Edward "Eddie" Dunbar (born 1 September 1996) is an Irish road racing cyclist, who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Team Ineos.[2]

Career[edit]

Born in Banteer, Dunbar joined Team Sky in September 2018, after his previous team Aqua Blue Sport – whom he had joined at the start of 2018[3] – encountered financial issues, and with approval from the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), agreed to an early release from his contract.[4] In May 2019, he was named in the startlist for the 2019 Giro d'Italia and came third in Stage 12 of the race.[5][6]
