Junior Tour dates are clarified after mix-up

The International Junior Tour is scheduled for July 12-17 and not September 12-17 as printed in the Cycling Ireland handbook.

In recent days the problem about the date surfaced when a number of English teams echoed their horror at the misprint in the official calendar of the national body.

They had booked their passages on the Stena Line for September. According to a spokesperson for the race: "It came to light when requests were made for the names of the participants from the English teams. Thankfully, it has been ironed out."

Unfortunately, as of now, they have no title sponsor, but hope springs eternal. All the event details are on the event website, www.juniortourofireland.com
