Thursday 18th August sees the final round of the 2016 Dermot McGrath League take place.
Any one of the top 6 riders have a mathematical chance of walking away as league winner tomorrow evening, though it is extremely tight at the top between a few scratch men. And discounting the battle for overall position almost all of the minor placings are at stake and the possibility of anyone in the top 15 walking away with some silverware for the mantelpiece!
The catch was made early last week but it won’t be as easy for the semi scratch and scratch men this week. The handicap is going out and they will have to ride hard and honestly to take the spoils. It’s all to play for!
