UCD-Fitzcycles.ie riders are also enjoying success overseas. Simon Jones, a seasoned campaigner for UCD, is currently in Colorado preparing for his return to Irish racing this May. The third year physics student is on a year’s exchange in the University of Colorado and is taking advantage of the opportunity to train at altitude.
Racing in the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Series, Jones has enjoyed success in a number of races. Jones took 3rd in the opening weekend’s criterium race, followed two weeks later by a win in the 75km St. Patrick’s Day road race. He followed up that weekend with a 2nd place in the next day’s criterium.
