Cross-country National Series Round Three Preview

The 2024 Cross-country National Series continues this weekend as Banbridge Cycling Club play host to round three in Dunmore, Co. Down.

After two sun-soaked editions of the National Points Series saw big numbers at the start line across many age categories, there were big wins for Caoimhe May and Robin Seymour in the senior 1 races to cap off an enjoyable second round in the Leadmines on May 19th.

And with a host of new winners in round two, the race for overall honours well and truly kicks off this weekend as riders aim to secure crucial points ahead of the final two rounds on June 16th and July 7th.
