An Post Rás Stage 1

Stage 1, Sunday May 22: Dunboyne – Portumna, 148 kms

Stage 1, Dé Domhnaig 22ú Bealtaine / Sunday 22nd May.

Dunboyne - Portumna 148 kms.

The 2.2-ranked event begins with a mainly flat, fast 148 kilometres from Dunboyne to Portumna.

Three An Post Hot Spot Sprints, at Allenwood, Mountmellick and Clonaslee, will shake up the racing and present valuable time bonuses that could prove crucial in the fight for the first yellow jersey of the first An Post Rás in Portumna.
