In 2017 Eddie developed on his notoriety in the U23 ranks by winning the U23 Tour of Flanders solo by over 50 seconds, to date it's the biggest win of his career. This result attracted the attention of several teams however Eddie was always excited to join Aqua Blue, a team with roots in his home county of Cork, Ireland. Eddie is a strong climbing and TT talent and hotly tipped by us to become one of the elite riders on the UCI WorldTour in years to come.
The 2016 season was not without it's difficulties with Eddie crashing in the first half of the season and injuring his shoulder in April putting him out of action for an important period of racing that Eddie was to be in top condition for. After an intense recovery period Eddie bounced back to win Stage 7 of his National Tour the An Post Rás and finish his season in good condition. 2017 should see Eddie step up again and continue to progress and hone his talent under the guidance of his team.
