STAGE 2, MONDAY 19TH MAY

 

BALLINAMORE - CLAREMORRIS 167 KMS.

 

BALLINAMORE, Drumcong, Carrick-on Shannon, Tobercurry, Slieve Gamph Category 3 KOM, Bunnyconnellan, Ballina, Pontoon, Castlebar, Balla, CLAREMORRIS

 

 

Stage Two begins in the same location and again follows mainly flat roads. The peloton will pass through Carrick on Shannon after 24.9km of racing, then make for Boyle and Tobercurry (74km) en route to the sole climb, the category three ascent of Slieve Gamph. The prime line comes 92.7 kilometres after the start and with less than two hours remaining, this hill could act as a catalyst for a breakaway group to strike out for home.

 

From there the riders will head through Ballina, Knockmore, Castlebar (138.8km), over the level crossing at Manulla and then accelerate on towards the finish on the Square in Claremorris. In all it is 167.5 kilometres distance, and will see plenty of attacking and tactical racing.
