David O'Loughlin will make his debut for the An Post Sean Kelly team in tomorrow's five-day Tour of Algarve (February 18-22). He was still racing track events, including the World Cup race in Copenhagen last weekend, where he won silver in the individual pursuit.

O'Loughlin is looking forward to switching his attention to the road. "My confidence is high after my recent performance in Copenhagen on the track and I've known for quite a while that this would be my debut for the An Post team so I've been looking forward to it," O'Loughlin said.

"We have a strong team of riders here and hopefully we can continue the early form that the rest of the team has shown from the two opening races this year, but it is a tough four days ahead of us."

O'Loughlin will be joined by fellow Irishmen Paidi O'Brien and Stephen Gallagher, along with five Belgian riders.

The An Post Sean Kelly team will head to the Tour of Algarve with: David O'Loughlin, Stephen Gallagher, Paidi O'Brien, Niko Eeckhout, Jef Peeters, Kenny Lisabeth, Benny De Schrooder and Steven Van Vooren
