CAMPBELL CONTINUES AS RÁS CHIEF

Cumann Rás Tailteann Cycling Club has confirmed Tony Campbell as organiser of the 2018 8 day international cycle race, An Rás Tailteann. This will be Campbell’s sixth year in charge of the race. Campbell said he’s honoured to be continuing in the position and is looking forward to the challenges ahead. He expects next year’s race to take place from 20th to 27th May, a date to be confirmed by Union Cycliste Internationale.

Club Chairman, Dermot Dignam, heads up a sponsorship committee tasked with attracting a new sponsor to replace An Post which had to end its seven year involvement due to current financial difficulties.  The committee includes Tony Campbell, Eimear Dignam and Noel Candon. Dignam thanked An Post for its great sponsorship and current support in seeking a new sponsor.

The race has an impressive history of sponsorship. FBD Insurance and National Dairy Council jointly sponsored the race from the early eighties to 1995 when the NDC stood down and FBD carried on as sole sponsor until An Post took over by agreement in 2011. Most of the 25 county teams in this year’s race were sponsored as were eleven UCI Continental (pro) Teams from Denmark, France, Britain, Netherlands, Slovenia, and the USA. National teams representing Ireland, Australia and Belgium also took part.
