By Tadhg Moriarty, Press Officer R�s Mumhan


23 categorized climbs over the 487 km route await the 150 riders plus International field that will assemble for this years
KERRY GROUP RAS MUMHAN 4 Day International Cycle Race to be held In Killorglin, County Kerry in a little over 4 weeks time over the Easter week-end , starting on Good Friday April 6th until Easter Monday April 9th.


The big one will be the Summit finish of stage 2 on Easter Saturday, at the top of the Conor Pass, after a tough 130km in West Kerry, the only category 1 climb in the race. This was a huge attraction last year with Dutch man Leon Burger winning the stage after he escaped from the leading group of 5 riders on the climb to the Conor Pass, where he was greeted by a big crowd, over a minute ahead of Ryan Sherlock, & Paul Griffin who led in the rest of the breakaway group.


There are 4 category 2 Climbs to be negotiated over the week-end. On Good Friday�s stage 1 at half way Just before the Village of Scartaglin on the way to Castleisland. Sunday�s stage in South Kerry has the 3 other Category 2 climbs, with the 2 later ones the toughest, just after the village of Chapletown on the Famous Valentia Island at the 88km mark and at St Finian�s Bay with 25km to go on the 142km stage to the finish in Waterville.


The 5 category 3 climbs are spread over the first three days , with 1 on Friday , two on Saturday on the loop around Slea Head before Dingle and two more on Sunday to keep the climbing men happy. There are 10 of the 13 category 4 climbs on the finish line at the top of the hill up through Killorglin on the final laps Of the last stage of the 4 days of great racing.


Dutch man Leon Burger had a major battle with Mark Dowling for the KOM Jersey and his win on the big Climb to the Conor Pass was the difference at the end.
