The Dublin born Irish hero received a warm welcome from some very surprised CRC shoppers and staff alike as he made it into the store during the closing days of the 21 Stages / 21% off promotion.

Ahead of starting pre-season training with Leinster Rugby this coming Monday Brian was delighted to be presented with a Vitus Venon bike by Retail Manager Neil McGuigan and Category Manager Geoff McComb.

''The training ground car park is getting very competitive," comments Brian. "The big rush in the morning is to get in and get a bike rack space! More and more of the team have taken to cycling of the last while, at times there can be up to fifteen of us cruising in. With more of us taking on a bit of cycling as part of our training or even just for fun, I'm really looking forward to showing off my new wheels to the boys in the team."

Brian recieved a full bike fit with his new bike at our flagship store where resident road specialist Stephen Prentice was on hand to dial his bike in for him. "It's not every Monday morning you get to meet an Irish Rugby legend!" said Stephen. "Despite being at the peak of fitness as a pro athlete, it's just as important to make sure that Brian gets a proper bike fit so he can enjoy riding his new bike. He's a great guy."

Store Manager, Neil McGuigan, welcomed Brian to the store giving him a full guided tour after his bike fit. More pics to follow!
