Scott Junior Tour 2017

Race Director, Alice Sherratt has announced the route for the 2017 Scott Bicycles Junior Tour. The 6 Day international cycling race for under 18s will once again return to their now traditional base at Ennis, County Clare for the fifth consecutive year. “We love to return to County Clare for many reasons namely the great testing racing roads, the scenery and the wonderful reception we receive from the local community in County Clare, the Gardaí and Clare County Council. That kind of support assists us greatly in guaranteeing another successful edition for 2017” explained Sherratt.



The race, which is just shy of 500 kilometres in length over six days consists of its opening Time Trial on the Kildysert Road to Drumquin on Tuesday 11
th July. It is then followed by five road stages which takes in some of the most popular sights County Clare have to offer by taking in large sections of the Wild Atlantic Way within the county and also racing through the Burren on numerous occasions. But it won’t all be plain sailing for the riders as there will be numerous tough climbs to contend with such as Donnagore (Castle Hill) at Doolin, Corkscrew Hill on the outskirts of Lisdoonvarna and the hill top finish on Stage 5 at Gallows Hill just outside Cratloe. The race concludes on Sunday 16th July with a 77 kilometre circuit race on the outskirts of Ennis, based between the Kildysert Road and the Kilrush Road.
