First Year Junior McLaughlin wins in Galway

Niall McLaughlin riding his first race at senior level put some of the top riders in the country to the sword last night at the Pallas Criterium in Galway. The 16 year who already has a lot of experience racing in road, cyclocross and mountain biking rode a very mature race making all the right moves and finishing with a devastating sprint to see off Senior A1 riders. Niall is riding with the Westport CC Development Team and this result is a fantastic start to the season for the team and management! Next up is the Holian Cup on Friday night where the team will have a full compliment of riders with A4 to A1 riders represented.
