We are delighted to report a fantastic Top 5 finish for EPiC coached rider Keith Phillips in Sunday’s North Down GP, the final race in the Irish National Road Race Series. Keith bridged solo to the race winning break and went on from there to finish 5th behind An Post Ras 2016 stage winner Eoin Morton (3rd) and the winner Mark Dowling, the current Irish National Crit Champion.
“I didn’t think I was going to make it at a few points. It looked like team asea didn’t want me over as they kept drilling it very hard. As soon as I got over I had a short rest then tapped through with everyone.”
“I can’t believe I had the legs to attack on the last lap and put that much time into the rest of the breakaway. We nearly caught and lapped the main bunch, finishing 16 minutes a head of them.”
An outstanding crescendo to a season for Keith that has seen him join the 1st Cat ranks, and go on to deliver more results in exhalted company. Richly deserved by a rider who makes all of us at EPiC very proud. Well done Keith.
