Same-day delivery on the Wicklow 200

Wicklow 200 on the post bikeCongratulations to Mickey Laverty and Davy McKeown, who completed this year's Wicklow 200 on the Tango & Cash post-bike. That's a 200 km loop through the Wicklow Mountains, with 2,800m of vertical climbing! :-o

The bike underwent some emergency surgery to get it roadworthy again for the 200, as it took a fair bit of abuse in Rostrevor on the 2007 Slieve Martin Slaughter. Two big jubilee clips held the frame together!

Mickey takes on this year's Transalp Challenge alongside Declan McCabe, under the guise of the Cooley Bulls. Given the nature of some of their training, they will likely find the Transalp is more like a warm-down!
