Chris McGlinchey (Spectra Wiggle p/b Vitus) and Caoimhe May (Pinergy Orwell Wheelers) powered to victory at the Cross-Country National Championships at Bellurgan Park, Co. Louth over the weekend hosted by Bellurgan Wheelers. 

The rain added to the already challenging course couldn't stop McGlinchey from claiming his third national title this year adding to his Cyclo-Cross and E-Racing. McGlinchey dominated from the start opening up a 30 second advantage on the first lap and maintained his strong form throughout the race to take the win comfortably.
