CIARA DOOGAN’S FANTASTIC 2015 means she’s been named on Stickybottle’s 12 best Irish performances abroad in 2015
The Gortahork native (pictured above second left) has enjoyed a fine year in the saddle and will be looking for more of the same in 2016.
“Ciara Doogan is one of the best young riders to emerge in recent years and we’re right to get excited about the young Donegal woman’s talent,” writes Brian Canty on stickybottle.com
It’s not easy being the sole Irish rider in a major championships but she looked right at home in Estonia in August when she battled her way around the 74-kilometre race, finishing 25th in the same time as the winner.
A month later at the World Championships she finished 28th in the time-trial and 58th in the road race.
For good measure, she was 5th in the points race at the European track championships.”
