banbridge logoBanbridge CC is delighted to announce that the 2016 Irish Criterium Championships, to be held in Banbridge on Friday 12th August, will be broadcast on television channel TG4. 

The event will be covered over a 30 minute TV slot and will include rider interviews and plenty of fast paced action from the Championship race.  

Due to the assistance of partner Velo Moto TV, who were the production company behind the fantastic television coverage of the Irish Road Race Championships which were also recently broadcast on TG4, it is a real step forward for Irish cycling to have the sport regularly broadcast to television sets across the country.

The prospect of seeing in-form riders such as Mark Dowling; local duo Mark Downey and Matty Teggart ; last year`s Bronze medallist Glenn Kinning and possibly even former national Criterium Champion (and Track World Champion) Martyn Irvine (who made a recent return to competition), makes for a great night`s entertainment and a great TV programme.

Entries will not be accepted on the night. 

A Women’s support race will also take place on the night, further details of which can be found on the Women’s Cycling Ireland website.
