Nationwide event launched.

Remember the days of Sean Kelly and Stephen Roche? The one event that reconnects Ireland with cycling and the nostalgia that goes with it is the An Post Ras. Details for the 2014 event which will cross the country have been revealed.

Comprising over 1260 kilometres and 36 categorised climbs, the 2014 edition of the An Post Rás promises to be an aggressive and exciting spectacle. The route will travel anticlockwise around Ireland, beginning in Dunboyne on Sunday May 18th and featuring stage end finishes in Roscommon, Lisdoonvarna, Charleville, Cahirciveen, Clonakilty, Carrick on Suir, Baltinglass and Skerries.

The race profile strikes a balance between flat fast roads, undulating sections and tough climbs, with a total of five category one mountains and five category two ascents set to shake up the peloton.

An Post Rás route 2014 (UCI 2.2, May 18 -- May 25):

Stage 1, Sunday May 18: Dunboyne to Roscommon, 149.8 km:

Stage 2, Monday May 19: Roscommon to Lisdoonvarna, 159.2 km:
