Round 10: Cùchulainn Stage

15 June, 2017 - 19:00

Sportmans - Majors Hollow - Blackgate - Bush - Glenmore - LWG. 52k.

After last week’s cancellation (for which we apologise), week 10 takes us back to the Sportsman’s for the Cùchulainn Stage. We’ve taken “poetic licence” to rename it from the Queen Stage that’s present in the Grand Tour races.

The race was scheduled for an amalgamation of our most common circuits; namely the Sportsman’s Loop, Ravensdale Loop and then with a new finish up to the LWG from Glenmore, but alas our plans have been scuppered by Louth County Council who decided to “resurface” (sort of) the roads in the area

Through necessity, we’re making some amendments to the route. Subject to any further changes to road conditions, the Round will play out as follows.

Groups 4/5/6 depart for 2 loops of the Sportsman’s Circuit.

After one full loop (as Group 6 pass for the 1st time), Group 1 will start immediately followed by G2 then G3.

Groups 4/5/6 will then complete a second full lap, and then head for The Bush and up Glenmore. Similarly, Groups 1/2/3 will do the same…

In short, all groups will go around Majors Hollow roundabout twice, and then onto The Bush.

We’ll go through this later on at rollout with everyone…
