Mullen Irish TT & Road Champ!

Planet X's junior prodigy Ryan Mullen won both the Irish National TT and Road titles at the weekend- taking both titles with convincing, indisputable victories. The young Irishman from North Wales is on dazzling form, following on from posting the best time last week at the British TT. Mullen, who looks set to ride on the Irish team at the World Championships in Denmark next week, is Planet X's brightest new star…

Harbouring the tail end fury of a hurricane the majestic County Mayo was, let's say, a tad wet and windy. However, despite the conditions a brave few ventured out in the bleak conditions for the TT event. Ryan was off last but within a few miles had caught his minute man, going on to catch all seven riders in front of him finishing the TT four and half minutes ahead of second place McCarthy.

Weather conditions worsened over night and the wind and rain got stronger. The start of the road race saw temperatures drop to 12 degrees- not the most pleasant of conditions for the rugged 100km road race… After 10km the usual suspects Mullen PX, Nulty (Dektec) Wilson (Crabbe Belgium) Ziddane (Stephens Dublin) and McCarthy (Flanders Belgium) were on the attack and distanced themselves from the main bunch.

Ryan saw a few riders not take their turn so realised they were tiring in the conditions so he attacked them after 15 km and did the rest of the race solo some 45 miles over Mayo's exposed twisty roads. After various time checks on the race radio Mullen was 1 minute 20 secs up after twenty odd miles and increased his lead to near 4 minutes…. In the end Mullen won by 2mins and 40 secs over the chasing group of Javin Nulty, Jack Wilson, McCarthy and Ziddane.

Mullen is to travel to Copenhagen in Denmark to represent Ireland in the Junior TT and road race champs with  team mate Jack Wilson, brushing shoulders on the same breakfast table as Nicholas Roach, Dan Martin (Garmin), Matt Bremier (HTC)and McCan (Giant).

Planet X wish him the very best and hope the winning streak continues into the international arena! Go on lad!
