Looking to next week, and there is a busy round of town-centre Criteriums taking place across the country, all offering a different array of challenges.
The action kicks off on Tuesday evening (14th) with the Old bleach CC offering in Antrim.
This is followed on Wednesday evening by the Ards Town Centre Races in Newtownards.
On Thursday it is the turn of Bann Wheelers for their event in Coleraine, sponsored by Trust Ford, Gibson Financial Planning and MacAuley Wray Solicitors.
On Friday evening the racing moves back to Belfast on Friday for the Phoenix CC`s Crit in the Park at Ormeau Park.
For those fancying something different, but equally challenging, the Kinning Cycles team are hosting their Hill Climb on the Creighton`s green road in the Holywood hills on Thursday evening.
