    Before: Friday before the race, Daragh_ welding his bike in a garage in Wexford town

    After: Sunday evening, Daragh_ rolling through finish line, just ahead of the chasing group, lighting a cigar with a blowtorch,
    "I love it when a plan comes together"

    There is no plan B

    Stage 1 is a 60 K ( A4) or 80 K (A2/A3) using the Frank o Rourke Circuit.

    Stage 2 is a 4 km hill TT to the top of Concorde from Larkins Cross.

    Stage 3 is an 80K ( A4 ) and a 110K A2/A3.

    In addition, an Under 16 Race will occur on the Frank O Rourke Circuit on the Saturday. On Line entry will be used.

    The event will occur on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th of August, with Race HQ at the Maldron Hotel and the race starts based at Camross Hall.

    If somebody has Strava/Garmin links for the Stages could they post them ?

    Would love to do this, not many 3-stage events open to A4s. Fair play for organising it. Pity is I'm flying to Toronto for work on the Sunday, so could only do the 2 Saturday stages.

    Are there A4 ranking points for the Saturday road stage on its own, or are there only points for overall placings (which would rule me out naturally)?

    for those of you local enough, we also have a Team Time trial in July coupled with the local tri club, a separate TT league and Wexford county TT champs.

    Hi Micheal, any info on Team TT, love to get a team together and give it a bash.

    The first 300 meters after the flat section is tough , don't be overgeared at the hairpin .

    Really interested in making a trip down for this weekend, all the way from the corner of the North Weessst.
    Thing is currently on 8 points in A4, if I register for A4 2 day, and get upgraded within the next couple of races, can I get into A3 or is that my entry gone on A4 and then if theres space in A3 pay again?
    You could say don't race until Wexford, but here I'm not going to be like that. And I also aint holding back if I see the white line.
    Does this pre-registering not turn lads off when your close to upgrade?

    Would be very unfair to ask you to pay again if you upgrade.

    Pay once and if your grade changes in the mean time, let me know.

    If u register as A4 but become A3, you can race as A3 with no additional charges.


    This race is for racing and bringing back a race that has been absent for more than 20 years.


    PM me your real name so I can flag.

    A4's filling faster than A3's as expected, so I would expect A3 slots to be available.
