Biography[edit]

McCann was the Irish national road race champion in 2000, 2001 and 2006. He has also won the Irish national time trial championships a record 6 times (2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2009 & 2010).

In 2005, McCann captured the overall title at the Tour de Korea. In 2006 he won the Tour of Indonesia; 2 stages in the Tour of Thailand; 1 stage at the Tour of Qinghai Lake and 1 stage in the Tour of Azerbaijan. He represented Northern Ireland at the Commonwealth Games time trial, finishing 5th.

On 20 September 2009, McCann broke Chris Boardman’s long-standing British 25 mile time trial record in Port Talbot. Later that week, he finished in 11th in the World Championships Elite Time Trial in Mendrisio, Switzerland. His time of 1:01:36.35 was 3 minutes 40 seconds behind the gold medallist Fabian Cancellara. This was McCann's best ever performance at the World Championships. He was UCI ranked 31st on the 2009 Asian Tour, and ranked 4th for the 2010 season with 298.66 points after 11 wins.

He was UCI ranked 42nd on the 2011 UCI Asia Tour (75 pts), thanks mainly to 2nd place GC finishes in the Jelajah Malaysia and in the Tour de Taiwan.

He rode on the Irish three man team for the 2010 World Championships alongside Nicolas Roche and Matt Brammeier, finishing 68th.[2] He won a team pursuit bronze with Northern Ireland at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, and followed this up with 5th in the Commonwealth Road Race.
