An Post Boys in Green give stamp of approval to Westmeath support

The An Post Sean Kelly cycling team headed back to their team base in Brussels this week, but not before they sent a message of thanks to the people of Westmeath for the great support they received when the FBD Ras passed through on Sunday May 24, during Stage 8 of the eight-stage race.

“We were blown away to be honest by the way the crowd got behind us, there was a big cheer for us when we came into Westmeath before heading onto Skerries for the final phase of the stage, and it really does make a huge difference,” said An Post team member and Irish Olympian David O’Loughlin.

“There is no doubt that the warm welcome we receive from the people here at home makes a huge difference to us, compared to racing abroad in Spain or France,” said O’Loughlin. “The encouragement from the people of Westmeath was fantastic, I needed the extra boost that day as well to recover after a crash I'd had.”

The An Post team went on to have a great finish to the Ras, winning both the King Of the Mountains (O’Loughlin ) and the Points competition (Niko Eeckhout ).
