As per last year we will have 3 races available for entry.

The sign-on for both events will be at Lough Moss Leisure Centre on the Hillsborough Road from 7:30am - 8:30 am for the B race, and between 10:00am and 10:45am for the A race. Parking available at Lough Moss leisure centre.

The race start will be at the junction of A24 and Carr Road. No car parking at the start/finish line.

May we ask all riders in the A race to make their way to the course via the Moss Road or A24, as to avoid the B race which will be in progress.
 
Showers and Light Refreshments will be available after each race at the Lough Moss Centre, where there will be two separate prize givings. 

 

Full details including a map of the circuit will be available at www.castlereaghcc.com

   

Entry is £15. Please note no refunds will be given

 

Given the volume of traffic on the circuit and the neutral support vehicle, we are asking all clubs and riders NOT to have team cars on the course.  It adds to the length of the race convoy which not only causes traffic and safety issues, but can interfere with the race. 

 

A valid racing licence is required for all entrants - no exceptions. If you have not yet received your racing numbers and licence from Cycling Ireland please bring alternatives (copies can be printed off the CI website). Your race numbers from last season are acceptable but please make the sign-on desk and Commissaires aware.

All competitors must wear visible race numbers on their back, and have their CI-issued number plate affixed to the rear of their bike.

 

No license no race, commissares/sign on decision is final.
