Campbell steps down

By Shane Stokes,

Frank Campbell's tenure as a Cycling Ireland national team manager has come to an end with the news that he has advised CI of his decision to cease acting in this role.

Campbell proved to be a successful manager during his time, achieving successes such as the national team's domination of the 2004 FBD Milk Rás. He played an important part in the Team Ireland operation in Belgium and also assisted Irish internationals in their efforts to achieve strong results abroad and thus secure professional contracts.

Campbell's resignation is the latest in recent months. CI President PJ Nolan, Mick and Delores Usher of the women's commission, track commission President Philip Collins plus several others have also stood down from their positions, leading to a drain in volunteers from the sport.

CI has not yet announced who will replace Campbell in the driving seat of the Team Ireland car this season. A seven-man national squad will compete in the Tour de Langkawi later this month.
