Bert Roesems and Rab Wardell #1 – In the Mix at the Rás


Bert Roesems… Whilst the world goes ‘Giro crazy,’ other races that don’t involve pink jerseys go on their way without Lance and all the hype — the FDB Insurance Rás is one of them.

The roll of honour goes back to 1953 and includes legends of Irish cycling like John Mangan, Peter Doyle, Stephen Roche and Billy Kerr; not to mention multiple GB Worlds and Olympic track medallist, Chris Newton and rising Columbia & Germany chrono star, Tony Martin.

And not forgetting, back in 1981, Scotland’s very own Jamie McGahan.

When Viktor and I heard that Nico Eeckhout, Jaan Kirsipuu and Bert Roesems were riding, we nearly hopped the ferry to Ireland there and then.
