King Kelly at P&O Easter Tour

Returning almost 20 years after his 1976 win in the event, Ireland's cycling star and former world number one Sean Kelly is confirmed as the guest of honour for the 50th Anniversary P&O Tour of the North in Northern Ireland in two weeks time.

The Carrick on Suir man, whose victory by a slender 10 seconds in 1976 set him up for a successful Pro career in Europe, will be on the start line on Good Friday to flag the 100 plus riders away in the Prologue Hillclimb at Stormont. He will stay with the race throughout Saturday, and be guest of honour at the 50th anniversary gala dinner on Saturday evening. The dinner, reasonably priced at £10 will take place in the Park Avenue Hotel, Belfast with a 6pm start. Tickets are available from Dave Kane Cycles, Madigan Pro-Bike Centre or from Morris Foster on 9058 7889.
