In the early hours of tomorrow morning IrishCycleSport Development Project , 6 Junior riders and 2 mentors will be converging on Dublin airport to catch a 6.30 am flight to Brussels to compete in Les Printanieres Liegeoises Junior Race in Retinne Belgium this coming Sunday .
This is IrishCycleSport’s second trip arranged through their Development Project and this time will feature Riders selected from the regional Cycling Leinster bank of riders.
The riders who will travel to Retinne to represent their province are as follows
Director Sportif : Philip Wade
Support /Driver : David Wade
As the race location is only approx. 1 hours drive away from base near Brussels the team plan on travelling to Retinne on Saturday afternoon for a course recce with a 2 hour team pre ride planned for the riders so they know what to expect from the course come race day
The race itself is a 14 lap x 5.8 km loop with a total of 81.2 km starting at 13.00 on Sunday ,
Directly after the race it will be a quick return to our base in Leefdaal where team will pack up and head back to airport for return flight to Dublin Sunday evening.
While this is a short 1 race, 2 day trip it will however give our young riders a taste of continental racing along with the experience of international travel living together and being part of a team as they step up a level at the renound home of world cycling
We would like to wish all our Riders and staff the Best of Luck for the coming weekend and look forward to providing updates throughout the 2 days via Facebook and Twitter
