Open Racing - Claire 3rd at GP

25 February 2013
The 2013 racing season started last Saturday with the Annaclone Grand Prix road races which were promoted by Banbridge cycling club. The Ballymena Road Club Chain Reaction Cycles team had four entrants: Karl Taylor, Quinton McFall, Matthew Brennan and C Grant who were in contention during the early laps but failed to achieve a top ten finish, early days!
