Lakeside Wheelers’ first ever professional rider, Damien Shaw, has secured a second year’s contract at the An Post Chain Reaction Sean Kelly Team. Having debuted with the Belgian based, Irish registered Continental team in 2016, Shaw gained invaluable experience from the excellent programme which this team follows.

Aside from riding several races in Belgium and France, some highlights from his first year at professional level include a magnificent 5th place overall in the An Post Rás, completing the Tour of Britain and a host of Irish team selections at International events such as the Philadelphia Classic in the USA, Europen Cycling Championships in Brittany, France and the Beaumont Cup in Britain.

Damien is currently back in full-time training after a short break and will hook up with the team in Spain next month for pre-season training. The club would like to extend best wishes and good luck to him for the coming season.
