The Tipperary county road cycling championships were held on Thursday, July 9, by ‘Black House Racing’ cycling team.
The race was 60km, starting at the foot of the Rock of Cashel, which made for a beautiful backdrop for this spectacle of racing.
The race followed a 12km curcuit from Cashel to Boherlahan, Ardmayle and back to Cashel.

Five laps of this circuit were raced by participants. Cyclists travelled from all over the county and beyond to contest the highly coveted titles.
