Stage 8 - May 26: Phoenix Park Circuit Race, 50 km

Irish rider powers to Ras win

By Shane Stokes, Irishcycling.com

Ciarán Power today completed the final stage of the FBD Milk Rás without incident to land the first international win of his professional career. The Team Ireland Stena Line rider held onto all of his four minutes-plus advantage in the Phoenix Park criterium, sprinting home a close second despite being hampered by gear trouble.

The final stage was won by GB rider Chris Newton, who ended the race second overall and took three stage wins plus the points classification.

As expected, Power was delighted with his performance. "It is great to come home and win this race, particularly after having such a disappointing season last year (he broke a collarbone and suffered a lot of bad luck). "Coming back to Ireland and doing this in front of everyone shows that I am still around and am getting stronger...I am very motivated now for the rest of the season."

Holding a large lead going into the stage, Power needed just to avoid crashes and other misfortune in order to win the race. His Team Ireland Stena Line squad helped limit attacks in the criterium in Dublin's vast Phoenix Park, setting a high pace at the front of the bunch and reeling in anyone strong enough to have a go.

Newton's Great Britain squad took over the pace-setting in the closing stages, lining out the bunch and paving the way for another powerful sprint by the points classification leader. Power was in the perfect position as the gallop began, but gear problems initially hampered his charge. He accelerated noticeably in the closing metres but just failed to pass Newton before the line.

"It was very close", Power said afterwards. "I had trouble getting the bike into the eleven sprocket for the sprint and had to sprint in the saddle until the chain dropped down, with about 30 metres to go. I nearly passed Newton but the line came just a bit too soon. But winning the race overall is the most important thing."

"Ciarán rode well", said Newton. "I thought that when I got a little bit of time back on Wednesday that I might be able to get the jersey back, but he was stronger after that. To tell you the truth, I was suffering a leg problem for the past few days and was on anti-inflammatories. I had a muscle strain and couldn't really pedal properly, so I was more concerned yesterday with the guys behind me. I think the problem is just that I have done three stage races in a row - I will take a break now and things should be fine."

"It was a very enjoyable race here", he continued. "The crowds are amazing, they really cheer the riders on, and I had a good time. It is a bit of a busman's holiday for me but I had fun."

So too, clearly, did Power. "I am very motivated now and looking forward to going back to the team (Navigators). Things are really good over there, I am settling in very well and going better than ever as a result. The US Pro champs series is the next big target. I will build towards them and then come back here to ride the national championships."

Of the other Irish, Eugene Moriarty (Meath Lee Strand Cycleways), Kieran McMahon (Ciarrai Earl of Desmond) and Moriarty"s team-mate Aidan Crowley all sprinted into the top ten on the stage, a cracking performance considering the strength of the field.

Besides Power, best of the Irish overall was Paddy Moriarty. The Dubliner once again showed his stage race pedigree in finishing 13th overall, a brilliant result for a full-time worker and one which saw him win the award for best club rider in the race.

Meath Lee Strand Cycleways dominated the county team category (ahead of Dublin Skip Hire and Ciarrai Earl of Desmond) with their captain, Phil Cassidy, taking the only Irish stage win. Frank O'Leary (Dublin Usher Insulation) was best of the second-category riders in the race, while his team-mate David Peelo got a special meritorious award for his efforts during the week. So too Dublin Iarnrod Eireann's John Peppard, who broke a collarbone and two wrists in a crash on day one, but who still bravely rode on to finish the first stage.
