McCann takes the win at stage 1 of the Tour of Omagh

Costcutter Tour of Omagh Stage 1 - 27 June 2014: Starting later on in the evening meant that throughout the stage the weather held up, riders remaining dry and being able to ride in safe conditions.

Ulster riders at the Beaumont trophy race

Due to a request from a Cycling Ulster senior about the opportunity to ride a UK premier calendar race as part of an Ulster team, I started to look into if this was possible.
