A small off-road team from Banbridge Cycling Club, consisting of two elites Gareth McKee and Lindsay Watson riding for PlushMTB and Junior rider James Curry, with Simon Curry as Team Manager, will be competing in Belgium this coming weekend in the second round of Benelux cup in Erezee, Belgium.
The event is a C1 UCI race for both Elites and Juniors and will be a high calibre of racing with teams collecting UCI points for the Olympics, however the team are looking forward to the challenge. Full details on the event can be found on http://www.pi-beneluxcup.com/en/benelux-cup/
It is a credit to the entire team that they are pushing themselves to this level and pitch themselves against the world’s elite in preparation for their season’s goals at the British and Irish NPS series . Best of luck to them from everyone at Banbridge CC!
