Errigal Youth Event and Emyvale Reliability Trial

errErriagal CC has decided to run this series in order that their youth cyclists would have a number of races in Ulster to attend races within easy travelling distance and to cut down on the necessity to travel great distance in order to get racing experience.

The club would welcome young riders from other parts of the country to come along and take part.

We would encourage other Ulster clubs to follow Errigal's example and promote youth racing. It is particularly beneficial when clubs promote stand alone youth events. This gives our young riders a day for thenselves rather than an addendum to senior racing.

errigalThe more races that Ulster clubs promote for Ulster youths the greater will be the benefit in years to come. If any othe club would like to follow Errigal's example please contact me at marianlamb@ulstercyclingnews.com for further information.

The first race in the Errigal Youth Series  will take place on Sunday 2nd March. Details as follows...

Sign On at the Heritage Centre Gartan (10am - 10.45am)
Course: 3.5 mile lap.
First Race Off will be the U12's (2 Laps) at 11am followed by U14's (3 or 4
laps) then U16's (6 laps)

Please Note - There will be a gear check for all competitors.


Emyvale CC Reliability Trial Sunday 23rd February

After the highs of last weekend Emyvale CC  is hosting its annual reliability cycle from Emyvale on Sunday morning 23rd February.

Sign on is in Emyvale Leisure Centre from 9.00am and the first group will leave at 10 .00am. As was done  last year if the numbers are high there will be  three separate groups each with a club leader.

It should be a good event and always attracts cyclists from different parts of Ulster.

The route will take the cyclists from Emyvale to Monaghan turning for Middletown, Armagh, Caledon, Aughnacloy and finishing at Silver Hill Foods Emyvale.
