« on: November 01, 2007, 11:56:29 PM »
This Sunday 4th of November the fourth round of the Ulster league will be held at Lisburn City Council Headquarters, The Island Centre Lisburn, who are kindly supporting the race.
The event run by Dromara Cycling Club was the best supported race in 2006 and once again this popular course should attract the crowds,despite the fact that Cycling Ulster have decided to hold their AGM at the same time.
Dromara CC would like to invite all Irish cyclists, espically the MTB riders and underage to come and enjoy this spectacular short circuit type of race.

The Course has been extended on last year, allowing a total of 1.5 miles of mostly fast flowing circuit, including the lagan tow path.
The Cyclo Cross race at Lisburn will be for cyclo cross bikes only with a separate race being held for mtb riders as well as races for U-8, U-10 and U-12 riders etc.

 Designed by Trevor Annett, the course is very sheltered and scenic, set along both sides of the river Lagan. .Anyone wanting to sample Off Road cycle racing, the cyclo cross and mtb events are the perfect ways to get started.
