Connor McConvey had a strong performance in yesterday’s Maremma Cup MTB race in Italy, finishing 11th out of 110 starters and taking the prize for first under 23 rider.

The Felt International rider ended the race seven minutes and 19 seconds behind the victor Marco Aurelio Fontana (Cannondale Factory Racing). Fontana’s team-mate Roel Paulissen was 39 seconds back while Moritz Milatz (Multivan Merida Biking Team) was one minute two seconds back in third.

McConvey had a dominant win in the under 23 classification. After nearly two hours of racing, he was three minutes and 16 seconds ahead of runner-up Samuele Porro (CBE Merida ASD) and a full nine minutes eleven seconds in front of Johannes Schweiggl (Team Silmax AMD Merida ASD). Apart from fourth-placed Lorenzo Martelli (Torpado 4US), the other youth riders were all lapped.

McConvey is Ireland’s most promising MTB rider and earned a contract with the Felt team for 2009. He will compete this season alongside former Olympic champion Miguel Martinez, who was fourth yesterday.
