Jimmy Flynn takes National Title

Dundalk's Cucuhulainn Cycling Club continued it's recent run of good form in National Championships, when it improved upon 2 National silver medals 2 weeks ago, with it's first gold of the season. Sunday last (October 1st) saw the country's cycling community descend upon Castledaly in Co. Galway for the National Hill Climb Champs. The climb used for the event was locally know as The Scalp, a 2km climb with an average gradient of 6%, but with stretchs at 19%.

Local stalwart of cycling, Jimmy Flynn, claimed the gold in the Masters 60 category, beating off Sean Hargan of Belfast (2nd) and Cork's Tom Daly (3rd). Jimmy is no stranger to claiming national medals, however this is the first time he has topped the podium. Having targeted this event from the start of the season, Flynn specifically used the climb at Jenkinstown to hone his form.
