BALLYMENA Road Club held a race last week on the Caddy circuit where club rider Luke McMullan took the spoils in a sprint finish ahead of visiting rider Ed Kearney of Phoenix CC.
The race was frantic from the start with various riders trying to get away on the first lap but it took unto the second for the jump to get clear.
The break went with about five riders getting away only to be brought back later in the lap.
This was a hard fought race.
