Ras Mhaigh Eo is a 2 Day Stage Race, see race maps and details below. The two road race routes are the same as used in previous editions, taking the riders on some of Mayo’s most scenic and testing roads. With a new ‘fair’ hilly TT route added this year, so you may not need a TT bike… this is down to your own personal preference – TT route is half flat and half uphill (overall avg gradient 2.4%).
Riders will be contending for the 5 sponsored jerseys up for grabs:
