Cookstown: Scintillating Super Twins Glory For Skerries Sweeney

Post the drama filled conclusion to the Super Twins B-race, the (A) Twins race opened with a rapid start from twice Junior Manx Grand Prix winner Michael Sweeney.

Sweeney the current Duke Road Race Rankings Champion, held a 0.179 advantage over Adam McLean as lap one concluded.

It was all change though on lap two as McAdoo Kawasaki’s McLean hit the front.

Red flags soon arose following an incident involving McLean, from which he emerged un-harmed.

Post a moderate delay, racing got back underway with a reduced five lap distance.

As during the previous race start, Skerries Sweeney got the hole shot. 0.937 ahead of Cowton Racing’s Dominic Herbertson post culmination of the opening lap, his race-lead grew to 1.5 seconds plus on lap two.

There was no stopping Sweeney from here, who’s final race success margin was just shy of five seconds.

Classic TT winner, podcast host, fans favourite Herbertson took second whilst the final spot on the podium was scooped by Paul ‘Potchy’ Williams.

Matt Rees occupied fourth, Open B race victor Darryl Anderson got the better of Eoin O’Siochru for fifth whilst the remainder of the top ten was rounded out by:

Stephen McKnight, Michael Gillan, ‘Tommy Club’ member Dan Ingham and Lightweight Supersport victor Kris Duncan.
