After a fantastic series saw some great days of racing for all involved, the series concludes in the capital as Team WORC play host.

The standard of competition has been better than ever this season, with every category's overall rankings still up for grabs as we head into the final round - with the exception of the M60 category as recently crowned M65-69 world champion Johnny McCabe taking five victories in a row to seal the overall win.

With the Cyclo-cross National Championships to follow next weekend, riders are likely to be in top form as they fine tune preparation for the championships as well as compete for the National Series points on offer in the final round.

Team WORC said: 

"The 6th and final round of the 2023/2024 Cyclo-cross National Series is to be held by Team WORC on a new venue in Kilgobbin on the South Side of Dublin. A rare opportunity to compete on private land on the edge of the city, the course features a mixture of old wood land, grass, some tarmac and gravel path. The course has a few tricky sections, some off cambers, kickers, potentially a running section depending on conditions and faster more open riding."
