On Sunday 3rd April all roads lead to the sunny South East as Dungarvan CC host the 6th edition of their Cyclesports GP races.

For the first time this year the Dungarvan CC Cyclesports GP program will include a stand-alone women’s race, and at only 36 km in length we reckon this one is ideal for those keen to try open racing for the first time!

All Cyclesports GP races start and finish on the R672 on the outskirts of Dungarvan, to the North West, and the women’s race is one lap of the 36km triangular circuit.

The only significant interruption to this largely downhill (see elevation profile below) circuit is the short sharp kick up to the finish line….

…. so this relatively short race really is a wonderful opportunity for riders new to open racing to build up their competitive experience! Equally, the more experienced rider will see this Cyclesports GP race as chance to grab their first win of the season!

Sign-on: 9 am – 11:30 am, at Dungarvan United AFC, Kilrush Park, Dungarvan.

Race Start : women’s race will start at 12:30am….

** be aware that the Start / Finish line is 5km from the sign-on location, so give yourself plenty of time to spin from one to the other… use those 5km as a pre-race warm-up / cool-down! **
