FBD 8 Day International Cycle Race

Last Friday 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th classes went to see the FBD 8 Day International Cycle Race. It was stage 6, Carrick on Suir to Gorey, 127 kilometres in total. We walked down to Gairdín an Ghorta at 11:00. We waited 28 minutes for the first rider to arrive. Altogether there were 170 riders from all over Ireland, Europe and even the world! There were loads of cars, vans and motorbikes. Most of them beeped their horns at us! The first rider was a little ahead of the second and the rest were in a massive mob, except for a few stragglers. When they passed, we cheered, shouted, jumped up and down and made ourselves known! It was really exciting to watch!
