Exciting racing on day 2 of the National Cyclo-cross Championships

Day 2 of the 2019 Irish National Cyclo-cross Championships saw great racing across the four races – Junior men, Masters (M40, M50 and M60), Women and Senior Men.  A terrific day laid on by host club De Ronde van Cork.  The large crowd of spectators enjoyed the racing and hospitality at Fota House on a dry day with outbreaks of warm, winter sun.   Many thanks to Race Director Michéal Corkery and to all those who helped to pull this event together.
