Next qualifying round is in Corkagh Park Dublin on 1st April.

On Saturday 23rd March Conor Canton and David Boyne travelled to Roscommon, to take part in a qualifying round to get on the Irish team, for the European Youth Olympics. It consisted of a 7km individual time trial from Roscommon town to Castlecoote village.

Both lads acquitted themselves very well and posted some strong times. The 2013 European Youth Olympics Festival will take place in Utrecht, Netherlands from 14th to 19th July 2013. There will be two disciplines, a time trial and road race with both taking place on a flat, non-technical 8 km circuit – both the boys and girls time trials consist of one lap and the road races 8 laps and 6 laps for boys and girls respectively.
