Ellen McDermott is local cyclist who has been making her name on the European cycling stage, ever since winning a bronze medal at the Elite National Road Race Championships in Wexford in 2017. KMK Metals Recycling has announced that the metals and e-waste recycling company will continue its sponsorship of Ellen for 2021 and management and staff wish her continued success next year.
Here is a round-up of 2020 in Ellen’s own words.
I kicked off the 2020 racing season with great legs after a tough training camp with the Isorex Ladies Team. First up was the Belgian Classics and it was great to see that my switch to full-time bike rider was paying off.
When we all had to travel back home, initially I thought we'd be back on the continent in a couple of weeks but as it happens I never made it back to Belgium because of the cancellation of my races due to COVID-19.
HOWEVER all was not lost, the Irish calendar saved the day and I was so grateful to get the opportunity to race in the Irish Championship stripes at Mondello Park. Then after winning the Leinster Championships I raced to a Bronze medal in the Irish National Road Race in the green spots of Team Boompods.
Amazingly the highlights are currently on Eurosport on demand and it's a great show, a credit to the growth of cycling in Ireland! I can't wait for the 2021 season and the challenges it will bring so massive thanks to KMK Metals Recycling for their continued support!
