Tuesday 17th May
Saturday 21st May
With no other choice open to us, and we have decided to
Cancel the West Down GP
this with just over 50 Riders short in both Races
an incredible 100 Riders!!! Even if we added the A3s to the
A1-A2 race, which we were not prepared to do, we still be
running it at a loss
URGENT MESSAGE from West Down Wheelers >>> The West Down Wheelers GP of this Saturday is not happening due to a big lack of entries…a decision that was not easy made!!
Sunday 22nd May
URGENT MESSAGE from Navan RC >> ? Calling all Junior Men racers.!!
As part of our upcoming Sean Nolan Grand Prix – National Road Series promotion, we have a separate Junior Men’s race. 4 laps – 92km. ?
There are very few opportunities for juniors to race solely within their own category. ?♂️
Recently published figures show 268 registered Junior riders, with some top talent fighting it out in the point standings. We’d love to see you in Navan.
Given the upcoming National Road Championships in June, and the Junior Tour of Ireland in July……now is the perfect time to build your form and impress team selectors !!
Registration; https://eventmaster.ie/event/JvYbCpvHRk (The Belgian Project will be there for commentary and tunes…see you all on Sunday)
The 2022 Emyvale GP on Sunday 22nd May
Emyvale Cycling Club host their highly renowned annual Grand Prix on Sunday 22nd May after a two-year absence (Entry link below). This year’s race once again takes place just outside Monaghan town on the Ballybay road-based at Tommy Martins Fuels yard. Eircode H18 D267. Thanks Tommy.
As you are probably aware, there is a clash with Navan Road Club’s hosting of the National Road series on the same day, so we have liaised with Navan RC and decided mutually that we will avoid hosting conflicting races. Hence we will not be hosting an A1 or A2 event this year and likewise, Navan RD will not be hosting an A3 or A4 race. We encourage all relevant categories’ riders to attend the appropriate event in either Emyvale or Navan.
Emyvale CC’s racing begins at 10 am with the A3/Junior race, followed at 3-minute intervals by the A4, Master’s, and Women’s races. The women’s race is a part of the Cycling Ulster Women’s League, but all women are welcome on the day. All details and entry info on https://eventmaster.ie/event/mblKhyVFM8

News from Newry Wheelers
Men’s Race Sold out!!
However, I kept places for junior riders for the event, if these are not all taken up by the end of the week I will allocate them to senior riders. I strongly advise any rider interested in racing the 3-day to sign up via event master and join the reserve list >> https://eventmaster.ie/event/MvRoFbdiBz << As previously mentioned there will be a cap on team entries so if a squad has more than 5 riders they will have to pick their team. Full refunds will be given till the end of May for riders and then rider transfers will be possible up until 2 weeks before the race.I strongly urge the women to enter asap as it makes planning the event easier for all.
Important and caring message!!
