Keith first joined the team in the shop as a mechanic in 1989, when he was just 18, and has worked periodically with O’K Cycles on and off, ever since. A keen cyclist all his life, Keith took the decision to race competitively and started consistently achieving top ten finishes, whenever he competed. On St Patrick’s Day, 2016, he won the hotly contested Kiely Cup, finishing first in a race that culminated just yards from the same spot where Sean Kelly began his historical Time-Trial stage from Carrick to Clonmel, eleven years earlier, in the first edition of the Nissan Classic. He retired from racing at the top, following his success (as he constantly reminds his fellow club mates!). Keith is currently an active member of Carrick Wheelers Cycling Club, one of the most highly regarded clubs in Ireland.
