This race is steeped in history, and has a long list of prestigious winners. It was one of the highlights on our race program.

The race was five stages over five days, 135km to 175km.

The team was; Mckay, Wood, Hawkins, Harding, Coukham.

The race started on the outskirts of Dublin and headed south west through Ireland. It was a great race for our young riders, Mckay took our top result finishing fourth on the toughest 172km stage on the third day. Misfortune struck Hawkins and Harding, both crashing on day two, and unable to continue on day three. Mckay finished 15th over all, with Joe 25th, George 26th. The lads learned a lot from this race, and will take this experience to future stage races.
