The First Elite National Championships of 2021 takes place at Sundrive Velodrome this Saturday (July 10th).
Defending Champion Lydia Boylan will not be defending her crown in what is regarded as one of the toughest events on the Track Calendar .
Deirbhle Ivory (UCD Cycling Club) will go in as pre race favourite after her recent win in the Duane Delaney Omnium .
Deirbhle is sure to face stiff opposition from Gabriella Homer (Team Rupecleaning Champion Lubricants) Caoimhe O’Brien(Weston Homes-Torelli-Assure) and Jennifer Neenan (VIB Natural Greatness) , however with both of the domestic based Track Teams (Sundrive Track Team / Arcane Women’s Team) entering four women each in the event, the International riders might not have it all their own way.
