Our club man Damien Shaw has just returned from Spain where he had ten days of altitude training with his Seán Kelly/An Post/Chainreaction team. After a wonderful start to the season his main goal for 2017 is the An Post Rás, which starts in Dublin on Sunday next 21st May. Stage 1 finishes in Longford on Sunday so if you want to get a close up of this great race this is your chance. 

No doubt, all Irish cycling fans will be keeping a keen eye on the former National Champion during “Rás” week. On behalf of all Lakeside Wheelers members we wish Damien all the best and we will keep a close eye on his progress.

Full details of all the Rás stages can be found HERE.
