History in the Making! – Women’s Super Sunday RR Results

Orla Hendron writes:

Super Sunday 5th September saw I may stand corrected, but I believe the First over 35 Womens Masters race in the history of bike racing in Ireland.
Nearly 20 enthusiastic Women from far and wide didn’t let the early start deter them from lining up to tackle a very sporting and challenging course of Dorey’s Forge, one of the IVCA’s best circuits.

The racing was full on from the start with Aideen Keenan being the main protagonist and while Dorey’s Forge as expected forced some splits in the peloton some strong riding from behind and some tactical racing up front saw the race come down to a bunch sprint with Katy Harrison showing she had learnt a thing or two from her summer of Corkagh Park racing taking a super win from a very Impressive Aideen Keenan who was also awarded the combativity prize. Third across the line was our Champion of Corkagh Park organisation Beata Golezak and a fine 4th place was taken by Julie Rea coming all the way from Phoenix CC.
Local Meath Woman Helen White claimed 5th place and another long distance traveller Angela Hoare took an impressive 6th place.

To showcase and promote Women’s Masters racing the IVCA also made a special presentation to the 6 Over 50 Women and 1st in that category was Julie Rea with Helen White taking 2nd place and Sharon Kennedy all the way from Greenmount claiming 3rd.
Many Thanks to the IVCA racing committee and the IVCA members supporting and hosting this event. As always, the organisation and Marshalling was super safe and supportive. Many Thanks to the Hatchet Pub who provided a great spread for the most important post race chats.

Huge thanks to all the Women who supported this inaugural event especially those that travelled from beyond the Pale.

As Always, the racing was captured by Brendan Culleton.

Many Thanks Brendan for capturing our efforts.

IVCA Membership 2020

Current / Past Members – Closing Date 1st Feb 2020

IVCA membership for 2020 is now open and this year renewal will be via completed forms to be emailed back to the Treasurer (treasurer@theivca.com), along with an accompanying EFT to the IVCA bank account. The IVCA is open to males who are / will be 40 years of age or older, and females who are/will be 35 years of age, or older, in the calendar year to which membership applies. 

If you prefer, you can still post cheques via normal post – however payment via EFT is the preferred option, as it is a much quicker option and speeds up administration.

The closing date for membership applications is 1 February 2020 and will be strictly applied. There are a number of licence options open to you, as set out below.

With regard to licence fees, and as mentioned in a recent email to all members, due to unprecedented and significant rise in Insurance costs, the licence fee has had to be increased in line with the schedule of fees as outlined below. All licences are affected, and the IVCA has arrived at the fee structure after careful consideration of costs going forward. In particular, it was sought to keep the R2 licence below EUR300, and the only way that this could be realistically achieved means that for 2020 and most likely going forward, the award of all prize monies will be discontinued.

First-Time Members – Closing Date for pre-Application: 15 December 2019

If you are applying as a first-time member, please see the instructions at the bottom of this page with regard to pre-Application; there is no need to fill out any other form(s) at this point, and you will be contacted if you have been approved and need to fill out further forms.
