Only a week to go – Leinster League Round 1

Leinster League Round 1, the eagerly anticipated 2011 season opener, takes place next Sunday, 20th March. With less than a week to go the countdown is well and truly on.  The course is nearly ready and we’re scouring the internet for favourable weather forecasts.

The venue is the same as last year, but the 2011 course is longer and more challenging, featuring most of 2010’s exciting singletrack with a few new sections added to keep things interesting. Last year’s race attracted 130 racers from all over Ireland. Post-race feedback was extremely positive so we’re expecting even greater numbers this year.

Some of Ireland’s finest mountain bikers have already signed up, and with the new categories in place, the racing will be intense. The Senior 1 line-up is already looking savage, with more to come!

Registration will close at midnight on Friday 18th so don’t miss out.

IMPORTANT: Registration and payment for this race is online-only.

Info, online Registration, directions and start times are all available here

Leinster League Round 1 – Online Registration Open

Racing795 is once again delighted to be hosting Leinster XC League Round 1. The race is on 20th March, in the same venue as last year just outside Bunclody, Co Wexford. We’ll be using all of last year’s singletrack with a few extra bits added to extend the lap, so you know it’s going to be fun.

Online Registration is now open.

Please note that registration and payment is exclusively online for this year’s race. We think you’ll find the system pretty convenient and easy to use. For us, the big bonus is that it will reduce admin effort and eliminate the need to handle any cash on race day

Now, just in case anyone is only coming down for the feed, we regret to announce that there will be no Thai food this year!  Last year’s catering was a once in a lifetime deal thanks to some good friends of ours. This year’s fare will be modest but delicious and wholesome.

Of course it’s not all about the food. Those who were with us last year will remember a fun, challenging but fair course, ridable for all abilities. We’ll also have some nice spot prizes so you won’t have to win your race to have a chance of snagging some loot.

Hope to see you all on the 20th March. More race info here
