Our aspiration is to have competitive groups of similar numbers, grouped by ability. We will have a separate Women’s section subject to entry level and spread of abilities.

At present we don’t have enough enough entries to make that happen so if you are interested in our premier event please sign up!

Entry now open

Entry Closes Monday 13th May

Open Track 0930– 10.10
First event 10.15
We will set up groups of similar numbers and we would hope to have W1/W2/A/B/C but that is largely dependant on entry levels as we only do this if there is enough for two women’s groups due to spread of abilities.

Prizes Top 3 in each category, and Top 3 Overall

“Duane joined Finglas Ravens in the late 80s. He was a very honest rider and loved bike racing. Every race he rode he gave it his best. Never got annoyed, always had a smile and a joke after the race no matter how hard it was. The damp weather in Ireland used to affect his breathing so he decided to head off to Australia where his father Tony was from. He joined Carnegie Caulfield Cycling Club and made great progress on the track in particular. Duane had just turned 30 (1997) and was cycling home from a race with his teammates when he was involved in a serious road traffic accident.  He was in intensive care for eight days and never regained consciousness. He was a big loss to the club and of course his family. There was a mass service for him in Australia and he was brought home. He is buried out in Dardistown along with his mother who passed away in 2013. This race run in his honour reflects his sense of fair play and encouragement to all and is unique in that overall honours goes to the rider who excels within his class irrespective of category.”
Berni McCormack (Finglas Ravens)
