The Racing795 Mount Leinster MTB Challenge is a mountain biking sportive of 40-45kms distance along the best mountain biking trails in the Blackstairs.

More details over the coming weeks. Meanwhile, to give you a flavour of the event, here is some info from the first Challenge which took place in 2013.


The Racing795 MTB Challenge 2013 was a 40km MTB “sportive” taking in the best of Blackstairs mountain biking. The average mountain biker completed this route in 3.5 to 4 hours. There was also a shorter version, a 25km section of the overall loop including many of the best bits. This version took the average biker 2 to 2.5 hours.

The Challenge was accepted by all sorts, weekend warriors and tourists, legends of XC and Downhill, some of the fastest racers in the country, and some complete beginners. All different and all the same, riding bikes and loving it!
