There is an air of excitement amongst the VC Iveagh ranks, the days are getting noticeably longer, the winter chill is slowing dissipating and as it fades so grows the excitement that is the VC Iveagh Race Season. The season kicks of this Thursday with a 2UP TT on the Rathfriland Road, Banbridge and the timing could not have been better. There is always a lot of excitement pre-race season and this year is no exception with an unprecedented number of members taking out race licenses. Twelve events have been listed on our 2016 calendar, which basically equates to two events per month so we have a plethora of races for VC Iveagh and all other club riders to get their teeth into.
With several time trials, four road races and an obligatory hill climb we have something for pretty much everyone. It is a testament to our ‘Bun Runs’ and ‘Wednesday Night Club’ that we have unearthed a pool talented new riders, not only guys ready willing and able to race but already turning out great results. VC Iveagh will always strive to be a club for all comers and never limited ourselves to just one genre but we definitely do encourage all VC Iveagh members to give the racing a go. Competitive? Yes, fun? Damn straight.
So make sure you have the license up to date, bike tuned beyond perfection and come join us this Thursday for the start of our race season.
