Mark Scanlon, the former junior world road race champion, has returned to the Irish peloton and has taken a placing in his first outing.

The Sligo man, who was world champion in 1998, rode the Lakeland Open Race in Irvinestown, Co Fermanagh, last evening in the colours of Botttecchia Racing Club.

Not content with simply being back in the bunch again, now aged 39 years and looking fit, Scanlon got into the mix in the race and competed for the prizes.
