Shay O’Hanlon – Irish Rás Multi-Record Holder

"[The Rás] wasn’t the only thing to me but it was the apex of my season."


Ireland’s ‘Rás,’ a cult bike race; Marcin Bialoblocki, Tony Martin, Stephen Roche and Scotland’s own Jamie McGahan number among the GC winners. So who’s the ‘recordman’ as the French say, the man with most GC wins? That would be Dubliner Shay O’Hanlon on four overall victories; 1962, ’65, ’66 and ’67.

But who’s had the most days in yellow, an impressive 37 days – the same Mr. O’Hanlon.

And the stage wins record of 24?

Yes, that O’Hanlon fella again.
