Last week West Down Wheelers’ youngest rider Brandon Douglas headed down to Ennis to compete in the very tough Junior Tour of Ireland in his club’s blue colours.
Make no mistake about it, to take this on some of the top junio teams around was some undertaking but Brandon has come on leaps and bounds this year since he joined the Wheelers. The event consisted of a week’s stage racing on his own and Brandon showed maturity above his years.
Not only did he ride it, he held his own all week and he’s surely heading for some very good results in the coming years.
The Wheelers as a whole are absolutely delighted with him. The club are very pleased to have riders Brandon, Paul Wilkinson, Ian Weir, Dave Frizzell and Darren Lynas to help give the club some fantastic puclicity.
