Co Tyrone (Dungannon, where the national championships are taking place today (TT) and over the weekend), so entitled to call himself Irish or British.And this Irish rider is actually Irish (if his name is anything to go by).
And Gerry RaffertyCo Tyrone (Dungannon, where the national championships are taking place today (TT) and over the weekend), so entitled to call himself Irish or British.
But given the Irish diaspora, names are not anything to go by: Ben O'Connor, Kelland O'Brien, Sean Quinn, Tao Geoghegan (not so much the Hart bit), Colin Joyce, Kyle Murphy...
Yeah he's not a regular scorer due to sickness and inconsistency but he will get a few big results here and there.Good news. He hasn’t really had the career most of us expected since his Flanders win and his form can be very inconsistent, but he’s still one of the strongest riders on the team.
He apparently had interest from WT teams last year, after he won the U23 Strade Bianchi as an 18 year old, but his agents decided that he was too young. This year though, he’s just finished second at the Baby Giro and once you are at a level where you are podiuming that or Avenir there’s limited benefit to hanging around the espoir races for another year (or two or three).Might it be better for his development to go to the devo team first?
