An Post Rás – Stage 4 Details

As we know today Stage 4 comes through Mayo and this is the perfect opportunity to get out and support all the Mayo lads.

Bring a flag or a banner or anything to support them all in their massive effort and cheer them up the road and watch them hold their own against some serious riders from all over the world.


We have 4 from our own club and also Dave Brennan from Castlebar CC in the Mayo.ie team.

We have Anthony Murray with the Australian Team Subaru-Albion who is also a Covey Wheelers.

Also Jason Prendergast from Louisburgh is a former Covey Wheeler and is cycling with the other Mayo team, MAYO Coleman Electronics – T.K.E
