Mick Byrne (200km) Randonee

By Alan Donoghue It’s taken me a week of therapy before I could write this! The Mick Byrne 200! Besides Hell, what is it? Well, it’s apparently the hardest 200 sportive on the calendar.

Brendan wins round 6

Brendan Ennis won tonight’s race in Enniscorthy, by taking the win ahead of his breakaway companions. Looking at the pictures, I’d say that’s the coolest winner’s salute the league has ever seen.

Etape du Dales report.

By Alan Donoghue Etape du where? Etape of the Yorkshire Dales! No, I’d never heard of it before either! It’s basically the Wicklow 200 of the north of England.
