In order to take part in any off-road racing riders must have insurance from our governing body Cycling Ireland. Insurance can be taken out on an annual basis or as a Event Licence. All competitors are required to produce their Cycling Ireland (annual) licence in order to receive their race number.
Day licenses will be available to purchase on race day, the cost of a day licence will be €20 for non-CI members and €10 for CI members.
In order to compete in Irish National Championships events, you must have an “IRL” UCI code on your licence (be of Irish Nationality). You cannot partake in the National Championship events on a Event Licence
What type of licence do I need?
A Non Competition licence is the most basic form of licence (these are deemed ‘non-race’ licences), if you purchase this, you will also need to purchase an Event Licence for every race you enter. This is the recommended licence type if you will only be doing a few races per year.
A Limited Competition licence allows you to compete in all offroad events without having to purchase an Event Licence for every race you enter.
Where can I get a licence?
You can buy a licence on the Cycling Ireland website HERE, or you can purchase an Event Licence at each of the NPS events.
Award of licences to riders of other nationalities – it is important to note that the issuing of the licence is completely independent of the applicant’s nationality and the nationality of his or her team or club.
