    Well done Michael196 and Wexford Wheelers lads for getting this together. Clubs putting on races, 2-days at that deserve respect for sourcing sponsors and the huge volunteer manpower required, not to mention the element of financial risk.

    Will keep an eye out for the online entry as I am well up for this.

    Super stuff,shame about stage 3 not been 148km,really looking forward to it anyway,great stuff on putting the race on too

    Reckon you might appreciate a shorter 110 on stage 3, on the day. Will reassess for future events.

    Meanwhile u should be getting ready for the team time trial or the Taghmon Roubaix.

    Well done on putting together this event Michael its gonna be a cracker! Is entry online only or can you sign on on the day? My work situation is a bit unpredictable and I would hate to miss it as I only live down the road.
