Navan Road Club's Joseph Mullen dominant in Dundalk

Under 16 cyclist Joseph Mullen of Navan Road Club is finding the roads of Dundalk to his liking, where last week he posted 3 wins in the town. Following on from his solo win in the first round of The Bike Station Summer Cycling last week, he was moved back a group for the second round. However this made little difference as once again he was the first rider across the white line on Thursday night. Then on Saturday and Sunday, Cuichulainn CC cohosted the underage Leinster Championships and Mullen cleaned up in the under 16 road race & time trial winning both.

The 47km route for the second round of the league, which started at the Fane Bridge and finished close to Dorian's Pub outside Kilsaran, saw some very fast racing, with the scratch group averaging 44km per hour for the race. Despite this high speed, the scratch group did not manage to close the gap to the front and it was Mullens 2nd wion in as many weeks, with Armagh Down's Don Harte in second and Niall Browne of Drogheda Wheelers in third. 
The support race was won by local undrage rider Eoin Homes, beating out two Carrickmacross riders into 2nd and 3rd, Aidan Leonard and Darren Kane respectively. 
Over the weekend the Cuhculainn hosted the underage Lesinter road and time trial championships alongside White River Wheelers of Dunleer.  In the Time Trial event the club managed a number of medals with Callum Mc Caffrey taking the gold in the under 15 boys. Ffionn Dolan and Grace O'Rourke claimed silver and bronze in the Under 14 girls, while Rhiannon Dolan got the bronze in the Under 16 girls. In the road race, Rhiannon came within inches of winning the gold when she was just beaten by Mya Dooceyof Navan Road Club.
