Race report March 30

Racing for the FCC team commenced on Saturday at the Cicki Sport GP at The Loup (near Moneymore).

    To all involved in the organisation and marshalling and foodstops on the 2013 Inishowen a great big thanks from your favourite overweight foul and loudmouthed cycling buddy from County Down.

    Fantastic set up as always and the weather was kind also.

    Some majestic rugged scenery around Malin Head and Kinnego made the pain worthwhile.That and the abuse from hecklers on the roadside and in cars passing by.You know who you are Donnelly

    Really glad I was able to participate.

    Missed Fergal McGeady grinning as he directed everyone down in Kinnego this year.That was always his favourite spot.
