The entries are open for the first ever UCI CX event in Ireland and it all will happen on Sunday 7th October in Mallusk (near Belfast). The hard work of Glenn Kinning (promoter) and Andy Layhe (CX National coach & Manager) has paid off..certainly not an easy thing to do ..money’s and sponsors had to be find to set this event up at UCI standards whom are very high, and should attract the best of Ireland and some foreign riders in search for UCI points. This event will put Irish and Ulster CX to the world map and should be supported to the hilt!! Free entry for the supporters on a versatile course in Mallusk. We at the Belgian Project will act as media partner and provide the commentary and our usual photo’s and interviews and very proud that we have been asked to do so. Here a bit more info of entry, and all you need to know about the race. There will be support races and youth racing in the morning before the big guns appear for the main races shortly after noon.
