Donard-Commedagh Horseshoe - results .British Championship 1.
Big apologies to ignoring Tom Saville, being 1st U23, and this being in a very strong grouping indeed!
The expected stuff from Ireland, hard, steep, plenty to be slipping on, and had the clag been down, plenty to be getting lost in. Donard/Commedagh has oft been a Championship course, but an extra loop this year stepped it up a good notch. Start at sea level, climb to nearly 3000ft, and plenty more to come. Threatened bad weather never came, so clear, cold, a bit of snow on the top.
Rhys was 3rd, right close to Rob Hope and Sam Tosh at the finish. But crucially the others packed in tight, Neil, Tom Saville, Rob and Dave Taylor. I'm presuming that gives 1st Team. Now for a special mention for Keith. Dave Taylor, 1st V50, and Spyke - 2nd V50, superb, but the Team needs three, and it's that last counter which is so important. Keith, as one would expect, delivered the goods, and I'm told it was 1st MV50 team. But the MV40 were effectively one short, Mike Nolan coming also well up. But maybe? 3rd?
So please can loads of others consider getting these entries in, to add that crunch depth to the teams.
Carshare wasn't last but not so many behind me.
An excellent weekend, and hope that many more will make plans for next year, most likely to be their AS course.
