Dlight was proud to sponsor the Comeragh Cycling Club’s team that took part in the 2016 An Post Ras. The An Post Rás is an annual, eight-day, stage race around Ireland. The race is Ireland’s number one cycling event and took place from May 22 – 29, 2016. The Rás has a worldwide reputation of being a gruelling challenge in the elite, international cycling calendar.
The open racing style allows amateur county and club riders to pit themselves against domestic and international professionals. Dlight was proud to support the local team which consisted of David Halligan, Martin Cullinane, Ciaran Power, Noel O’Dwyer and Tadhg de Barra.
29 Years On
Comergah Cycling Club 29 years on…. The club was set up by Eamon Barrett of Altitude Cycle & Outdoors in Waterford City. The two decades since 1987 have seen many Comeragh Cycling club riders complete in events such as the Maracycle, Etape du Tour, the Wicklow 200 & the Sean Kelly Tour of Waterford to name but a few.
Dlight have recently come on-board and are thrilled to be a part of a great Waterford cycling club with a three year deal on club jerseys.
No year has borne more significance and success for Irish cycling than 1987. Stephen Roche reached the pinnacle of his career, joining the great Eddy Merckx as the only other cyclist to win the ‘triple crown’ of overall victories in the Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France stage races plus victory in the World Championships.
