Opening the Irish road racing season, the Banbridge CC promoted Travers Engineering Annaclone GP will take place on Saturday 18th February with pre-entry opening on Monday 6th February at 6pm.
Two races will be on offer for competitors; a handicapped race catering for A1, A2 and A3 categories and a mass start A4 support race.
The ‘A’ race for A1, 2 & 3’s will be 6 laps of the traditional circuit for a total race distance of approx. 47.5mi / 76.5km. The ‘B’ race for A4 men and A3/A4 women will cover 4 laps of the same course giving a total distance of approx. 31.5mi / 51km. Please note ‘A3’ women have the choice to enter either the ‘A’ or ‘B’ race. Both races will be restricted to a maximum of 80 riders.

Entry will be via the Cycling Ireland GoMembership online pre-entry system at a cost of £13 per rider. A link to the pre-entry will be made available both on the Banbridge CC website and Cycling Ireland on Monday 6th.
For the ‘A’ race we will be reserving 30 places for A1 & A2 category riders for a limited time until midnight Sunday 12th February, after which all places will be open to all category riders (A1, A2 & A3). The ‘B’ race will be open to A4 category riders only. Entry for both races will close at midnight on Tuesday 14th February. A reserve list will be operated for both events in the scenario of all places being filled.
