BIO; I joined Comeragh CC in 2014 after cycling for a few years and started racing in the same year, this is my fourth year racing. I have been looking forward to doing the junior tour pretty much since I started racing so it is surreal to be this close to it. My best achievements in cycling have been winning a national gold medal with the club last year for the team classification in the time trial. Competing in the Gorey three day this year was also great to experience the team atmosphere in a stage race.
