Great battles expected tomorrow (Sunday 13th October) in Irvinstown near Enniskillen, entries over 280 which is a great number, as for many a long car drive away going to the far west of the Ulster Province. The Necarn CX had his 1st edition in 2015 and since then the nrs have gone upwards each year…no wonder…Lakeland CC has created a course in the beautiful grounds of Necarn Castle (Irvistown) that would be championship material due to his challenges in the course…some nifty climbs, technical wood area’s and spectator-friendly grass finish area. A great welcome is guaranteed by the Fermanagh club and his volunteers have been working hard to get the 2019 edition ready. The Belgian Project will be there to do the MC job which I am looking forward. Some fears battle’s to be expected as some of the best in Ireland have entered to shake up the classifications in the Ulster League…here a few candidates for the podiums…would I be far wrong?… well I tell you tomorrow…

The men’s Elite & Junior A-Race
The form says Graham Boyd, but some heavy challenges could come from the Under 23 entries
Never rule out this fellow…Thomas!!! Creighton fast start could set him in the driving seat…
This two chaps could make it very difficult for anyone…I see Sean Nolan and Lee Harvey competing for the podium places or even the top place!!

A young man who could have something to say upfront…Darren Rafferty has to be taken into account and this first-year junior could upset the big guns (photo taken from lee Sommerville’s social media page)
The women’s Elite & Junior race
Already 2 wins this season should see Rachel Irvine as a favourite for this race, but the in-form Niamh Mc Kiverigam who also has won this year could be a big danger…throw-in some girls from the South, we have a race on for sure!!!
The entry of Asia Bula is a welcoming addition to the lady race…the very popular Polish architect is a well-loved competitor in our region, always ready for a chat and just loves what she does…if she has a bit of luck and no mishaps she could also be very close
I will go for Niamh to win the race…her form and hunger for success should do the trick, but then I am a bit biased as this award-winning girl is also one of my protegee’s of the project (Photo courtesy of Gareth Gibbons at the Super Cross in Dublin last weekend)
