Great spin today with the middle group. We got a bit too close to the fast group from time to time which seemed to spur them on. Our average speed was 26.5kph and total of 92.7km.
We had 12 at the start and 12 at the finish. I will try to name check them all: Jen, Siobhain, Oonagh, Daragh, Dermot, Colman, Colin, Dave, Aaron and me. that's only 11 so I've missed one. Who did I miss?
Dermot was almost embarrassed by new boy Aaron on the Burke Oil Sprint. Aaron has a fine engine on him according to Siobhain!
