Martyn Irvine – “I’m a good roadman in my own right, not just a track rider who hangs on”


The last time that VeloVeritas spoke to Irish trackman Martyn Irvine, the news was all good – he’d just won two silver medals in the Glasgow World Cup and signed a nice crisp contract with US Pro Continental squad, United Healthcare.

And life just keeps improving for the Irishman; it can’t really get much better than a world title – unless you’ve already just taken a World’s silver medal minutes before you grabbed the rainbow jersey, that is.

It’s more than a century since an Irishman was champion of the world – and especially sweet for Irvine given that he was extremely disappointed with his seventh place finish in the London Olympic omnium.

Martyn took time to talk to VeloVeritas as he prepared to fly out to the Tour of Taiwan to join his United Healthcare team.
