Between the Maiden City Crit and the Foyle Three Day, I'd say the city is used to it. Would be decent crowds maybe? I did the Three Day in 2017 (the one the horse joined) and I'm surprised they didn't use some of those routes. Gruelling.

Somewhere in the back of my mind I recall reading that there would be highlights on TV later the following week for this?

I thought they were going to televise it live-ffs-highlights later-that sucks, we have dunbar and Bennett, 2 world class riders in our nationals, not since Roche and Kelly have we had such a great field. This is so disappointing.

Dunbar, Dunne, Bennett, Mullen. No Roche or Martin - I'd presume they'll have a tilt at the Tour so holding off for that.

What part of the course would be a good place to view it hopefully near a pub

I'm heading up myself - don't know the area either.

I'm thinking of watching a lap or two at the first hill at Chapel Road and will probably heading towards the finishing straight for the rest and like yourself, try and find a bar. Looks like there's a few on Shipquay Street.

The route:

Ship Quay Street , a few good sized bars on the left side on the way up . Claude's Cafe at the top of the street on the right is a good choice too for food & coffee etc .

Should be a good days racing

I think it'll suit Dunbar and Dunne a little bit more.

A few short but sharp 'hills' where they can do a bit of damage.

I don't know now I saw this on Sam's twitter from a Hammer Series event last month. Hills will favour some of the others for sure but he looked to be having a bit of craic on these.
