VELOREVOLUTION Co-Sponsored Team in the UCI 2.2 An Post Ras 2016
We were again thrilled to put our money where out mouth is and co-sponsor a team with the help and support of STRATA3, Stephen Roche Cycling Holidays, SKODA Ireland and An Rothar Cycle Centre Midleton, in this years UCI 2.2 An Post Ras Tour of Ireland which is Ireland’s hardest race on the Irish racing calendar. Covering 1,200 km over 8 days, this is a grueling event where time cuts are truly alive and kicking and the team needs to be set up and resourced correctly.
We had 5 racers and 4 staff with each rider having a bag full of all the kit they could possibly need, apart from the first day where they experienced rain, the other 7 days were full of sunny weather. Racing was fast furious and we lost one to a crash (well 2 crashes actually) and another to illness on the 6th day.
We are happy to say that they performed superbly well, all working men against a field full more of professionals versus amateurs.
Here is a gallery of the guys, the clothing and the race. All items are available to new custom clients and some are for sale on the Online Store from the link above in the main navigation. The lads wore skinsuits, race suits, gilets, armwarmers, lycra aero overshoes, meryl skinlife socks, TT Mitts, bioceramic styled jerseys and high compression bibshorts.
