Hanna and O’Loughlin take Inaugural DC Cycle Cup Races

Cycling Ulster's newest club, Carrickmacross CC, proved they were serious in their intention to promote cycle racing in Ulster when they hosted the DC Cycle Cup on Sunday. The event was held prior to the arrival of the FBD Insurance Ras in Carrickmacross. With the town completely sealed off to traffic it was like attending a race in Europe where people seem to appreciate the efforts that riders make in competing in open races. A full programme of events was on offer from youth through to seniors, women and vets.… Read more

Easton Takes Mayfair Grand Prix Again

Saturday's Mayfair Grand Prix on the Ballynure circuit saw last year's victor, Denis Easton (Maryland Wheelers), pip Glen Kinning (Castlereagh CC)on the line to take his second win in this race.

A group consisting of Tommy Wilson (Ballymena RC), Denis Easton (Maryland Wheelers), Tony McConville (Wheels in Motion/Fuji Bikes), Glen Kinning (Castlereagh CC), Fraser Duncan (Northern Dave Kane), Matthew Ward (Phoenix CC), Wilie Hamilton (AudiEast Antrim) and Kieran O'Neill (Classic Walls) kept the pace high and soon opened up a considerable gap on the main field.… Read more


Summer International Track Programme

With a restricted budget for International competition, it has been decided that a maximum of 4 riders chosen from across all disciplines and age groups will be selected to represent Team Ireland at the European Track Championships in Italy, 20th – 24th July.
In line with the new initiatives, the developmental group of riders will be given greater priority in close selection cases. Due to logistics, and the fact that the European’s will be held on an outdoor 400m track, Junior riders WILL NOT be expected to travel to an indoor track to meet selection criteria and thus performances judged to be of an equal standard on an outdoor track will suffice.… Read more
