Two distances are on offer, 135km and 98km, both starting in Killarney town centre.

While Ireland may lack the long Alpine climbs of L'Etape du Tour riders will find themselves tested: the longer route packs in 1600m of elevation, with notable climbs including Molls Gap and the spectacular Ballaghbeama Pass on the Iveragh Peninsula.

Three entry packages are available, Bronze, Silver and Gold VIP priced €109, €149 and €355 respectively. All tiers include event medal, feed stations and post-ride pasta party, with Silver and Gold entrants gaining perks including KOM and sprint timings, Zwift training rides, and the chance to rub shoulders with pro riders on a recovery ride the following day.

Entries for the 98km distance are priced €10 cheaper than the long route, at €99, €139 and €345.

Over 2000 places sold yesterday when priority entries went on sale and the event is expected to sell out quickly.
