Tour of Omagh 3 day – How did team DCC survive?

Last weekend saw Darren McCann, Neil Armstrong, Brian Kellett and Johny Ward head off to the first stage of the Tour of Omagh Three day. Managed to get a few reports from them to give you an insight on how it went: Build Up: Ward takes tumble at Tommy Givan chipping the old elbow and generally complaining about stuff hurting. With the Three day closing in it was time for some light turbo work and staying upright...I mean healthy to get to the start line. Kellett and Armstrong tested out Read more [...]

The Mullan Interview

The Mullan Interview

For those that don't know last weekend was the Irish National TT/Road Championships held down in Wexford. Its all very well watching these top cyclists race around the roads at the Giro or the Tour but it is very different to put your wheel on the start line beside them. Flying the flag for Dromara CC at the Irish National Road Race Championships was our very own Nathan Mullan who not only started the race but delivered a super performance to take 41st place. I thought it would be nice to throw a Read more [...]
