Mark Downey and Irish track team coach David Muntaner Juaneda just before the young Irishman’s winning ride at the UCI World Cup in Cali.


Mark Downey has been hitting the headlines in recent days, winning his second career UCI World Cup gold medal in the points race in Cali, Colombia.

However, while he’s gotten plenty of great coverage we were yet to see any footage of his win.

He’s put together this fantastic behind the scenes clip, below, featuring his preparation before the race, followed by race action, celebration and podium ceremony.

The racing is filmed from the stands but it’s still quite good and really captures his hard riding throughout, including his long range attack to gain a lap and take victory.
