One of the main talking points of the 2010 Kerry Group R�s Mumhan 2010 was the heroic ride that Neil Delahaye had done on Easter Sunday on the Waterville/Valentia stage.� It was an heroic effort on his own into the teeth of a howling wind.� To get away he attacked early with two others and dropped them on the climb on Valentia with some of the hardest riding still in front of him.� While winning the stage was a just reward for his effort, the lack of recognition for the combative nature of his ride was something the race organisers felt needed to be addressed.

The 2011 Kerry Group R�s Mumhan will have a prize at the end of each stage for the most combative rider.� The prize is a pair of Oakley Performance Sunnies.� At the end of each stage, the commissaries will review the day�s racing and decide what rider is most deserving of the award.� The organisers of the Kerry Group R�s Mumhan are delighted to be in a position to offer this valuable prize as it will reward aggressive riding and that is one of the core values of the Kerry Group R�s Mumhan. The Value of the sponsorship is in the region of �1,000.

Melina Joy
The prizes, from Oakley Performance Eyeware, for the most combative rider have been kindly sponsored by Melina Joy Opticians and supported by Urban Optics Killarney.� Melina is a member of Killorglin Cycling Club and a lifelong cycling enthusiast.� She was born, raised and educated in Killorglin and qualified as an optometrist out of DIT Kevin Street. Melina forged a career for herself in England over the past 25 years. She regards sport, at whatever level, as a much-needed ingredient to both develop and foster a spirit of determination for and in life. She is especially delighted to be able to give something back to the County in sponsoring this new category in Kerry Group R�s Mumhan.

The organisers of Kerry Group R�s Mumhan are delighted to accept this sponsorship as it fits so neatly into the philosophy of the race, which is to encourage aggressive racing.
