Bann Valley Road Club’s GMC Electrical Road Race league got off to a flying start last week.
Almost 60 riders lined up in less than perfect weather conditions to take advantage of this early season club road race.
The race was run over 3 laps of the 10km Ballynease circuit.
The race highlighted the developing confidence, strength, speed and tactics of 2 BVRC young riders - Johnny Moore and Thomas McDonnell.
It was a remarkable performance by Junior rider Jonathan Moore, first across the line in what was his first road race -with this performance it is unlikely to be his last!
Under 16 rider Thomas McDonnell took second place.
The Bann Valley racing season continues on Tuesday 5th May with the Kilrea Road 10mile TT and Tuesday 12th May with the Gortmacrane Circuit Road Race.
Full details are available on the website – www.bannvalley.co.uk. All races start at 7.30pm sharp.
Round Two of the GMC Electrical Road Race is on 23rd of June and will be 4 circuits.
