An Irish U23 selection took part in the Ronde van Vlaanderen Beloften (1.Ncup) at the weekend and this video from An Post CRC shows some of that action.
David Montgomery was the best of the Irish taking a fine 18th place with Eddie Dunbar two places behind. Matthew Teggart finished in 31st with Sean McKenna and Angus Fyffe in 100th and 111th places respectively.
The team had very aggressive throughout the day as Michael O’Loughlin made it into the main breakaway and Teggart made it into a dangerous breakaway from which the winner emerged inside the closing 20 kilometres. Unfortunately for Teggart, he crashed out of the break in the closing kilometres.
