Entries closing Wednesday evening (3 September) so get in before its to late ! as no entry on the day allowed for the Biggest CX event so far in Ireland. An UCI C2 cyclo cross with a pot of gold and very important UCI points to gain. The promoter Glenn Kinning told us that things start getting in shape and encourage local riders to join, this to make this an event that can be repeated in the future as enormous work has been involved to get to this point, not forgetting his volunteers and supporters.
