Week 13 brings us onto the roads of mid-Louth; starting at the M1/N52 junction, heading for Ardee, across the link road, left at Dorians and onto the familiar Fane bridge finish.
This fast, predominantly flat stage tends to keep the groups together, in the main, but G4 with 4 riders in the Top 6 will be looking to assert their dominance and keep G5 and G6 away.
9 points separate the Top 3 riders and 4th/5th/6th are all on 52 points, everything is still up for grabs.
Sign on this week is at DKIT (18:15) , and although there has been little in the way of summer in the last couple of weeks, the weather looks dry at least. No need for sunscreen though.
Safe riding, and see you all Thursday
