Belgian Project bursary sponsor NDCC has promoted over the last few seasons this great series, designed for youth and seniors in a safe environment, pan flat with smooth tarmac surface in the fastest motor circuit of Ireland. This year I was invited to do the MC job which I was very honoured to do so. The 2 first rounds had been awful due to rain and high winds for the riders, the 3rd round had sunshine which made it more pleasant and the final round got the same condition and just perfect to finish in style. The numbers not great but who was there enjoyed some fierce racing. The underage youth had in many cases their first experience in cycle races, some as young as 4 and this to the great delight of the supporters behind the safety barriers at the pit stop finish line. A great event that should be more supported
The underage girls and boys raced on a smaller circuit to suit their age and when you see the smiling faces you know the virus of cycling is embedded.
