Vote for Rás na nÓg!

We’re delighted to announce that Rás na nÓg has been nominated in the “Best Competitive Event” category in the 2017 Cycling Ireland Membership Awards.

Now in its 10th year, Ireland’s premier youth stage race continues to give our young riders a chance to compete competitively on the road, many of them for the first time. This event is a breeding ground that allows our youth riders to develop, and helps propel them towards the upper echelons of Irish Cycling. The event is run by Ger Campbell in a professional and efficient manner and is a credit to cycling in Ireland.

Voting is now open on the Cycling Ireland Website and is open to all Cycling Ireland members.

And while you’re there, make sure to cast your vote for our neighbours Cuchulainn CC, worthy nominees in the “Club of the Year” category.
