The rain stayed away on the final day of An Post Rás 2017 as JLT Condor’s James Gullen secured the general classification. Despite no stage wins, Gullen was very consistent throughout the week, securing the yellow jersey on stage five and defending it right up to the final stage. Przemyslaw Kasperkiewicz was the stage eight winner in Skerries, giving the An Post Chain Reaction team their third stage win of the week. The 22-year-old from Poland added the stage win to his King of the Mountains jersey. Kasperkiewicz came home the strongest from Samuel Jenner (Australia National Team) in second and Jerome Mainard (France Armée de Terre) in third.

After a dismal day of rain yesterday, the riders welcomed the dry weather for what was the shortest route of the week at 129.4 kilometres. The final stage took the riders along similar roads as in recent years; heading through Nobber, Navan, Kentsown, Duleek and over Bellewstown (Cat Three), Snowtown Hill/Harbourtstown (Cat Three) and Ringfort View (Cat Three) before being welcomed by a huge crowd in Skerries. The route took the peloton around the finishing circuit three times, with the riders making three climbs over Black Hills before the ceremonial finish. More>>>

The riders faced 167.3 kilometres, taking them southeast from Donegal town through Northern Ireland and finishing in Ardee, Louth. Unlike the previous day, which emphasised the climbs, the seventh day featured flatter roads with twisting turns, promising for a more open race. More>>>
