McLaughlin hoping to sign off in style

Updated: October 9, 2012

Ronan McLaughlin will line out for the An Post Sean Kelly team for the final time this season when he competes in a seven man team at the Sluitingsprijs Putte-Kapellen (1.1) in Belgium.

The Donegal native will hope to cap off a magnificent second half of the season as he lines out alongside his Belgian team mates Niko Eeckhout, Pieter Ghyllebert, Joren Segers, Niels Wytinck, Kenneth Van Bilsen and Roy Jans.

McLaughlin proved a constant thorn in the sides of the so called ‘big’ teams at the recent Tour of Britain, earning numerous plaudits for his aggressive attacking style. His form was rewarded by a call up to Team Ireland at the UCI Road World Championships in Limburg, Netherlands.

Team manager Kurt Bogaerts is hoping McLaughlin and the team can end another excellent season on a high.

“This season has been great for the development of many of our riders. I’ve been particularly pleased with how Ronan and the other Irish riders have progressed. Tomorrow’s race is an opportunity to finish the season with a good result against a strong field.”

Following tomorrow’s race the team will take a break until December when they return for a pre season training camp in Calpe, Spain.
