It's May. It's time for An Post Rás - Ireland's premier UCI race.
Running every year since it's inception in 1953, the Rás provides an opportunity for amateur club teams and riders to test their metal against some of Europe's up and coming UCI Continental teams including Danish, French, Dutch and Slovenian entries as well as Britain's JLT Condor, Team Wiggins and Ireland's newest professional team Aqua Blue Sport.
Elivar is delighted to be fueling one such amateur team, the Navan Road Club, for the second year in a row. Coincidence or not, Navan Road Club was founded in 1953, the same year as the inaugural Rás, while Elivar's products are produced in Navan. Perfect symmetry really.
The 2017 Rás started in Dublin on Sunday 21st of May and covers 1,200 km over eight days with finishes in Longford, Newport, Bundoran, Buncrana, Dungloe, Donegal and Ardee, before finishing in Skerries on Sunday, 28th May.
Navan Road Club is represented by Andy McGuinness, Ger Dunne, Johnny Clarke, Fergus Fagan, and Stephen Byrne. Elivar is providing the team with ENDURE, HYDRATE PLUS and the all-important RECOVER.
