Entries Open for Rás na mBan 2018

Entry for Rás na mBan 2018 opens today as teams and riders from across the globe confirm their plans to race in Ireland's premier women's cycling event next September.

The 13th running of Ireland's premier international cycle race centres once again on the beautiful medieval city of Kilkenny in Ireland's Ancient East.

Teams from all over the world have signalled their intention to pitch for success in the five-day, six-stage event won in fine style by Elinor Barker of Team GB last year.

As in 2017 the entry process for teams and riders has been streamlined using the Eventbrite online entry system.

Team managers can add their specific team name to the system after which they, or team riders, can add up to five riders to the roster.

Team officials are asked to ensure that they use the same team name for each rider added to the squad and avoid team duplication.

Closing date for team entry is 15th August while rider names can be changed after entry and before the final rider confirmation date on September 3rd.

The event is not open to individuals. It is for teams of five riders representing teams or clubs registered with national associations affiliated to the UCI.

The 2017 running of Ireland's premier women's bike race was the biggest yet with 25 teams on the start line in Kilkenny last September.

Full route details will be announced in the coming weeks.
