The Irish national track championships will be held this weekend, August 20-21, at Eamonn Ceannt Park, Sundrive Road, Kimmage, Dublin. Racing starts at 11am both days.
Supported by Terry Dolan frames and Cyclelogical, the event looks set to be a successful on in the light of last weekend's turnout for a charity event on behalf of Our Lady's Hospital for Sick Children in Crumlin, where a capacity crowd watched Malcolm Goggin attempt to break the Irish record for the 500m standing start. Irish track commissioner Aideen Collard has been working hard behind the scenes to make sure the championships are just as successful.
Riders must be accredited, have their own track bike and a Cycling Ireland Licence to race. A limited number of small-framed bikes are available for loan to women and juniors.
