Following on from the success of the recent Red Hand Trophy road race Ballymena Road Club are looking forward to the clubís next big promotion Ė the Wallace Caldwell memorial road race - which is scheduled to take place at Galgorm on Saturday 12th April.
The race starts from Galgorm and follows a route to Ahoghill, Portglenone, Maghera, Garvagh, Ringsend and then the tough climb to the Cam forest. Then itís a fast downhill sweep to the outskirts of Limavady before turning right and the even tougher climb up to the Springwell forest. Then itís on towards Coleraine before turning right on to the Garvagh road and left through Aghadowey to the Brown Trout.
The final miles take in Kilrea, the outskirts of Rasharkin and on to the Lisnahunshin road and on through Killyless before descending Ballyconnelly road to the Galgorm finish at Wrightbus, a total distance of 74 miles. The event starts at 11am and usually finishes around 2pm. This is the same finish as was used for the first time last season when Thomas Martin (Eurocycles) was first over the line in 2 hours 54 minutes 15 seconds for the 74 miles event. (2) Brian McCrystal (Cuchullain) (3) Connor Murphy (Eurocycles)
Race organiser David Dougan told me that the entry sold out within 40 minutes of going online so the race will have a full field of eighty riders and a reserve list of ten riders. David Dougan is appealing for race marshalls and feels that help may be in short supply as many club members will be away on the annual trip to Majorca at the time. Others may assume that the organisation of the event is being looked after solely by the race committee, which is not the case.
