Race Around Ireland – shorter route option for 2013

Carvalho Custom has been sponsoring the Race Around Ireland for the last 2 years and they have just announced their start date for 2013, which is 15th of September. Their standard route is 2100 kms non-stop racing round Ireland, for solo riders or teams of 2, 4 or 8. For the solo riders that is clearly a super-human challenge and there are not many people on the planet able to do it, so for 2013 they are going to have a half-distance option so that more riders can give it a go.

If you are interested in epic bike challenges, they you should certainly consider giving the Race Around Ireland a go – it is fantastically well organised, with a unique race atmosphere and you get to see one of the world’s most beautiful countries on the way round. Here is a flavour of the race from 2012.

We supplied custom cycling jerseys for all the competitors – when you have been sitting on bike for 5 days with virtually no sleep and 2000 kms in your legs, getting a free jersey must seem like scant reward, but nobody is into endurance bike racing for the prizes. But what the hell are they in it for? Strange, strange people….
