Angus has lots of family support

It was a special day in Kilcullen today for the Byrnes of Silliot Hill and Kilcullen when Angus Fyffe competed in the U23 section of the National Cycling Championships, writes Brian Byrne. A strong support group from the family were here to cheer him on.

Angus is an up and coming international rider, son of Kilcullen-born Marella Fyffe (Byrne) and a recent recruit to the An Post-ChainReaction professional cycling team owned by Sean Kelly.

From Omagh in Co Tyrone, Angus is grandson of the late Tommy and Carmel Byrne of Kilcullen. He was not in the break group today, but came in with a very respectable time.

The overall Elite Men race was won by Nicholas Roche, who also won the Time Trials on Thursday night.
