Bronze For Irish Cyclist At World Cup

Eoghan Clifford has added a third medal to Ireland’s total on day two of the UCI Paracycling Road World Cup in Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland. Reigning world champion Clifford followed up his time trial victory yesterday with third place in the MC3 Road Race over four laps of a hilly, rain lashed 14.53km course. Clifford sprinted for gold after 58.12km but gave best to Italian Fabio Anobile and Steffen Waria of Germany in the final dash to the line. The Galway-native edged out Sergey Ustinov for the final medal as four riders came home clear of the chasers. Meanwhile Mark Rohan finished a battling 26th in the road race, one place ahead of his time trial result in his first event racing in the much more competitive H3 category. Team coach Neill Delahaye was able to reflect on another day of success for the Irish squad in the battle for ranking points for this year’s world cup and Paralympic qualifying points for Rio 2016.
