UCD Cycling set new national team record
Posted August 08, 2016
- New Irish record time in team pursuit for UCD Cycling
- Team rider Richardson also won major race last weekend
Team pursuit cycling takes place over 4000m with teams of four riding in single file formation to maximise speed by reducing drag. The lead cyclist rotates during the race by leaving the front and dropping back to the rear of the group.
The new record was a double success for Richardson who won the Suir Valley race last weekend. Previous winners of the three-day race include Olympian Ciarán Power and Tour de France rider Sam Bennett.
