Ballinrobe 3 day Stage 2 preview

Stage 2 starts at 12 noon.

This Stage is unique to the Western Lakes area, it incorporates a double loop around the famous Lough Mask. Starting on the Castlebar Rd out of Ballinrobe we take all left turns around the Lake, till we get to the Neale and Ballinrobe town then on the reverse loop we take all right hand turns with a Finish outside the Old Church on the Castlebar Rd.

What does this mean for the racer ? well 2 climbs up the infamous Maam Trasna climb (Both Directions), this area is notorious for the famous crime of the Maam Trasna murders away  back over 100 years ago, how many of the riders will be slaughtered on this stage one will only know at the finish.

Who is this stage suited too ? with the final climb over 30k from the finish, we think it will be a strong man’s stage and providing a team  does’ nt  control a break away.. It could be just be a bunch of strong riders sprinting it out for the stage victory, will it shake up the GC, Yes we think it can…
