Stage 4 - Horse and Jockey (km0) to Kildare

2024 Stage 4

2024 Stage 4

Horse and Jockey – Urlingford – Ballyragget – Castlecomer – Killeshin – Carlow – Stradbally – Kildangan – Monasterevin - Kildare Town

After a transfer to Horse and Jockey, the early parts of stage four are on mostly flat and fast roads, yet things are sure to heat up after Ballyragget with two category three climbs in quick succession before and after Castlecomer.

The category one Gorteen climb is followed by a further two category two climbs on the roads between Castlecomer and Carlow which are sure to split things up at the head of the race.

Once the climbing finishes for the day, there's a relatively flat 60KM run into the finish in Kildare Town.

....two category three climbs in quick succession before and after Castlecomer.

We will have to wait and see if there's enough time for riders to regroup after the climbs or if someone can spoil the party ahead of the final stage.
