by CyclingTips

A few weeks ago we featured the custom-built carbon Fifty One Cycles bike of Ronan McLaughlin. Previously racing with the An Post Chainreaction team, he has returned to working full time but rode the bike in the An Post Rás. He’s since taken on a huge challenge, racing the Donegal Atlantic Way Ultra Race. McLaughlin won the 555 kilometre event in a time of 19 hours 19 minutes (including stops), averaging 28.7 k/ph (17.9mph). Looking at riding time only, he covered the distance in 18 hours 43 minutes, averaging 29.5 k/ph (18.4mph). Here’s a video of his ride.
