Well, it is time to come out of hibernation and do some updates on the site!

I thought you might like to see some of my favourite photos from the 2003 season. Out of the many in contention, I have managed to whittle it down to 44, so please have a good look at the gallery pages here.

You will find all the 2004 race calendars updated (albeit a bit late). I have created a downloadable copy of the Irish Road & Short Circuit Race Calendar, so you can print it off and keep it to hand so you know where all the race action is this season, plus I've colour co-ordinated it so you can see visually what type of race meeting is taking place.

Last but by no means least, I have included two new links :-

The Cookstown 100 Official Website, created and maintained by Geoff Bell and a custom bike site by Jimmy Quinn :- Jimmy Quinn Customs.

So...all that is left to say is roll on the first race of 2004 so that I can take some more photos!
