The An Post Rás 2013 heads from Mitchelstown to Carlow today.

Here is a look back to the Friday stage from the 1977 Rás. The cyclists were traveling from Clonmel to Courtown. At a feeding station there seems to be some confusion for the team from Belgium.

Paddy Flanagan of the Irish team explains what is happening with the Russians.

This clip is taken from 'Rhapsody on Wheels' a documentary on the 1977 Rás broadcast 01 July 1977.

The commentator is Jim Sherwin.
