Rás Tailteann Yellow Jersey Sponsor Confirmed
Cáirde Rás Tailteann is thrilled to share the last of our sponsors for the 2023 edition of the race and announce an enhanced collaboration with Bective Stud who have returned in 2023 to sponsor the coveted General Classification Yellow Jersey.
Bective Stud is recognised within equestrian circles, and for its high-quality accommodation and facilities offerings. Located in Balgil, Navan, Co. Meath, Bective Stud is owned by the Moran family who have worked tirelessly since 2016 to restore it back to its former glory and beauty.
The race will officially commence from the gates of Bective Stud @ 12pm on May 17th ahead of five stages, where a fan zone has been erected to mark the occasion.
Cáirde Rás Tailteann invite spectators to attend to catch a close-up glimpse of the riders, and to experience the nervous energy ahead of the Grand Départ.
Race Director Gerard Campbell said:
“Cáirde Rás Tailteann is delighted that Bective Stud have returned to An Rás Tailteann 2023 and step up to sponsor the coveted yellow jersey classification. An Rás Tailteann shares a similar evolution with Bective Stud, both having surmounted multiple challenges in recent years in the pursuit of reestablishing themselves. Bective Stud also promotes similar sporting heritage and values, and strives for excellence in equestrian sport just as we endeavour to do within cycling.”
It comes after the last cohort of international teams were announced on Wednesday, including a British and Austrian team.
One of the strongest elite development teams in the UK and Europe in Embark Spirit BSS will be on the startline in Navan while Austrian elite regional team ARBO Headstart ON-Fahrrad will race in the prestigious race.
