Mixed results for Irish in Colombia
02 Nov 2015 12:12
Ireland sprinters Eoin Mullen and Shannon McCurley were involved on the final day of action in the first round of the UCI Track World Cup in Cali, Colombia.
Mullen was fifth rider off in the qualifying round of the Men’s Sprint and his flying 200m time trial was 10.216s, which placed the Aran Islander 36th overall.
McCurley was sixth in the first heat of the Women’s Keirin. She advanced to the repechage where she managed a fourth place finish.
At the end of three tough days of competition, which included a fourth place finish for Lydia Boylan in the Women’s Scratch and another top ten performance by the Women’s Pursuiters, Team Technical Director Brian Nugent was thankful for the chance to test his riders at such a level.
He said: “The standard is definitely rising because it is Olympic year and all the best nations are here with their best riders. It's good because it's also pushing us to progress at such a rate.
“We launched a big programme last year and we're catching up quick with the other nations. In some areas we're adapting better than others but across the board we're progressing. It’s exciting watching it unfold.”
