A wee report of the  Eurocyles-Eurobaby International Junior Tour  Ireland 2o18 “ including results below story. Photo’s credit to John Hammer and podium photo taken from Cathir Doyle’s page.

First year Junior Shay Donley (Team Ireland & Nico Roche) showed that his selection of the team was the right one and repaid the selectors with a impressive win Sam Bennett style. With graduate of the Belgian Project Cathir Doyle  ( Team Ireland & Powerhouse)already taken the KOH jersey during stage 2,  the National Junior team start showing the international teams they will be a force to reckon with for the week. Brilliant team work was on display with Conor Gallagher (Mayo) leading Shay out in the last 5km and deliver him up front when it mattered, the hard work of Cian May ( Lucan & graduate of the project) and Liam Curley both on domestic’s duty for the day not to disregard to. The American Hot Tubes Magnus Sheffield leading the race due to the stage 1 TT had no answer this time, but still lead the race with a small margin. All to play for and with some mountain stages to come the likes of Michael Mc Glynn (Ulster team & Belgian Project bursary holder) could also has a say. Well done Shay and CI team. http://www.irishcyclingnews.com/stage-2-results-junior-tour-2018-jti18-jtireland1-eurocycles-wicklow200-clarecoco-eurobabynursery-westcountyennis/                                                                                                                                                        https://www.facebook.com/John-Hammers-Photo-Page-347880418920582/?hc_ref=ART-nNl7szg3_xEndDMO7Q9KnwRn8NtbvMj3heR-gxWUix9YPJOSV2WO_ntTE2F9TeI
