The club was again represented by Pat Ryan and Dermot Radford, who both took on the 82km, three lap race. The riders rolled out at almost a leisurely pace as riders contemplated what waited, but the pace steadily increased until it turned into the long climb when a high tempo was set by those looking to make an impact on the results. A few breaks were formed at the front over the course of the first lap but none gathered much impetus and never looked like they would get too far up the road. On the second lap there was a clear break in the bunch on the climb as the pace was again increased and Dermot, having being caught behind the spilt, had to work his way up to the front of the split and bridge across the gap to ensure the race did not get away from him. Unfortunately Pat did not make it into the third lap where one of the ever aggressive Fermoy C.C. riders broke away to hold a 30 second gap on the chasers. On the climb in the third lap Carrick Wheelers led the chase with one rider doing an excellent job in almost reigning in the break on the climb. Dermot, sitting second wheel, kept the tempo going when the Carrick rider pulled off the font and as soon as the catch was made further attacks were launched in an attempt to get away before the top of the climb. The Tipp Wheelers rider, having been dropped back into the middle of what remained of the leading group, hung in and again moved back up towards the front of the bunch on the last sharp kick up on the circuit.
The final kilometres of the race from this point was a downhill section towards a sharp right hander and into a final long, flat run in to the finishing line. Numerous attacks were made by different riders over the last eight kilometres, and due to the pace of the climbs it was a group of about 25 riders that raced towards the finishing line. The lone Tipp Wheeler sprinted with each attack, again holding second wheel right into the final kilometre, at which point nobody was able or willing to lead out the sprint, which resulted in a wall of riders stretching from one kerb to the other coming in to the finishing line. Dermot, sitting in the front line of riders held on in the sprint to finish in eight position to get into the prizes, rounding off a very successful weekend for the club.
