Brian Bruton, who is far too youthful to call a GCH stalwart yet, represented Ireland in May this year at the European Masters Road Race Championships which were held in the Algarve in Portugal.

Now Brain may not have come home with a tan, but he did come home having come 4th in his Age Category )35 in the 10k Road Race….. a massive achievement Brian!! Congrats.
