I would also like to thank the committee of the club for inviting me to do the MC job for the event, it is an honour to be involved in such a high profile event. They have just finished a very successful Individual TT League (6 rounds) and here a bit of review done by Marc Andrews who is the PRO of Emyvale CC “ Well we were truly blessed with the consistently fine weather throughout our league this year and the final round 6 of 6 was no exception. Many personal bests were achieved and have set the bar for the riders for next year’s event. Thank you to all of you who entered, we had a total of almost 70 entrants from over 25 clubs. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive with particular complements for the challenging technical course and effective marshaling. Speaking of which, special thanks once again to the marshals and volunteers without whom events such as these would not happen. The regular presence of photographers Sharon McFarland and Jerome Rafferty added a valuable extra dimension to the events and additionally, many riders commented on how they were able to use the photos to monitor their riding style and technique. Thank you, Sharon and Jerome, and last but not least,a thank you to the community of Tydavnet of allowing us to host the event in their wonderful village, see you next year“
