Emma McMullan Trophy races

With very strong Winds forecast I brought the trusty Nikon to Bishopscourt Race Circuit in County Down for the 2015 Emma McMullan Trophy cycle races hosted by Dromara Cycling Club.

Throughout the day there were various races from the under Fourteens to the Masters and also a Ladies race. The very strong Wind made for tough, challenging conditions but thankfully it stayed mostly dry and sunny with just the odd passing shower. Keeping in the pack of cyclists was the only way to battle the headwind up the back section, once dropped out the back of the shelter from the pack your race was over and numerous riders quit prematurely when they had been dropped.

A good days racing well supported by various cycle clubs with very challenging conditions to ensure every competitor got a good workout.
