Belgium national cyclocross coach Rudy de Bie played host to the latest National Cyclocross Development Squad day last weekend (2 December 2017). Twenty two riders availed of the vast experience and guidance of Rudy at the National Sports Campus in Dublin. Some of the discipline’s most notable pro riders and world champions such as Sven Nys, Bart Wellens and Mario de Clerq all came through the cyclocross ranks under the close guidance and mentoring of Rudy de Bie.
The Board of Cycling Ireland has just approved the Enduro National Championships for 2018 after the successful test event held in 2017. The Off-road Commission is therefore seeking expressions of interest in running the 2018 event. There is no set date for this event.
After the recent AGM there were two roles which were not filled in this year’s Cycling Ireland Off-road Commission. A youth development co-ordinator and a cross-country co-ordinator. Both positions are very important for the commission and we would love to fill these roles with passionate people. If you feel you would like to come on board and help out please forward your name to email@example.com as soon as you can.
Expressions of interest are being sought from clubs who would like to host a round of the Irish Cross-country MTB National Point Series (NPS) in 2018. Provisional dates have been pencilled in the calendar (see below).
The 2018 season looks like another packed one for all off-road disciplines.
The calendar link here includes international dates in the various disciplines that some Irish riders will be attending.
All disciplines would like you to register early for their events. We need to support the organisers in order to ensure the races take place.
Keep an eye out on the various discipline website for more details.
If you know of any additions or amendments for this calendar please email firstname.lastname@example.org
More details to follow but save the date.
