under 23 Road Race Champion Philip Lavery taking part in Wicklow
Philip Lavery our top International Cyclist will
be flying in from his base in the South of France to take part on
the day. Philip who is the current under 23 road race Champion of
Ireland is coming to support the Irish Veteran Cyclists Association
and to encourage those of you who are taking part in the Wicklow
This will be one of the few opportunities we will have to meet with
and ride with Philip in Ireland this year. Philip who rides for
the AC Bisontine Team in France is in top form, has recently won
two high class races on the continent; the Le Souvenir Jean Lacroir
and The Tour du Charolais and has also been highly placed in a number
of other races.
"Always make friends in the Peleton" is the advice that
Philip gives to cyclists, so avail now of this great chance to make
friends with Philip and the other stars from all walks of life and
to the ordinary cyclists who have trained and who will push themselves
almost beyond their limits to complete the course on the day and
will be able to say that they completed the Wicklow 200.

Autumn. Women are welcome to race with the IVCA from their 35th year onwards so it will appeal to a large number of racers currently riding club
events or just coming into the sport.
