round 5 in Emyvale was taken by Michelle O’Halloran of Lakeside Wheelers outsprinting her breakaway companion Sinnead Oakes
  6. Donamon GP was a new race to the league bringing us to Roscommon for our only Connacht race. This was won by Fiona Guihen of Irish Centre for Cycling.
  7. Round 7, the Eddie Tobin Memorial was taken by the talented junior Emily Birchall of NRPT showing us that the future is bright.
  8. The final round brought us to Mullingar where Sinnead Oakes of De Ronde sprinted to victory.
