What Is The National Road Series?




Cycling Ireland's National Road Series is a six-race road racing league, open to Men with A1/A2 licenses and Women who hold Full Competition Licenses.


Each race, held across the four provinces of Ireland, is a standalone, one-day road race, but National Road Series points are awarded to the first 20 riders across the line in the Men's and Women's Elite Race.


The points accumulate, with double points offered at the final round, and the riders with the most points at the top of the National Road Series General Classification after that race are crowned champion.


The series brings together some of Ireland's finest one-day cycle races, encouraging riders to compete consistently throughout the season.


The aim of the National Road Series is to increase the standard of road racing in Ireland and to give domestic riders a chance to develop their potential.
