Colm Ahern's recent second place in the Bikepure GP Cyclocross earns him the latest spot in our series of rider profiles. We caught him while he was still recovering to hear about the Rás, fatherhood, and racing in the good old days.

Orwell's national track sprint championship medalist Donal Bailey was selected as the Irish domestic male cyclist of the year in the Cycling Ireland Membership awards. In the latest instalment of her regular series, Aideen Collard catches up with the man who is anything but a short distance only cyclist.


In the latest club profile we get the lowdown on Orwell’s new world champion Orla Hendron and her path to the maillot arc-en-ciel.

In the first of a new series of profiles of Orwell club members, Ronnie Brannigan steps forward to be grilled by Aideen Collard.

Orwell star Michelle Geoghegan rides Het Nieuwsblad next Saturday with pro squad Moving Ladies. Aideen Collard caught up with the Kerry climber ahead of her departure.
