The Irish team pursuiters have claimed the silver medal at the UCI Nations Cup in Hong Kong

After putting in their best ever performance, and smashing their own national record, in the opening stages of the team pursuit at the UCI Nations Cup in Hong Kong this morning, the Irish have claimed silver in the event.

They went up against New Zealand, who were by far the fast in qualifying, in the gold medal ride-off and were beaten to the top spot on the podium by the Kiwis.

However, that performance by the Irish – Kelly Murphy, Lara Gillespie, Alice Sharpe and Mia Griffin – was an incredible one and comes at exactly the right time, as they were already closing in on Olympic qualification for Paris this summer.

More to come.
