Niall Craven

Mid Louth Independent - - SPORT -

DONORE cy­clist Niall’s hopes of tak­ing on the iconic Ras Tail­teann seemed to have been shat­tered when he crashed and broke his col­lar­bone in an­other event just 26 days be­fore the race.

But Niall didn’t give up and some­how he made it to the star t in Drogheda along with his Louth team­mates Barry Hughes, Cian De­laney, Arek Klus and Paul Smith. He then bat­tled for eight con­sec­u­tive days, sur­viv­ing crashes, ex­treme weather and the tough­est of time lim­its to com­plete the en­tire 1,180km.
