Open only to W2 and W3 riders, the Women’s Intermediate League is an opportunity for riders looking to build experience in road races and also provide preparation for road races later this year.

Points will be awarded to the first six over the line, with bonus points available for completing five of the six rounds. There will also be a prize for the overall best Junior rider.

Speaking about the importance of the league, Cycling Ireland Women’s Commission Chairperson Jennifer Bates said, “The Intermediate League is a perfect stepping stone for those wanting to progress from mid-week races to weekend road races without going straight in at the deep end, all races have been chosen by the women’s commission to ensure they are safe and competitive parcours at not too challenging a distance. The idea of running the races as part of a league of six races is that hopefully at the end of the series the women feel confident to step up and jump in to open road races.”
