Cáirde Rás Tailteann is thrilled to announce a collaboration with Sport Ireland as the sponsor of the highly competitive, daily county rider's classification during the 2023 race.
This is a classification that has animated countless editions of An Rás, and is one of the most fiercely contested classification prizes of the event.
Sport Ireland is the authority tasked with the development of sport in Ireland. This includes participation in sport, high performance sport, anti-doping, coaching and the development of the Sport Ireland Campus.
Race Director Gerard Campbell on announcing this new collaboration commented “We’re delighted that Sport Ireland have chosen to align themselves with An Rás Tailteann in 2023. This is an acknowledgment of the important role this race plays in developing the sport of cycling in Ireland and developing domestic riders to an elite level”.
Dr. Úna May, CEO of Sport Ireland commented “We are pleased to be supporting An Rás Tailteann, particularly as this illustrious race celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2023. We look forward to seeing cycling fans enjoying five days of thrilling racing on Irish roads again this May".
