McGee takes 4 wins at 2019 Tandragee 100
Derek McGee won four races - the Feature, Supersport, Moto3/125cc and Supertwins, to add to his hat-trick at Cookstown this weekend.

The Mullingar missile took victory in the Supertwins event which was red-flagged following the crash involving Adam McLean, then triumphed in the Moto3/125cc and the main Open race of the day.


McGee took the chequered flag from fellow Irish riders Derek Sheils and Michael Sweeney in the feature race.

Meanwhile television celebrity [URL=""]Guy Martin came 2nd in the classic bike race[/URL] on his 1000cc BSA Rocket with a 90mph lap time, 21 seconds behind the winner Dean Stimpson on his 500cc Vintage Norton.

The 37-year-old last competed here in 2017.

Adam McLean crashed during the last lap of the Supertwins race, suffering arm, shoulder and pelvic injuries.

A tweet from McLean's team McAdoo Racing on Saturday night indicated that their rider was is "in really good spirits and making jokes in the hospital".

"So proud of the lad. 22 years old and pushing to win these races against way more experienced guys," the McAdoo Racing tweet continued.

Earlier in the day Burrows Engineering/RK Suzuki rider Sheils won the Open race by 0.4 seconds from long-time leader McGee, with Tobermore man McLean in third.

Sweeney, Shaun Anderson and Thomas Maxwell made up the top six leaderboard in the Open event, with Sweeney also fourth in the Supersports.

McGee scooped Supersport success with just 0.3 seconds to spare over McLean after a thrilling race-long battle.

McLean, 22, came agonisingly close to repeating his Supersport success at Cookstown but was edged out by the in-form McGee on the final lap of six.

Dubliner Sheils completed the podium positions by coming home in third.

McGee was also man-of-the-meeting at last year's Tandragee and again at Cookstown seven days ago where he clinched a treble of victories.
