Ryan Millar, director of BETTALIFE commented: “It’s been wonderful to follow the progress of this league throughout the year rewarding the more senior event riders who still remain as competitive as ever! We’d like to congratulate Deborah on her consistency during the season and wish her continued success in 2024 and beyond.”
