P&O Irish Sea – Tour of the North

The Tour of the North saw the final stage played out on April 17.

Going into the fifth and final stage Ryan Connor (Ballymena RC-Scott Rooftiles) held the lead, but he found himself losing his grip on the yellow jersey as riders went ahead on the road. He was able to recover closing time gaps to win the GC.

The tough County Down stage was won by Andy Proffitt of London and Essex club Arctic/Shorter Rochford RT. Proffitt featured in a breakaway and won the sprint to the line ahead of Neil Switnenbank (MK Cycles-Lancashire RC)
