Spring Cup 2007

Report by Kevin O'Boyle:
The Spring Cup in Denmark was held near Roskilde this year, and was very successfully run and organised. To go to an event of this scale and compete on  the extremely technical maps and ground was an extremely valuable experience for myself and I'm sure the other Irish who participated. It also shows what level of fitness is needed to compete in these competitions. Realistic training goals can be set and achieved based against the fitness of the other competitors.
The event itself was set in forest for the Night-O, Classic and also Relay on technical ground that was both mentally and physically tough. What stood out for me was the sheer size of the event and the amount of competitors.
The accomodation was excellent and provided very well. And on top of everything it was a very fun experience! I would not hesitate in going again and am already looking forward to next year! Also a big thank you to Ruth, Darren and Niamh who helped hugely and put a huge amount of work into organising the trip, event and accommodation.
