Thanks to Dave Allen for the following videos taken at the summit of the Cat 1 KOM Corrobutt Gap climb on Mount Leinster.
Alex finished just 3min 35sec down on stage winner on Seskin Hill today (thats Neil Delahaye, Ireland national squad leader in the background!)
Wexford 8th best county team on stage 6 and up to 11th best overall.
I can’t get off work to be on the Corrobutt tomorrow but will try and get to finish. If anyone is going to the mountain can they bring a few bottles of either energy drink or water and offer to the lads in case they need a refill. Feeding from the roadside is not allowed but tomorrow will be a difficult day for the car to get up to feed the riders so we’ll take a chance! Wexford were 10th county team on todays Seskin Hill stage 5 and are 12th county team overall.

I don’t think many here use twitter but the Rás tweets have been superb. This @georgief/fbd-ras-2010 is a good list to follow.
