Owens takes Irish Silver medal

 

The Irish National Youth Championships took place in Ballymoney at the weekend, with two Omagh Wheelers riders, Somhairle Owens Fisher and Joseph Owens taking part in the U15 events. 

 

Starting off with the time trial on Saturday morning, both lads made a solid start with Somhairle and Joseph finishing 10thand 11threspectively. Moving on to the afternoon, the boys competed in the U15 road race. The race took place in very wet and treacherous conditions. Both riders rode very well on the undulating course and in the battle for the finish Joseph placed himself superbly for the sprint and just missed out on the win, narrowly beaten into 2ndplace. Team-mate Somhairle was slightly held up by a crash finishing in a strong 15thplace.

 

Sunday saw the final event – a criterium – which again took part in damp conditions. Joseph and Somhairle handled themselves very well against the best of Ireland and finished in 6thand 9threspectively.

 

Joseph’s 2ndin the Road race earned him the Silver Irish medal which is a great achievement for the rider from Sixmilecross. Somhairle also put in a fine performance that he can be proud off. Both riders have developed considerably in their first year U16 and have done their club very proud.
