Oisin O'Callaghan wins World Cup in the Rainbow Jersey


Junior World Champion, Oisin O'Callaghan has continued his rich vein of form claiming gold at the UCI MTB World Cup in Maribor, Slovenia.

O'Callaghan become the first Irish rider to win a Downhill mountain bike world title when he won last weekend. The titles allowed the Irishman to wear the coveted rainbow jersey for the first of eight rounds in the UCI Mountain bike World Cup Series.

O'Callaghan qualified fastest and backed up that performance in the finals to claim the win in a time of 3:20.292. His margin of victory less than one hundred of a second over the 2.1-kilometre downhill descent.

Daniel Slack of Great Britain had to settle for second place for the second week in a row. Nuno Reis of Portugal was 3 seconds back in 3rd.

Irish downhill racer Christopher Cumming showed the strength in depth of Irish mountain biking with a 10-place finish in a time of 3:28.370. Cummings will be disappointed by his 21st place finish at the Junior World Championships but looks primed for a strong showing in the UCI World Cup Series.
