Double FBD Insurance Rás winner Chris Newton will be one of the speakers at the Irish National cycling coaching forum, which will be held on Saturday, January 14 in Kilcullen community school.

Those present will get an invaluable insight into what it takes to be both a Rás champion and a top track rider. Newton is both an Olympic medallist and double track world champion, and will be sharing some of the tips of the trade with those at the forum. There will also be talks by other speakers, including a presentation on using heart monitors and power measurement systems in training.

All are welcome to the forum, which begins with a training spin at 10 am on the 14th. The talks will begin after lunch. More details will follow closer to the event. Alternatively, contact Will Byrne at 0035386 8047839.
