Rás na mBan Green Jersey winner appeals to more women to get involved in competitive cycling

The best of the Irish cyclists in this year’s Rás na mBan says it was a very tough 5 days.

The race – which this year took place in Kilkenny – began last Wednesday and finished on Saturday night.

However, it was forced to finish sooner than planned because of a bad tumble involving a number of cyclists – with 4 of them taken to hospital.

The cycle lasted 400 kilometres, and 6 stages over 5 days with 121 riders taking part.

Belfast’s Clare McIlwane was the best of the Irish – claiming the Green Jersey and she told KCLR Live this morning that it’d be great for more women to get involved in competitive cycling.
