With stage 7 of this year’s Rás finishing in Drogheda, we’ve even more reason to get excited about the UCI ranked event, with news that our very own Daragh Campbell will be among those riders representing the Team Novo Nordisk development squad. Team Novo Nordisk is a global all-diabetes sports team of cyclists, triathletes and runners, spearheaded by the world’s first all-diabetes professional cycling team.
Daragh joined the US based outfit shortly after completing his Leaving Cert in 2014. He made an instant impact, notching up four podium finishes : two wins at the Pisgah Omnium and two third places at the Georgia Games Road Race and Criterium.
The Team Novo Nordisk development team is excited to race at An Post Rás. Our goals are to land a podium in a sprint stage and to place top ten in two or more stages. We will be looking for results from both Quentin and Mehdi in sprints and also to raise awareness with our local Irish rider, Daragh.
