We can start of 2021 with fund raising by local racer David Walsh who physically challenged himself and raised fantastic donations shared between the Injured Riders Welfare Fund and the Air Ambulance NI.
In 2020 our fund raising was severely curtailed as the road racing events and race meetings throughout Ireland were cancelled or postponed due to COVID 19.
With only the Cookstown 100 being run in September 2020 generally 2021 does not bode well for these road racing events and race meetings as they are already being cancelled or postponed.
This not only affects race supporters but the businesses that sponsor races, the race organisors, the volunteers who make events happen and most important the riders and their families who race with their passion to keep the sport alive!
We can only hope that the work done by our NHS – all other essential workers and the delivery of the COVID 19 vaccine and other measures helps to keep us all save, so we can return to have some decree of normality!
