Location: Moira Demesne 
Host club: Dromara Cycling Club

Dromara Cycling Club hosted the 4th round of the Ulster Cyclo-cross series at the new venue of Moira Demesne, in the heart of the town of Moira, on Sunday 6 November 2011.  Club members were on site from 7 am setting out the 1.5 mile course around the park in time for the first races of the day.  The morning started off cold and frosty but the bright sunshine soon warmed up the park and the riders and provided a fine day for cycling.  The club is very grateful for the support of Lisburn City Council for providing access to the park which is hoped will be used again in the future.  The fine day was likely to be a factor in the great turn out of almost 170 riders across all age groups.
