Gabriels Lament By Ray Gough
Gabriel Howard
The late Gaybo Howard as he appeared on the Stamullen Road Club`s welcoming Banner which was on display close to Gabriel`s homestead at Stedalt Cross on Sunday last May 26th 2024 as the final stage of this year`s Rás Tailteann cycling race passed through the village of Stamullen. The following, Poetic, lines were penned in the aftermath of this exciting and gruelling cycling race by local man Ray Gough of Gough`s Corner, who for many a long year played an active role in stewarding and marshalling for both the older Saint Patrick`s Cycling Club and also the Stamullen Road Club as part of the traditional Rás Naomh Padraig and the Stamullen Grand Prix cycle races which were an annual fixture on the Irish Cycle Racing Calendar. Our grateful thanks to Ray for taking the time out to put his thoughts into words concerning the Rás of last Sunday and of his memories of the cycling days of yester-year.

Who Wins When Riders Are On The Same Time

As the 2024 Rás Tailteann rolls towards the finish line in Bective Stud, Tea Rooms and Apartments, County Meath, much like last year, who will end up taking the coveted Yellow Jersey is still very much up in the air.
The big difference with the current 2024 GC is that it is stacked! Three riders Dom Jackson,UK Foran CT, Conn McDunphy USA Skyling Cadence & Liam O'Brien Team Ireland are all on the same time but Dom Jackson is nonetheless the race leader.

This is how the Commissaires explained how it works for those who might not be familiar with the intricacies involved.

When riders are on the same time, the sum of their stage placings comes into play.

Whomever has the lowest combined stage placings total is ahead of the next rider as the the graphic shows.
So we're all set up for a grande finale tomorrow and an exciting finish to the 69th edition of An Rás Tailteann. Best of luck to all More>>>
