CL R8: Golden Ball, Thursday 29 July 19:00 was created by Luke Ginnell
Hi all,

Registration for Round 8 (19:00 start) now open: eventmaster.ie/event/nD4PCplH0v

This year, unfortunately there won't be a BBQ, for obvious reasons.

We are also asking people to go directly to the race start rather than congregating at the Golden Ball for a roll out, so please DO NOT meet at the Golden Ball.

The start point is at the shops on Kilgarron Hill near Enniskerry, and we would ask everyone racing to cycle out as there is no parking.

Marshals, it is absolutely vital that you show up on time. This is the most difficult race to marshal and Damien will need everyone there on the day.

Please check if you are down to marshal on the day.

More details coming later.

Thanks.

Please bear in mind that the race is NOT rolling out from the Golden Ball, but rather from the official KM0 at the shops on Kilgarron Hill.

Points for the top 8.

Enjoy!

If anyone is in need of refreshments after what surely will be an exhausting race, I'm planning on refuelling at the Golden Ball on the way home. They've a good few sheltered picnic tables in case of rain.

Apologies for the delay in updating the final round.

Here's the top 8 from the Golden Ball league closer. Congrats to Niall on a great win.

1. Niall Kieran
2. Tadgh Killeen
3. Eoin Kelly
4. Barry McMahon
5. Eoin Ahern
6. Patryk Rejmoniak
7. David Trenaman
8. Anthony Mulholland

And below is how the top 10 of the Points Classification looks. There are prizes for the top 10, so please get in touch with me to arrange.

Niall, Andrew and John all finished on 19 points, so were separated based on their most recent results, as were Eoin and Anthony on 14.

POINTS CLASSIFICATION TOP 10

1. Eoin Ahern - 42 points
2. Barry McMahon - 36
3. Tadgh Killeen - 27
4. Ruairi Byrne - 23
5. Niall Kieran - 19
6. Andrew Ryan - 19
7. John McCormack - 19
8. Luca Holmes - 17
9. Eoin Kelly - 14
10. Anthony Mulholland - 14

Congrats to Eoin on taking the classification. He was dominant throughout, albeit pushed very closely by Barry, who even took the lead in Round 6.

Unfortunately we weren't able to continue the GC due to problems with identifying riders!

That's it for the league for this year. I'll be stepping down as league rep now, so I'll wrap up by saying a big thanks to all those who helped with running it this year: Stephen O'Shea, Damien Long, Dick O'Brien, Eoin Ahern, John Twomey, Peadar Corbally and the whole committee.

A big thanks to everyone who took part, and to all those who raced. I hope it was enjoyable for everyone.

Some of you have already done so, but if those in the top 10 could contact Peadar, the club treasurer, via email, we'll look into arranging the prizes for you.
