Round 1 of the 2015 Hayes Fuels EMS6 league took place at Toome on the 26th April. Despite a later start to the season, we experienced 4 seasons in one day. Unfortunately they were, Autumn, winter, winter, and a tiny bit of spring. The riders gathered in decent sunshine, but as usual at Toome and its Lough effected mini climate, the strong winds made things very unpredictable. Generally conditions were slow with strong crosswinds which only assisted slightly on the shorter homeward leg, however the real problem was for the time keepers, who due to the sudden downpours, rain capes fitted over numbers, missed starts, along with the strong winds had a tough job identifying finishers despite 5 people on the line, with 2 separate timers, 2 spotters, and a photographer.… Read more

This did not discourage the large number of Youth riders who turned up or the women and 50 Plus Masters who were also racing in the morning events.
In the afternoon there were two races on offer, namely a combined A1 to A3 race and a separate A4 race.… Read more

Instead it was left to the sizeable crowd of spectators who gathered at the top of the tough climb up to the finish line to cheer on the riders and take in the spectacular views over the bay.… Read more
