Racing commences this Saturday

15 February 2015
There is likely to be a change of venue for this Saturday’s Annaclone GP due to road works on the circuit.
Banbridge Cycling Club has been forced to seek an alternative circuit away from the original course. However at the time of writing a suitable alternative circuit hadn’t been finalised.
The club advises entrants to check the Cycling Ulster web site for confirmation of the new circuit and HQ. For further information contact race secretary Aaron Wallace via aarwallace@gmail.com or 07713 147 968.

Sunday’s action is the George Rooney Phoenix Grand Prix, sponsored by McConvey Cycles of Belfast.
Entries close on the 18th February. As entry is on a first come, first served basis with a limit on the entries for each race, riders are urged to submit their entry as soon as possible.
This year sign-on will return to the Crumlin Community and leisure centre, from 9:30am, where there will be full changing and showering facilities available as well as refreshments before and after. The sign-on fee is £12 for everyone except juniors who pay £6.
All riders must have the appropriate Cycling Ireland licence card or print out from the CI website. 
The circuit will be the usual Nutt’s Corner - Seven Mile Straight - Long Rig Rd course finishing at the top lay-by and there will be five races, with the Women, over 50's and A4's starting at 10:45am. The A1 / A2 race will be handicapped and will be 6 laps in distance, approximately 50 miles. 
There will be a separate A3 race over 5 laps, 42 miles. 
The A4 race will be a scratch race and will be 4 laps in distance, 34 miles.
The women’s race is the first round of the Ulster Women’s Road Race League. This race will be handicapped and will be 3 laps in distance, 25 miles.
50+ Master Race will also be 3 laps.
