Special awards for Outstanding promotion of Irish Mountainbiking in 2011:
Irish MTB could very easily remain totally invisible to the world if it weren’t for people having the drive and enthusiasm to do something to make a big difference to how MTB is perceived outside of the forests we race in. Be it making promotional/documentary videos, getting international exposure for events, or writing great race reports – it all makes a difference so we’d like to recognise some of these people:

EPIC MTB: This award goes to a club for elevating Irish MTB to a whole new level in terms of participation, sponsorship and media coverage with international exposure on Freecaster, Dirt website and all over Facebook.
Nobody ever dreamed that they would be pursued off a Wicklow mountain by a helicopter and the World’s fastest mountainbiking brothers all the way down the savage custom made singletrack but the these lads and ladies made it all possible and all riders on the day had a great brilliant biking which is what it is all about.

Adam Tarbett from FlowMTB for his informative & exciting reporting on the Irish DH races throughout the race season, and also for his rider interviews and bike reviews.  Adam always made an effort to write a unique and exciting report for each race which really helps build the atmosphere around the DH race scene.

Through the Roots team for documenting the growth of the Irish DH racing scene via their film and all the associated film clips featuring riders from various clubs in locations around the country.
The lads made this film as a college project but it grew to something of a much greater importance and exposure within the DH MTB community.
They hope to submit the film to one of the amateur film festivals so we wish them the best of luck with it and want to thank them for giving DH this valuable exposure.
