Gorey Three Day has been a classic competitive outing on the domestic circuit for decades and now the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend in Co Wexford is set for a shake-up with new stages

They include the return of the race against the clock – a short sharp effort with a rise to the line – as well as a new uphill stage finish, where the riders will face a climb of over 3km to the chequered flag.

Race director Derek Webb has also just opened entries so if you have designs on lining out this year, you can get your entry in by following this link.

The stage details are as follows:

The White Heaps finish to stage 2 will take the riders up that climb, on the Wexford-Wicklow boundary for what will be the first ever climbing finish to a stage at the famed Gorey.

The climb is 3.14km with an elevation gain of just 148m and an average gradient of 4.5 per cent. That means it’s not exactly a monster but it will be a seven to eight minute effort and that should be more than enough for the strongest riders to turn the screw.

The race organisers are also introducing a new category, with leader’s jersey, for junior women. That new female junior category comes after the race has been designed to better cater for women in recent years.

However, while the addition of the junior women’s category is really welcome – and will be hard fought – it’s the addition of a mountain-top finish that will garner the riders’ attention; creating as much concern as it will excitement.

The race will once again be based around Gorey, rather than racing to and from the Co Wexford town on the first and final stages. Once again, four stages are in store and one of those will be a TT.
