You can expect a relaxed non-competitive atmosphere, plenty of challenging climbs, stunning scenery, open mountain and forest trails, and lots of rugged, natural singletrack. The route is approximately 35km long with about 1300m of ascent. A shorter distance will also be available. We expect average riders to complete the long course in 3.5 to 4 hours. More details on the route.

The first Mount Leinster MTB Challenge took place in 2013 in glorious July sunshine. The event drew 175 MTB riders from across the spectrum of disciplines and abilities. Feedback was universally positive. Racing795 is looking forward to welcoming an even bigger crowd on August 30th.
