Club Championship road race

Another beautiful toasty warm Evening and another Phoenix CC club championship race near Saintfield. I took a steady spin up the Greenway to Comber and out the Ballydrain road then around the Ballyglighorn road and Quarry road up in to Lisbane, through Drumreagh around Ballygowan and up to the Killynure road.

After chilling out in the warm sunshine for a bit I got back on the Saddle to scout out a couple of possible Photo locations. The Phoenix club race would get underway and then 5 minutes later Maryland Wheelers would start their race on the same Circuit.

Lap two and two riders made the break from the main group and were strong enough to make the break stick until the chequered flag. It looked like being a straight sprint between the two for the win but a jammed chain mere yards from the end of the race decided the race outcome.

Racing over for the Evening and I enjoyed a nice spin home in the cooler evening temperatures taking to the Castlereagh hills to watch the Sun set.
