David McCann, the Belfast, Ireland based professional cyclist, has been accepted as a last minute entry into this weekend’s Tour of Ulster, which starts Saturday at Craigavon Lakes at 11.45. David was abroad, riding with his professional squad, Team Giant Asia, when the entry forms were in circulation, but he contacted the organisers on his return, and has now emerged to get a place almost at the last minute.

McCann competes as an individual entry, against some of the top Irish teams, but given his past successes - twice an Irish Champion, FBD Milk Ras winner, and this year second in the Tour of Siam, fourth in the Tour of Iran, and last Sunday, best of the Irish in the Shay Elliott Memorial 100 mile Classic - his addition to the start list will be a major interest and matter of concern to the other main hopefuls.
