Selection takes into account a rider’s domestic and international performances throughout the season and their commitment to cyclocross. Athletes must also adhere to Cycling Ireland’s anti-doping policies.
Applications are being sought from Under 14, Under 16, Junior and Under 23 riders, both male and female, who wish to be considered for inclusion within an Irish Cyclo-cross Development Squad.
The primary element of developing cyclo-cross riders in Ireland is the belief that the best pathway for international cyclocross success comes through strategic season planning, goal setting and cyclo-cross specific coaching and development. The goal of the Irish Cyclo-cross Development Squad is to see improvements in international competition with the longer term aim of making an impact in World Championship and World Cup events.

Round 3 of the Fixx SuperCross cup brought the riders to Ballawley park south Dublin. Heavy rains all week had flooded parts of the course and made them unusable.
However as Sunday came around the course had dried out, and the Supercross team had marked out an excellent testing course for the riders.
Punctures and rear mech destruction brought an end to some people’s race, but not series leader Robin Seymour who went on to take a commanding victory over Sean O’Tuathail and Tim O’Reagan. At the race start Seymour was led out of the start by young rider Paddy Michel who had a strong start, and went on to claim victory in the junior category..
