Tomorrow (Tuesday 7th ) sees the Foyle Cycling Club`s Maiden City Crit with Christopher McGlinchey – who rode so impressively in the Kerry Group Rás Mumhan earlier this year going up against Roger Aiken, Adam Armstrong and Jason Henry who are among a strong field that should guarantee an exciting night’s racing.
With the long-range forecast predicting a warm and pleasant evening, Tuesday’s CRIT should be the most competitive in its four-year history.
With selective road closures coming into action from 18.00 onwards, 100s of people are expected to turn out to watch. Roads affected are Foyle Street, Shipquay Street, Ferrquay Street and Market Street.
Meanwhile on Thursday evening the action shifts to Ballymoney in County Antrim, where the local Ballymoney CC-Biestey`s are planning a full programme of races around the town.
There is no pre entry for this event, with sign on taken on the night. Entries will be £10. Youth races £4.
There will be a 5-race programme (see below) along with a family run around the town.
Sign in at the Townhead street car park, Ballymoney.
