Cyclists ready for McCann Cup

The McCann Cup returns on Sunday

The McCann Cup returns on Sunday

OMAGH Wheelers CC will promote the 2016 McCann Cup which takes place on Sunday.

The event has been the club’s long-standing flag-ship event for many years, and it is once again organised and sponsored by club stalwart Hugh McCann who instils his passion and enthusiasm in the event.


Renowned for it’s great racing, great atmosphere, and great food, it’s one of the best races in Ulster.

The event features five races across the day: women, masters (50+), A4, A3, A2 and A1. The event attracts approx 300 cyclists across all five races, and the racing is usually fast and furious.

The McCann Cup course was used to host the 2013 All-Ireland Junior and A3 RR Championships.

In the interest of safety, we work with the local PSNI to implement a one-way traffic management system during the main races to reduce the risk on oncoming traffic meetings large groups of cyclists.

The event is generously sponsored this year again by Hugh McCann Building and Maintenance Contractor.

Further information can be found on our website:

The event sign-on location will move this year to St Patrick’s Hall, Main Street, Fintona. BT78 2AD.
