Planet X Riders Attack the Tour of Ulster

The Planet X lads competed in this year's TOU minus Martyn Irvine who is still recovering from a injured knee which he hurt in the last stage on the Tour of the North where he won the King of the Mountains jersey.

The team was lead by Roger (the Dodge) Aiken who spent most of the weekend off the front of the peloton. All his aggressive riding was rewarded by a fine 4th place on the final stage.

Dodge said after the final stage "I have been putting in a lot training over the past few weeks to prepare for the RAS, and the TOU formed part of this work. It is always a hard, fast race and I was pleased with my result today and delighted with my new hand-built Carbon 50 wheels which Big Frank let me ride today."
