Cycling Ulster has named an 8-rider squad who will tackle the 6-day Junior Tour of Ireland, which gets underway next Tuesday (12th) in Ennis, County Clare.
One Ulster rider, Jake Gray has made it on to the National squad, which leaves a strong selection for Ulster, headed by last year`s 14th placed overall rider, Marc Heaney (Nicolas Roche Performance Team).
All riders have a strong pedigree, with Liam Wilson a contender for last week`s Newry 3-day win, which will stand him in good stead for the week ahead.
