National Champion Gillespie Shines On A Grey Morning

On an overcast morning at the Tour Of Omagh , the women faced a 2.5mile time trial on the main Dromore Road , a fast stretch of road which normally gives up some good times.

It was to be a close run race with National Junior Champion Lara Gillespie pipping Pink Jersey holder Jennifer George by just over 2 seconds with Jennifer Bates from Cycling Leinster a further four seconds behind.

It was to have minimal impact on the general classification but with four riders in the top ten on the stage the team GC was now favouring the Cycling Ulster Women with the TC Team just 16 Seconds in arrears and Cycling Leinster further 21 Seconds behind them.

Following the stage the presentation of Jerseys saw Jennifer George awarded the coveted Pink Jersey, Isobel Oakes from Smugglers CC wearing the Points Jersey and Lara Gillespie with a firm grip on the Young Riders Jersey.
