Organiser's Description

Billy Stewart Cup & Apollo Grand Prix events 
Apollo Cycling Club will be running their annual Billy Stewart event on the Sunday 11th August 2019. Racing Starts at 1pm. 

Welcome to Lurgan the Billy Stewart Course- which takes in the village of Warringstown as well as through the greater Lurgan town - a challenging course with mixes of very flat fast open roads and some small but sharp hills as you climb the rolly Clare Road around the middle section of each lap before a fast flat run for the finish which will give the bigger men a chance to recover before the sprint for the line on the main Lurgan Gilford road in the middle of housing developments which is sure to get the spectators out. 

This year  we are back at Good Year Social Club as race HQ - and will do a neutral roll out to start point on Millennium Way then onto the race circuit on the Lurgan Gilford Road 3 miles away.
