Ryan Mullen (born 7 August 1994) is an Irish professional racing cyclist. He joined the UCI World Tour team Cannondale–Drapac for the 2016 season.


Mullen attended Ysgol Eirias in Colwyn Bay, North Wales and was a member of Rhos on Sea Cycling Club, the same club as Team Sky general manager and former head of the British cycling team Dave Brailsford. In February 2014, Mullen finished 4th in the Elite Men's Individual Pursuit at the UCI track world championships in Cali, Colombia. At the 2014 Irish National championships in Multyfarnham, West Meath, Mullen became the youngest ever Irish Elite Road Race champion. On the same weekend he also won the U23 Individual Time Trial and Road Race titles.

He took the silver in the under-23 time trial at the 2014 UCI Road World Championships in Ponferrada, finishing half a second behind winner Campbell Flakemore of Australia.[2] He rode at the 2015 UCI Track Cycling World Championships, where he came seventh in the individual pursuit.[3][4] Mullen won the Irish national time trial championship in 2015, becoming the youngest ever rider to take the title.[5] In August 2015, it was announced that he had signed to ride in the UCI WorldTour for Cannondale from 2016.[6] Mullen rode with Cannondale-Garmin as a stagiaire in the 2015 Tour of Britain, then competed in under-23 time trial at the 2015 world championships. He was at a disadvantage because he did his ride in wet conditions and finished eleventh, 49 seconds behind the winner, Mads Schmidt.[7]
