Eoghan Clifford certainly marked his arrival on the para-cycling scene with a bang as in 2014, which was his first year to compete in international Paralympic sport, he stormed hs way to a world title by winning the Men’s C3 Road Race at the UCI Para-Cycling Road World Championships in the USA, marking a sensational World Championship debut for the rider who had previously won gold in the MC3 Time Trial earlier that week.

In 2015, the reigning world champion continued his impressive form, winning gold yet again in the Men’s C3 Time Trial at the UCI Para-Cycling Road World Cup in Switzerland and went on to add a bronze medal a few days later. The 2016 edition of the UCI Para-Cycling Road World Cup saw further success for Eoghan. He won gold in the Time Trial and followed that up with a silver medal in the Road Race.
