Bann Wheelers hosted the fourth race in the Interclub league on Tuesday 18 June on their Letterloan Road circuit.

Weather conditions were perfect which ensured a full field of 60 riders handicapped into four groups. Bann Wheelers riders Shane McDonald and Jason McIntyre demonstrated a fine ‘work ethic’ sharing most of the load during this five lap 25 mile race. The first group managed to stay away and splintered into a core of 10 riders working hard not to get caught. Come the last lap a young Ballymena rider made a break at the start of the last climb towards the finish line, this was closed down quickly by Bann Wheelers ‘Pocket Rocket’ Jason McIntyre who launched himself towards the finish line securing a fine win.

Bann Wheelers would like to thank Laurence and Connor Bradley for preparing the course, Alison Wright and Corinne McDonald for their secretarial skills and all those involved in marshalling duties on the night.
