Foreword Dany: “This sad report below from Kazik Jankowsky, the driving force behind Starsky CC is heartbreaking, I feel for this gentleman, baffled by the decisions made by Cycling Ireland for reasons unknown, except for a rule provincial-wise, which could have maybe been accommodated somehow…but revoking 2 future events without the right to appeal!! For years now we kept in the dark, the members I meet every week all over the country telling me they are looking for an honest explanation, and not hiding behind “legal reasons” as answers…in times where it is difficult for organisers to promote races, financially risky, etc… this will not help!! So sorry for Kazik and his loyal friends, a colourful, and international club, with many cyclists from East Europe, South America, and Ireland in their ranks, has always been generous in prizes, and trophies in abundance…what a shamble!!! (Ps. But this is only one side of the story…would like to hear the other side too, but still a shame this has to happen)
