Stage Race Fever
Friday, May 20, 2011 at 12:54AM

As Easter fell so late this year it meant that I would ride Rás Mumhan and the Tour of Ulster on back-to-back long weekends. If I could come through the other side of this tough block of stage-racing all would bode well in terms of my aspirations of riding the Rás. It is important to seriously challenge both the head and the legs before doing the Rás and these two races would be perfect to see what level I was at.

For convenience I include below my race reports from both races below. Rás Mumhan took place first followed by the Tour of Ulster. There is plenty of reading there if you fancy it ... up to you etc.

Final preparations up next
