Celebrity chef Derry Clarke swaps his chef’s jacket for lycra as he takes on Westport Gran Fondo for Pieta House
Westport Gran Fondo is the latest cycle challenge to hit the headlines for the picturesque town in Mayo. This one day cycling event is the first of its kind in the Republic of Ireland and Westport Gran Fondo aims to become one of the largest cycle events in the country, mixing people's love of cycling with the amazing social aspect of the beautiful town of Westport.

It can be a full-on race, or just a ride and this is what makes it different.

Derry fielded only one of their starting 15 which made us realise from the outset that they did not care about the result, we will only know for sure if Brian McIver got anything out of this game when we see the Derry line up on Sunday.
