The Cycling Ulster Executive would like to extend our condolences to Gabriel Bell’s family, friends and his club mates in Emyvale CC following his death in recent days.

As well as completing numerous leisure events throughout Ireland, Gabriel also travelled abroad to take on the Majorca 312, The Fred Whitton Challenge in the UK and cycled the French Alps.
