Today’s Stage(3) was a 105km road race that took the field up the cliffs of Moher which consisted of a category 2 climb. The race started fast with many of the riders trying to break away from the peloton. With 30km to go the cliff of Moher loomed with USA based team Hot Tubes setting the pace. When the climb started I had an unfortunate mechanical meaning I had to chase for 30seconds onto the group. Thankfully legs where strong and managed to make my way back through the peloton all the way to the front.
The rest of ERC managed to make it over the climb and make it through the convoy to catch back on before the finish with all of us finishing comfortably in the bunch, ready to go for stage 4

Interesting coincidence! Today Dan Martin won a stage at the Tour De France……. Back in July many years ago he also won a stage of the Junior Tour of Ireland
