A race with a long history and a past winners list which reads like a ‘who’s who’ of Irish domestic cycling, the 2016 edition of the Noel Teggart Memorial looks to continue that tradition. With only 1 week to go ahead of the Irish National Championships the races will surely attract a very competitive field of riders.
Banbridge CC will be promoting 3 senior races;
The main event for the day will be for A1/A2 riders which will cover 7 laps of the 12 mile circuit for a total distance of approx. 82 miles / 128km and with a £300 cash prize for 1st place, and cash prizes for the top 10 finishers and first A2 rider the demand is expected to be high and attract a very competitive field.
A dedicated race for A3 Senior and Junior riders will cover 6 laps for a total distance of approx. 70 miles/112km. Again a very generous cash prize pot will be on offer for the first 6 riders as well as first woman, and with the usual high demand for A3 places an early entry is advised to secure your place.
The A4 race will cover 5 laps to give the competitors a total distance of approx. 58 miles / 93km and also offer up cash prizes for the top 6 riders as well as first woman.
As usual there will be a programme of youth events on offer for under 16’s, 14’s and 12’s;
The under 16 race will cover 3 laps of the same course as the seniors to give a total distance of approx. 34 miles/54km.
The under 14 race will cover a total distance of approx. 10.5 miles/17km while the under 12’s will face a total race distance of 5 miles/8km.
Prizes for the first 3 rider in each youth race will be on offer as well as a prize for the first girl in each.
All races will commence at 12:00 from Havlock Park, with sign-on available from 10:00 – 11:30. A full event manual will be published in the coming days which will give more detail of the races on offer for those unfamiliar with the course or event from previous years.

Pre-entry for ALL RACES, including youth, is available. If there are spaces still available we will accept entries on the day, however we expect a full field for all senior races so would advise an early entry to avoid disappointment.
Pre-entry for all senior races is £13. If paying on the day entry will be £15. All youth races will be £5.
