The Committee and members of Seven Springs CC are delighted to announce the launch of the fourth edition of their 40km Open TT in association with Pat Callanan Property Sales. In line with previous years, the event will start just outside the village of Kilrickle with the riders heading east along the old N6 towards Ballinasloe where they turn and head back towards Kilrickle. The course is a regular feature on the club’s TT league and has proved immensely popular; so much so thatthis year it will serve as the 2022 Connacht TT Championships whilst also featuring as Round 2 of the Cycling Ireland National TT Series. Find out more about this new national series here.
IMPORTANT: All TT bikes will be subjected to the standard bike check to ensure that all bikes and equipment being used are within regulations and to ensure that they are eligible to compete. For all the details on what is involved, click here.
