Old Bleach is
utterly terrified extremely excited to announce we will be hosting leg three in the SEAT Super 7 series of criterium races.
Woo hoo and then some!
The event itself will be taking place Tuesday the 16th of June in and around the centre of Antrim town.
The circuit for the race starts on High Street before turning onto Railway Street, followed by another left onto Castle Way, down to the A6/Antrim Road and in the bus lane back to High Street.
The evening of fast paced thrills kicks off with the Under 16s youth race at 7-00pm. That will be followed by the Stevenson & Reid combination Masters (over 50s) and Womens race around 7-30pm before climaxing with the elite SEAT Super 7 race at 8-15pm.
It promises to be an unforgettable night of entertainment for all those who come along. What’s more, it costs literally nothing to watch!
We request those in attendance keep children, dogs (in our experience dogs aren’t particularly interested in cycle racing anyway) and themselves off the circuit while the races are taking place, especially if taking photos.
Cycling makes for a great spectacle where one can get closer to the action than many activities can offer. Please make sure ‘close’ does not become ‘too close’.
As we mentioned earlier, the Antrim crit is part three of the series. The other races, hosting clubs and contact details can be viewed here.
Thanks must go to our friends in Antrim Summer Festival without whom hosting this race would not be possible.
For obvious reasons all motorists are advised to park outside the crit circuit confines on the evening of Tuesday the 16th of June. Those wishing to watch or take part can park in one of the free car parks at Castle Street, Lough Road or Bridge Street.
Entry for events will be run through EntryCentral.com and will open two weeks prior to the races, on the evening of Tuesday the 2nd of June.
Pre and post-race changing and showering facilities will be made available in the Antrim Forum on the evening.
