VIDEO AND REPORT: FINAL ROUND OF WHEELWORX ORWELL WOMEN'S CRIT LEAGUE

Having picked up an excellent ninth place in her first time trial on Sunday, the UCI ranked Celtic Chrono, Cycleways rider Mel Spath showed her solo power once again when she dominated the final round of the Orwell womens league in Sandyford this week.



Spath started in the third group of the handicap event, which was held over twelve laps of a small circuit in the Sandyford Industrial Estate, and soon pushed ahead of the others. She cut through the two groups ahead and opened up an ever-increasing lead.



Spath eventually lapped most of the field and was over a minute clear of her closest rivals Sandra Fitzgerald (Garda CC) and Anne Dalton (Orwell Dundrum Town Centre).



The latter�s team-mate Charlotte MacDonald and Monica Marconi (Henry J. Lyons) were fourth and fifth.



Dalton had started the final round in the Wheelworx leader�s jersey and her third place sealed the victory. She finished up with 155 points, twenty more than Patricia Buckley (Orwell Dundrum Town Centre) and a further five ahead of Marconi.



Watch the video here, including an interview with Spath:





Meanwhile Polish rider Marlena Dozdziok (Epic) triumphed in the six lap �b� race, her first competitive event. She started in the second of three groups and after those bunches merged, attacked and rode clear to hit the line several seconds ahead of Orwell�s Isabel Cogan and Caroline Martinez (Sundrive).



Cogan dominated the overall standings, with her 159 points being far ahead of those amassed by Sorcha McKeating, Naoise Sheridan and the rest.



A video summary plus an interview with the race winner follows:
