Dubliner Alan McCormack took an unconventional route in his professional cycling career, whereby he made it big in the US, rather than the normal route of racing in continental Europe.

Although he had spent some time racing on the continent, including finishing the Vuelta, it was his move to the US which kick started his career in the eighties.

The biggest race in the US at the time was the Coors Classic or Red Zinger race as it was also known, and McCormack won numerous stages in the race.

The video below shows some of McCormack’s highlights from the race, and also features his brother Paul.
