North West Cycling Club presented a framed Tour of Omagh Sprint winners jersey to Brian Cassidy of the club’s main sponsors Claudy Cycles. The signed green jersey, won by Alan Campbell last August, marked the club’s emergence on to the racing scene and has been followed up with early season wins in the Ulster calendar.
Campbell, likened by some to John Degenkob and by others to the Incredible Hulk, said “Giving up one of my green jerseys brings a tear to my eye, but the focus now is on the Trofeo de Mallorca and the Ras dhun na nGall where I hope to add to my jersey collection”.
In other news the club have signed up to the Northern Interclub league aimed at team development. The competition is open to Club Competition (Limited Comp) licence holders up to A3 licence holders and starts in April.
