Default Armoy Road Races !!

Armoy, a small village near Ballymoney County Antrim, Birth place of the late Joey and Robert Dunlop now hold a Road Race every year. This was the third one to be held and the first time i went to see it. What a great day i had, one of the best meetings i have been to in a long time. Hope you like some of these. ???

All very nice Tom.

But I especially like that last shot...the guys are really pushing their bikes....coming out of the corner hard and fast....the crook of the heads and the tension of two riders is very evident in your picture....two racers in the heat of battle...trying to better each other....be interesting to know if the guy behind...got ahead of the racer in front...

IMO...you caught the essence of competitive racing in this last pix.

Thanks Graham and Les, Armoy was fantastic i wish i was 30 years younger i would be out their doing it !!! My photos just dont do it justice. The Ulster Grand Prix is this week but i dont think i will make it up for Saturdays race, again the health is playing up. I was up on Wednesday for practice only two sessions rain stopped play. Graham you will have to come over next year with your friend i think you would enjoy it. You can even stay at my place to save you a few on hotels !! i am sure the wife wouldnt mind.

Cheers for now Tom

I've never raced, just in my youth owned and ridden many a motorcycle. Still have two as you know.

I do wish we (Canada) had the amount of racing activity that you enjoy over in Ireland.
