34th Radjugendtour final podium in Austrian authentic clothing style of the region

Super news from Austria came trough…Darren Rafferty (Island Wheelers) managed to keep his 3rd overall place after 5 days hard work with his team Ireland… just a magic performance for this now well seasoned International Irish U/16 Champion who kept a second Belgian rider from the podium doing so…well done young man…looking forward to seeing you with the juniors next year and welcome you in my selection pool. Also, have to applaud the other lads in the team who helped Darren to achieve such a great result.
