Lisburn Triathlon


Lining up on the same start line as Geoff was always going to a hard event to do. But had to pull out all the stops as the pressure was on. I was able to make up some good time on my rival in both the swim and the cycle. Which allowed me to save some energy for the run. Happy for the overall win and keeping Geoff looking at my heels.


Hi guys, unfortunately near drowning in the pool due to a tri-suit malfunction (didn’t check it before event) and a bike crash 10 minutes from the finish (fair weather cyclist) robbed me of a podium finish today.Any way no injuries,  nor damage to the bike and £1000 raised for the NI air ambulance so many thanks for all your support now I think there's a pint of Guinness with my name on it somewhere

2019 Ulster Xc Champs

Graham Boyd

Crazy tough conditions today at Lady Dixon park in Belfast. After a few weeks of dry weather, the rain decided to fall on the day the Championships. This made thing very tricky and felt like a totally different course from the day before at practice.

Xmtb as normal putting on a great event.

That's the mtb over for another year. No time to rest though, only a few months to the cross!!

William Boyd

After a season wrecked by injury, I was glad to finally get going again at the Ulster XC Championships today. Ended up coming away with 4th place just missing out on a podium position.

A great event put on by XMTB, a pity about the weather. Now to get the head down for the upcoming Cyclocross season.

Tour of Omagh

Laura Whylie

What an experience & incredible event from Omagh wheelers at the Tour of Omagh. Riding for the Cycling Ulster ladies team

This was my first stage race and wasn’t to sure what to expect. But having it now completed I will definitely be looking to do more in the future

Thanks to Cycling Ulster for giving me the opportunity to be part of an amazing team.

Cycling Ulster was 3rd team overall, most combative rider, 2nd U23, 2nd & 3rd W3 rider, top 10 on GC and getting the stage win today solo has left me buzzing!

Ulster TT and road race


Had a good weekend riding Ulster TT and road race.
Not pleased with my TT result after suffering from a mechanical, plenty of lessons learnt from the road race. Happy to finish in the group

Travelled to Lady Dixon Park on Sunday to the Ulster Championships. First XC race and managed to pick up a wee medal. 3rd place. Very happy with that. Terrible conditions, summer tyres steep learning curve, Will be back for more.

European Youth Olympics. Azerbaijan


51st today out of 75 riders. Happy enough as I was taking on some of the best youth riders in the world and it was my first time at this level of competition. Added with some nerves to the event. It was incredibly windy this morning, Gale Force 8 with gusts. That was hard enough but it was also 29°C!
Road race today - 50km in 34°C heat!
Finished in the main group. 7 mins off the winner, 3.5 mins off 4th. Very hot, very tough but didn't get pulled as a lot of other riders did.

European Junior Tour of Assen Holland


Cannibal Team on schedule in European Junior Tour of Assen Holland.
