With the discipline of time trialling very much to the fore after the Tour's opening stage and team TT, Irish riders get a chance to show what they are capable of against the clock on the Wicklow Road tomorrow (Saturday). Sorrento Cycling Club is hosting a 10-mile time trial on the new improved surface of the N11 in Wicklow. The start however has been moved to the village of Newtown-Mount-Kennedy just off the N11 about 10miles south of Bray.
It is also an ideal opportunity for those in the Leinster area or further afield with ambitions for higher aspirations in the MDonnelly Junior Tour, which starts next Tuesday in Castlebar with a time trial to flex their muscles.
According to race organiser, Robert Cullen, "the course promises to be a quick one, even though it is not flat and contains several drags, the new surface makes for fast riding."
Sign on is located adjacent to 'Gregory's Garage' and will be open from 10am with racing commencing at 11am.
The race caters for all categories although Under 12s race will be run on a shorter 5 mile (8km) course, all other categories including U14s & U16s will race on the full course. Prizes will be awarded for all categories. For further details please contact the race organiser, Robert Cullen on 087 233 5348.
