I spoke to a tired Adrian on Sunday evening after he had completed the Serrento CC 200km event. The event was a qualifer for the gruelling Paris – Brest – Paris event run annually in France, 1200km in 4 days! There are limited places alocated to each country for this prestigious event, Audax Ireland are responsible for handing out the spaces to Irelands competitors. If you complete the required cycles throughout the year your name goes into the hat and you have a chance of being selected.
The cycles are not guided by mashalls but instead rely on the map reading skills of the cyclists! Adrian was very impressed with event and for the fee of 6 euros was fed and showered afterwards, he itends to go along to the next Audax and thinks that there are many wheelers capable of this kind of ride and would also enjoy the experience. So if you fancy it or would like to ask some more questions just get in touch with Adrian.
