Lorcan Kilkenny winner of Round 10, being presented with his trophy from the Bike's Stations Karl Dolan

Round 10 of The Bike Station Cycling League was a tough 45km course that finished atop of the Long Woman's Grave, with the added twist of coming from the Glenmore side as opposed to the more traditional Ferryhill Road side.

In race 2, Lorcan Kilkenny put in a masterful display to take a solo win. Kilkenny rode away from his fellow group 2 riders on the Carlingford road. Behind group 3 did catch up to the remains of group 2 and they rode hard to try and bring him back. On the long drag to the finish they were unable to rein him in and Kilkenny took his first league win of the season. Behind, group 3 riders Jamie O`Hare & David Finnegan were next home in second and third respectively.
In race 1, groups 6 and 5 had come together and on the rise into Lordship 3 riders Alan Bingham, Gary Gorman and Liam Dolan broke away from them and bridged across to group 4. On the climb to the finish Bingham and Dolan managed to get away and crossed the line together with arms held aloft to share the win. Gorman was swept up by the chasing bunch, but had enough in his leg's to take the sprint for 3rd ahead of Sean Featherstone from Newry Wheelers.
In open racing over the weekend the club notched a few top 10 results. In Navan Arann McCann took 5th in the A4 race, meanwhile in Banbridge Liam Dolan claimed 7th in the A1 race.

In the elite race, covering 180km, Nicholas Roche will be favourite to defend his 2016 title and take the Irish Champion's jersey into the Tour de France the following weekend.
