Special thanks to everyone who turned out to lend a hand -
from photographers, to marshaling, to helping out at the
finish - great job!
Riders set off at 1 minute intervals on a fast route from
Kinnegad to Milltownpass on the old Dublin to Galway Road
returning on the same route to finish at Kinnegad.
Start/Finish line was after the last roundabout leaving
Kinnegad for Milltownpass.
Tips for warming up correctly can be found here.
Warming up correctly is very important, not only to get the
best performance out of yourself, but also to avoid possible
injury by trying to ride the race from a 'fresh', rested state
for some of the science behind it all).
