Ballinrobe 3 day on May Bank Holiday open for entry

The Ballinrobe 3 day has changed its date it was always held in August as a 2 day event but the club felt that  the time was ripe to move the event to May and make it a 3 day event.

The stages are testing but suit the all rounder and with no TT the result may be in doubt till the final stage.

Stage 1 Ballinrobe 3 day

2 laps of 57k, the opening  stage is pretty flat as you will see from the profile above, but the roads are open and if we get the wind blowing hard expect echelons and broken pelotons, we have 2 KOH sprints one at 44k and the other at 100k its only short and will establish who is interested in the KOH competition.

More to follow on stage 2 next week
