One of the most anticipated cycling events of the year, the race usually falls on the August bank holiday and gives an opportunity for the big stars to challenge themselves before the season settles down.


After an absence of 21 years, racing returned to Wexford last year. The county has been known in the past for hosting the prestigious Tuskar Rock Grand Prix and the 2-Day on August 23 is a great start in getting back to those days.


The An Post Rás na mBan, which takes place on September 10, began as a two-day event in 2006.The hard work of the organisers and volunteers has seen it grow into the six-stage, five-day international event it is today in Co Clare – attracting the finest female cyclists from all over the world.
