The 2011 An Post Rás route has just been launched. You can access the full details here. The most interesting news is that stages 3 & 4 (May 25th and 25th) will be in county Kerry.
Stage 3 will involve a very difficult 175.3 kilometre cycle from Kilrush to Castleisland ending with the Category 1 climb of Gleansharoon, just past Crag Cave with the summit being just 8 kilometres from the finish, which is bound to split the bunch up and make the finish very interesting. The stage end in Castleisland will be hosted by Currow Cycling Club and well done to them for being involved in bringing the Rás back to Castleisland.
Stage 4 will also begin in Castleisland and will see the riders travel 142 kilometres to Castetownbere. For more information on the Rás, keep an eye on the Rás website.
