Masters and U23 added to Leinster CycloCross Championships for 2019

Scott Orwell have announced that they have agreed with Cycling Leinster to include Women’s U23 and Masters (W40) Championship categories for the 2019 Leinster Cyclocross Championships.

This brings to six, the number of championship categories for Women. The Under 14’s and Under 16’s will race for as close as possible to 30 mins. The Juniors, U23, Elite and Masters Women will race for as close as possible to 40 mins.

As the Juniors, U23 and Masters start and end at the same time as the Elite, they are also eligible for the Elite championship title, as well as their own championship title.
