What do World Superbikes and Irish Cycling have in common?

Well the answer is that the best of both will be competing on April 15th at the Galway Classic!

World Superbike rider Scott Redding is no stranger to two wheel machines, but when he's not hurtling around a race track at over 300kph Scott is busy riding and competing on his bike.

Owner of Rokit-SRCT Scott is a keen road racer over in the UK and this year he brings his squad to Galway to challenge for the title. With bike handling second to none he'll surely be a good wheel to follow on the rough stuff!

Galway Bay CC are delighted to announce that three British teams will come to compete in the Galway Classic on April 15th in Monivea in east Galway. Having gained a reputation at home and abroad as Ireland toughest one-day race two new teams from across the water will come to challenge the best of the Irish riders on the grueling 157km course which contains no less than 14 sectors.

Returning this year is team Embark Spirit BSS who will be bringing a very strong squad including former winner of the UCI 1.2 Grand Prix des Marbriers Damien Clayton.

London Irish team Foran CCC are the third UK based team competing this year and they bring a strong team of five riders with good off-road experience which should prove useful on the rough sectors through the bogs and manor estates around east Galway.

Having had a stellar year in 2022, Ras Tailteann winner and defending champion of the Galway Classic Daire Feeley will return to defend his title, and although he's sure to face a tougher test this year, who would bet against him making it two in a row?!
