Mulloy and Dolan La Solitaire Urgo Le Figaro

The race rookies will be competing over short sprint legs of 1-4 days with little time for recovery between legs.

“Any lapse in concentration can result in at best loss of places, at worst, well’ it’s not worth thinking about,” remarked Tom Dolan.

Joan Mulloy said they were “really excited” about the race:

“We can’t wait to get out and compete against the best. We’re both so proud to be backed by Irish sponsors and supporters. My campaign is led by Taste the Atlantic – A Seafood Journey and Tom’s by Smurfit Kappa.”
