The ever popular Noel Teggart Memorial will return for 2024 on Sunday 16th June, and once again we are delighted to confirm PSNI approval of a one-way road closure on multiple parts of the route to minimise oncoming traffic for the riders and supporting cavalcade.

The event will once again use the testing 30km Banbridge/Rathfriland/Annaclone circuit, winding in the shadows of the Mourne Mountains it provides a healthy mix of challenging rises in the road and fast flowing smooth paved tarmac to encourage plenty of great racing.

We have reduced the number of bunches on the circuit from previous years, limiting it to 2 races.  Race 1 will cater for A1-A2 riders, completing 4 laps for a total race distance of 124km.  Race 2 will cater for A3-A4 riders, covering 3 laps for a race distance of 93km.  As per other Banbridge CC events, we will be permitting women to ‘ride down’ a category, so A2 women can ride in the A3-A4 race over a slightly longer distance. This has also proven to be popular in the past and has offered women competitive larger bunch racing ahead of key season targets such as the National Road Championship which take place later in the month. Women’s prizes will be offered in both races.

A small sporting handicap will be offered in both races, the size of which will be determined by the nature of the weighting of category entries.  Both races will commence at 12 noon.

Race entry is now open via the Cycling Ireland EventMaster portal, here, and will close at 8pm on Thursday 13th June.
