The Irish Paracycling team attended the World Track Championships in Italy last week and amongst their numbers were two Mullingar men who formed part of the backroom team. 

The team was managed by former Mullingar cyclist Tommy McGowan who has many years of experience dealing with cycling teams due to his contributions to several Rás teams, whilst Lakeside Wheelers member, Steve Franzoni was on duty as a mechanic for the week. Considering the team only consisted of six athletes it was a major achievement to win a silver and bronze medal at these very competitive championships. Well done to all concerned.
