Sam goes fastest in latest Wheelers Aussie pursuit

Tuesday night saw the West Down Wheelers host the last leg of the John Maxwell Memorial Australian pursuit series.

On a night that the weather just didn’t hold off, 28 riders took to the line, setting off in four handicapped groups covering eight minutes.

The rain persisted making riding conditions less than favourable at times on the 22 mile circuit that started at the creamery fly-over to Rathfriland and home again to Ballydown via Ballyroney and Moneyslane.

It was the second group of four riders, namely Sam Cantley (WDW), Neil McCartan (Dromore CC), Mark Shilliday (WDW) and Nathan Sturrock (Dromara) who took the spoils on the night, working extremely well together and holding the field off to the line.
