Cian was really pleased about receiving a personal invitation to Olympia in London later this month. The Irish Federation only gets one spot for the World Cup shows, and Team Manager Robert Splaine has divided that amongst the riders, giving the Olympia selection on this occasion to Billy Twomey.
But in a positive development today, Cian received a personal invite from Olympia to appear there before Christmas. Cian said tonight: "I was thrilled to have received the invitation to be at Olympia this year. It's one of my favourite shows in the world. And for me it's especially important to put your best foot forward when competing there and doing as well as you can, for the show gets massive tv and radio coverage which gives us as riders unquantifiable benefits through the exposure."
