Omega Pharma - Quick Step Cycling Team rider Matt Brammeier was victorious for a third time at the Irish National Road Championship on Sunday.
His victory brings the national road titles for the team in 2012 to four.
"It's my third title in a row but it wasn't easy," Brammeier said about his win in Ireland. "From the start there were a lot of attacks. I managed to follow all the attacks. In the final lap we were with three guys left. At 2km from the finish I attacked, and I went alone. It's always a good feeling when you can win alone."
