Kelly Murphy is a professional road and track cyclist for Cycling Ireland. The national record holder for Individual Pursuit and Team Pursuit and two-time national champion in Individual Time Trial, Kelly ranked #1 in the world in Track Cycling Individual Pursuit in 2021. To win the 2019 national championships ITT she averaged 42.96 km/h, while her 45.45 km/h average at the 2019 European Road Cycling Championships took her into a breakthrough 10th place to become the first Irish woman to break into the Top 10 at an international road event.
The six-time Ironman Hawaii winner has calculated that the Pho3nix Sub8 Project, powered by Zwift will provide conditions for an even faster time than expected.
2022 will be a year of two seasons for Lucy Charles-Barclay. This first half aiming to defend her Ironman 70.3 world title, and then be the first to go Sub8. The second half, become the Ironman world champion in St. George and Kona, and perhaps get on the road to the Paris Olympics.
