David Conroy wins as Glenn Kinning crowned Fixx champ


One of the most exciting talents on the off-road scene, David Conroy has shown his form today.

The Scott-Eurocycles man has been riding very well on the international cyclocross scene of late. And today he put his condition to good use, taking a clear home win Co Wicklow.

That he scalped both Robin Seymour and the Glenn Kinning to win at Russborough House simply underlined the quality of his win.

He pressed hard from the gun in what was the fourth and final round of the Fixx Supercross Series.

And while series leader Kinning put in a very good bid to keep him under control, Conroy pressed on.

In the end he took a comfortable win, celebrating with a couple of wheelies up the finishing straight.

And while Kinning looked to be set for 2nd on the day, it was Seymour (Team Worc) who came through to fill the runner-up slot.

Kinning had to be content with 3rd today. But the Kinning Cycles man had his form rewarded with a well deserved series victory.

The winner on what was a mucky afternoon; Conroy looks to have upped his game this year. The former junior national champion has been riding in the UK, Spain and Belgium.

And he will spend most of the rest of the season, leading up to the Worlds early next year, racing in Belgium.

In the women’s race today, the Scott-Eurocycles riders also triumphed.

This time it was Klaudia Bajolek riding up the finishing straight with her arms raised in triumph.

However, her win came after a tighter contest than that seen in the men’s race.

It was only towards the very end of the race that she pulled ahead of runner-up Michelle Geoghegan (Jaden Weldite).

Bajolek pressed hard on a technical stretch. And Geoghegan was unable to respond on the following running section.

As a result, the small race-winning gap was established.
