47th Drumm Cup Results

Richard Hooton (Visit Nenagh) had a fine victory in Currow today as he spent  miles at the head of the race to win on his own from Kerryman Sean Lacey Dan Morrissey/Speedy Spokes and Eddie Barry from Blarney CC.

The race was held on a fine but very blustery day that saw the cyclists meat a headwing, a crosswind and a tailwind that would ensure a fast finish to all races. The first move of the day was made by Denis Dunworth (Visit Nenagh) and the Kerryman led over the line on the first passage. Hooton followed a move across to him on lap two and never left the front of the race for the rest of the day.

Sean Lacey, Eddie Barry, Martin O’Loughlin (Carrick Iverk), Paudie O’Brien (Dan Morrisey/Speedy Spokes) and Michael Hennessy (Fermoy) chased hard and were hoping that Hooton would crack into the headwind but he used his strength to hold out for a second victory and enjoyed the last few hundred metres as he realised today was his day.

There was a great turnout across all catagories including the underage racing and Eoin Green from Clonmel also showed his strength to win the A3 catagory from Steve Murray and Barry Twohig.

Ger Moore (Cork County) won on his own from a very large A4 field with Donnacha Galvin and Daithi Creedon leading the rest home.

So, overall a very successful and well run event with the stewards and the Gardai to be commended for their work.

The Drumm Cup has a new and worthy home for the year in Richard Hooton who is looking forward like many of the competitors to next months An Post Ras.
