Omagh Wheelers SPAR Tour Of Omagh
Welcome to the 2019 edition of the Tour of Omagh. Now in its 10th year, the race is still going from strength to strength thanks to the direction of Omagh Wheelers Committee, and to the many volunteers connected to Omagh Wheelers Cycling Club.
ONLINE ENTRY INSTRUCTIONS:
Riders need to be registered individually on EntryCentral, and Team name needs to be clearly outlined to identify team name. A Team manager also needs to be added, along with relevant contact details as they will be asked to prioritise rider applications as required. Entries are welcome from both solo riders and teams, but preference will be given to teams to aid logistics on the event.
Subject to demand, the A4 race will prioritise teams of 4. Additional riders may be accepted if space permits. In the Women's race, we welcome applications from solo and teams, and we also will welcome teams of more than 4 riders as we generally can accommodate riders in the race.
Sign-on is on Friday 26th July from 3:00pm to 4:30pm at Drumragh Sarsfields GAC, 85 Clanabogan road, Omagh. Co. Tyrone. BT78 1SL.

This special race gives A4 & Women cyclists the opportunity to experience the demands and challenges of a three day event, which provides Real competitive racing, and an excellent enviroment for riders to gain experience and develop. The demands of a three-day event is very differant to a normal one-day race, as not only do the riders have to try and recover before the demands of the next stage, but you also have a mixture of cycling disciplines to contend with such as a King of the Mountains (KOM) competition for the climbers. There is also a competition for the Best Overall Rider and Team which requires every rider to keep riding to the line for those vital seconds. In 2019, we are introducing a new Women's category for the W3 Overall Leader, and we will once again have the Best Young Rider (u23) competition in the A4 race.
A comprehensive race pack, including details of all stages will be available on our website www.tourofomagh.co.uk before the event.
