Thank you to everyone who came and took part in the Racing795 Mount Leinster MTB Challenge. It was an absolute pleasure to welcome you all to Bunclody.
We were blown away by the speed of the S1 racers at the sharp end. They just can’t help it, racing is in their DNA. “Not a race? I don’t understand.”
We were equally blown away by the achievements of some riders at the other end of the field. OK, they might have taken four hours to get around, but in another life they might have spent Sunday in bed or on a barstool.
Most of all, we were delighted with the way everyone got into the spirit of it. Fast or slow, tall or small, at the end of the day we’re all mountain bikers riding great trails in a beautiful country. It’s good to do it together once in a while.
We’d like to thank…
