Our last ever Ras Donegal with our Provincial Junior Composite development Team in 2017…The Ras Donegal was one of the best training grounds to shape the juniors…such a pity it doesn’t run anymore as it was one of the best stage races I was involved with and preparation for some of the selections before travelling to Belgium as part of the project summer racing

The Hardman from Donegal Mitchell McLaughlin recuperating after the race in the Atlantic Sea, Mitchell has now progressed to a full-time rider in Italy with Zappi in 2020…we wish him all the best, one thing is for sure…not afraid of the hard work and a team player…they will love him
