Roscommon cyclist Daire Feeley.


Roscommon cyclist Daire Feeley produced another magnificent performance this afternoon, finishing second in the Cycling Ireland National Road Race Championships in County Wicklow.

Feeley, riding for the All human/VeloRevolution team, has already won the National Road Series this season, and his good form continued on Sunday to enhance his burgeoning reputation.

Competing in the elite men’s road race, a race that featured Nicolas Roche, Eddie Dunbar, Sam Bennett and defending champion Ben Healy, Feeley found himself in the lead group before breaking away with Ryan Mullen — Thursday’s time trial winner — on the last lap for the top prize.

In a sprint for the line, Feeley was just edged out by Mullen, but it was still a terrific performance from the Roscommon cyclist who continues to go from strength to strength on the national and international stages.

“I thought I had him (Mullen), to be honest, coming in the road. I was on his wheel but his experience stood to him at the end of the day. I can’t complain with second against that field.

“It’s my first national senior medal — a silver — hopefully, we can get the gold sometime.

“I love riding my bike here. I have a great team, great sponsors; Everyone gets on like a house on fire. I don’t want to change that for the world,” said Feeley afterwards.
