I am very pleased that Tommy reacted to my request of participating in this series, Tommy became a personal friend of mine after we met at a CX in Cookstown, this while his son Marc was racing in the underage cats about 10 years ago. I started following Marc ever since, and when he became a junior, he got what he needed to be selected to go to Belgium, as a graduate, after becoming one of the top juniors in the land. The rest we all know, as he is now an established full-time cyclist in Belgium, racing at the top amateur level UCI 1.12, including pro races as an invited amateur. I was offered sponsorship from Tommy and his company Heaney Motors after Marc has been a few years in Belgium, before that, I couldn’t accept due to Marc’s participation in the selection process. Our integrity in mind we waited till it was appropriate to do so, Tommy wanted to help out other talented youngsters, and let them “Live the Dream” just like his son. Here an introduction told by Tommy yesterday to accompany his brilliant photos ” My interest in photography came about in tragic and sad circumstances. Being involved in youth motocross as Marc raced for a number of years. His best friend #338 sadly passed away at 16yrs old with cancer. At the funeral, his family had 100’s of photos which were great comfort for everyone… we had very few so I bought a camera and so my journey started…The cycling started out to catalogue Marc’s racing but after seeing how much riders liked to see photos of themselves, I regularly posted races to Facebook from races all over the country, hopefully, you all enjoyed them. With Marc racing abroad now I don’t go to as many races now, so I spend my time photographing my youngest daughter and our dogs, which is sometimes harder than capturing a cyclist at full tilt. Thank you to Dany and the Belgian Project for allowing me to share a selection of some of my favourites with you… believe me when I say there’s a lot more!! Hope to see you all through the lens sometime soon
