Ireland’s Top Rider Signs Up for Giant’s Causeway Sportive


Posted Tuesday 2nd August –

Ireland’s top pro tour cyclist Philip Deignan (Radioshack) will be joining hundreds of keen amateur cyclists on Saturday, September 17 for the first ever Giant’s Causeway Coast Sportive in Northern Ireland.

The Radioshack rider will join cyclists from all across Ireland and the UK to cycle a choice of three routes through the spectacular Causeway Coast and Glens of Antrim. The 27-year-old will also be speaking about his pro career so far, his relationship with former teammate Lance Armstrong and his gruelling training regime at an intimate pre-event dinner on the Friday night at Ballycastle Golf Club, County Antrim.

“The Giant’s Causeway Coast Sportive is set up to a great event with fantastic scenic cycling along the coast and through the glens with some challenging hill climbs to look forward to,” Deignan said at the recent press launch. “Luckily hills happen to be my own personal strength so it will be a great opportunity to train before I head off to the UCI Road World Championships in Copenhagen.”
