STAGE 3, TUESDAY 20TH MAY

 

CLAREMORRIS - LISDOONVARNA 133 KMS.

 

CLAREMORRIS, Milltown, Tuam, Claregalway, Clarinbridge, Kilcolgan,

Ballyvaughan, Fanore, Ballinalacken Category 3 KOM,  Roadford/Doolin, Doonagore Category 1 KOM,  LISDOONVARNA

 

 

 

Stage Three from Claremorris to Lisdoonvarna is the second-shortest of the 2008 FBD Insurance Rás but in featuring the first category one climb of the race, it should prove crucial. The route take the riders through Tuam (24km), over the level crossing on Oranmore, then on to Clarinbridge, Kinvara (73.2km), Fanore and on to the category three ascent of Ballinalacken, 118.9 kilometres after the start and fractionally under 20 from the finish.

 

Soon afterwards the riders will race onto the slopes of the first category Doonagore climb and with the summit only 7.5 kilometres from the line in Lisdoonvarna, flat-out attacking is guaranteed. The climb will show who the true favourites are for the race.
