Plans continue apace for the 2020 edition of Rás na mBan which will be based for a fourth year in County Kilkenny.
Race Committee members have made a number of trips to the Marble City and county to review the proposed stage routes. Race Director Valerie Considine led an expedition on February 1st with Assistant Race Director Ronan Fox and PRO Declan Quigley driving other stage routes two weeks later.
The route for 2020 has yet to be completely finalised but, in line with recent policy to keep the event fresh and interesting for regular visitors, is set to feature subtle revisions and one completely new stage.
The Rás na mBan committee are dedicated to presenting stages which are an appropriate challenge for the riders and which offer an opportunity for fans on the roadside and those watching at home the best possible experience of top class international stage racing.
