Defending Champion Lydia Boylan (Un-Attached Leinster) will be the favourite In what is regarded as one of the toughest events on the Track Calendar .

She will face opposition from the Sundrive Track Team trio, with National Team Pursuit Champion Jennifer Neenan and new signing Claire Ní Reachtagáin (Former Irish National Track Team) sure to go into the final event with a chance of an overall victory.
