But the show must go on and the the 96 riders that signed on got into gear on what was a very FUN track with a Good mix of big jumps a few rocks and roots, bit of slippery mud towards the bottom and plenty speed up top,

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited down to Fairymount Farm in Roscrea Co. Tipperary to try out their new trails. When I got there I met 2 very nice guys, the owner John Kenny and the trail designer/builder Gerry Grimes. It is always so refreshing to meet a land owner that wants to actively encourage all sorts of activity on their land. John has given Gerry free reign to create trails however he sees fit and give him what ever assistance he needs.
With all of this Gerry has so far made 2 trails. The first tight, twisty and tricky track and the second newer track is a fun mix of tricky and fast sections. Nothing is too difficult as both John and Gerry want to have the trails usable to a variety of skill levels. I really am looking forward to what they create in the future
IDMS Round 4 in Bree Co. Wexford is coming up in a couple of weeks and is on the same weekend as the Irish Enduro Champs. Bree is a great track. Lots of fun with a good mix of jumps and technical sections. Well worth the trip.
