For Team Joe Barr the race is home.
It’s the part of the journey where all the effort and all the training subsides because finally there’s only one thing left to do, and that is…race.
Joe has long believed that if you can master the roads in Ireland you can race anywhere in the world and Joe has raced in many ‘far away’ places. read more...
The Team Joe Barr 200, The TJB Coastal 350 and The Joe Barr 500 have grown out of our desire to showcase the incredible terrain that Ireland has to offer the endurance cyclist. We also want to give every one of our racers a world-class endurance experience. The minute you register you’ll have access to our expertise through the Race Ready workshop. Between your registration and sign-on we’re here to answer all your questions as quickly as possible. And as soon as you walk through the door at sign-on we’ll be there to welcome you and we’ll be there at the finish line too to capture your achievement and share it with you.
We have three distances to choose from.
- If you want to explore what lies beyond Sportive riding then the 200-mile course is for you.
- If you’re ready to race through the day plus tackle the challenges that racing through the nighttime hours brings then The TJB Coastal 350 may be the perfect distance.
- If you’re ready for a tougher, longer distance or if you want to participate in the World Ultra-Cycling Association 500-mile World Championship then The Joe Barr 500 is for you.
Joe and team have personally designed these courses to take you off familiar routes and onto the wild and lonely roads that fuel our passion for endurance cycling.
These routes will test all aspects of endurance racing.
Consider these races a personal invitation from Joe to come and experience the unique challenge that only Irish roads can bring the endurance cyclist.
Joe and team look forward to meeting you all.
I just want to say thanks to you, Joe and the team for a great event. The entire event was very professional and every member of the team was courteous and appreciative. It was great to see so many of the team out on the course. There was a great buzz from Friday evening right through until Saturday night.
I really enjoyed the event and was delighted with how everything went; especially given the weather conditions. I will definitely be back next year.....which race will be the question :)
The World Ultra-Cycling Association (WUCA) has accredited these races.
