Draynes Farm Bobby Crilly Classic Open For Pre-Entry This Wednesday.

On Saturday 11th June 2016, Phoenix Cycling Club will be hosting The Bobby Crilly Classic which will be kindly sponsored by Draynes Farm again this year, visit the Draynes Farm Website.

There will be a slight change in course this year but the iconic Divis mountaintop finish remains.  However, an unfortunate consequence of the course change means that the number of races we can run at the event must be limited.  Therefore we have decided to run two races; a combined A2/3 race and an A4 race.  There will be no race for A1's this year.
Details of the races are:

The A2/3 race will be six laps of the circuit (which will be familiar to anyone who has ridden the Phoenix GP) then up the climb, approximately 59 miles.

The A4 race will be three laps of the circuit then up the climb, approximately 42 miles.

Prizes will be awarded down to fifth place and there will be a woman’s prize in each race as well as a prize for the highest unplaced A3 in the A2/3 race.

The key details are:
Pre entry via Entrycentral will be open from 7.00pm on Wednesday 18th May and will close at midnight on Tuesday 7th June.

Entry fee via EntryCentral is £15 for senior riders and £10 for juniors (please note juniors will have to pay £15 on Entrycentral and can get the £5 difference back at sign-on due to difficulties with two prices on Entrycentral, sorry for the hassle). Entry fee on the day is £20, £10 for juniors, subject to spaces being available. No refunds to riders withdrawing will be issued.

Sign on in the Lamh Dhearg centre on the Hannahstown Rd, Belfast. BT17 0LZ. Paste 54.5877,-6.036258 into google maps for a location. No one day licenses will be issued.

Sign-on opens at 9:00 and will close at 10:00. The neutralized roll out to Nutts Corner will begin at 10:05, with the racing starting at Nutts Corner at 10:30.
