“The 2017 edition of Ireland’s premier women’s bike race may well have been the best one yet. It takes an enormous organisational effort for race organiser Valerie Considine and her team to produce the five-day, six-stage race which once again ran without a hitch.

“The race also earned widespread media coverage throughout Ireland and abroad including a TV highlights show aired on Eurosport, which can only be positive for the event and for Irish women’s cycling in general.”
