Road Race Championships details

Next Sunday (20th August) sees the highlight of the IVCA racing calendar, the Road Race Championship, taking place.  This event is run as an Age CP, i.e. a single race handicapped on age.  The time gaps between the age categories are provided below.

Due to traffic diversions in Co. Meath as a result of the Dublin Ironman event, the IVCA race will now take place over 3 laps of the Kilcullen circuit, with sign-on at Kilcullen Community Centre from 8.00 am to 8.45 am.  First riders will be off at 9 am.

Riders will start in 5-year age groupings, based on their year of birth – i.e. the age they will reach by 31st December 2017.  If you are riding the event, the attached list shows the group you will start with, based on your year of birth.

A Women’s Championship and trophy will be incorporated into the race provided a minimum of 5 women riders start the event.  Each woman competitor will ride in the age category above her actual age (e.g. a woman aged 40 will start with the 45-49 age group, a woman aged 49 will start in the 50-54 age group, etc).  With an increase this year in the number of women racing with the IVCA, this is a great opportunity for an IVCA Women’s champion to be crowned for the first time ever.
