Bernard Hinault meets Currow CC

Image

Steve Key and Myself travelled to Clifden on sat to participate in the 2012 Tour of Connemara,The route was a lumpy 90 miles around Connemara in sweltering 26 degree heat but was very enjoyable.We also had the pleasure of meeting the great Bernard Hinault who posed for a photo before the event.I dont think the day challenged a cyclist who won 5 TDF,3 Giros and 2 Vueltas but seemingly he thoroughly enjoyed the day and didnt know why everyone complained about the Irish weather.
