Rory Townsend as one of those "domestic amateur riders" still deserves a mention, though, I'd say. He'll be hard to beat for Dunbar, I guess, especially in pouring rain now. The other two in front are Cormac McGeoough (Wildlife Generation Pro Cycling) and Dean Harvey (Spellman-Dublin Port), who I'd say is the only real amateur up there
I was operating on the (unfounded?) assumption that random Conti and national elite riders with few prospects of a pro contract arent of much wider interest. I agree that Townsend is the favourite from this position.
