Eddie Tobin Memorial Road Race 2018 (June 24)

**June 23 Update**

Unfortunately due to the very low level of pre-entries we will not be holding a separate women’s race tomorrow. Any women who would like to race will be accommodated in the A3 or A4 races and we will have separate women’s prizes as appropriate. Pre-entries are being contacted now by email with the option of racing or taking a refund. A1/2, A3 and A4 races run at normal from 11AM.


Slaney Cycling Club is delighted to run our 2018 edition of the Eddie Tobin Memorial Races on June 24th.  This event has provided great racing since its inception with some of Ireland’s top riders taking the honours and good numbers taking part. Eddie was a long time member, rider and administrator of Slaney CC, was a respected member of the FBD Rás team and was heavily involved in the visit of the Tour de France to Enniscorthy in 1998.

This years race will take place on the same course as before based close to Bunclody, Co Wexford. The rolling 25km lap is very well surfaced and is a challenging circuit including a long drag to the finish (highest point of the race) and some fast sweeping descents. The start/finish is about 6kms from the sign on venue which is at the Bunclody AFC complex on Church Road, Bunclody. (Take turn at Mill Race Hotel – will be sign posted) Bunclody is situated on the N80, about 20 minutes from both the M9 and M11 Dublin motorways.
