Sean Landers wins the Mark Mullen League 2021

Congratulations to Sean Landers of UCD, who won this year’s league by the narrowest of margins from Drogheda Wheelers rider, Shane Coll. Sean won the final round with Shane finishing second meaning that both riders finished on 45 points (each rider’s best 5 results count towards their total). As per the league rules, the tie was decided on the outcome of the final round. And fittingly, Sean Lenehan finished third on the night to ensure that he also finished third in the overall standings. Well done to all three riders for some fine performances and indeed to everyone who took part and made this year’s event a safe and successful one.
