Enduro National Championships

On Sunday 20 August 2017 the first Irish National Enduro Championships took place at Carrick Mountain, Co. Wicklow hosted by Biking.ie.  This was a demonstration event and also doubled up as the Gravity Enduro championships as well so there was lots to play for.  The running of the national championships was part of recognition of the discipline within Cycling Ireland with a set of rules produced accordingly (see rules here).

Emerald Enduro – Irish riders triumph

Round 3 of the Enduro World Series took place at Carrick Mountain, Co. Wicklow on the weekend of 13-15 May. This is the second time that this international event has visited the venue and it is testament to the great job that Niall Davis and the Biking.ie crew did last year to see its return.  The format was as before, 7 timed Enduro stages.  Like the previous year the sun shone and the crowds gathered and lined the stages, in costumes and making lots of noise.   Greg Callaghan relived the fairytale of 2015 and took the win again in the Men’s category, much to the delight of the crowds of spectators.  Leah Maunsell took the win in the Women’s Under 21s, Killian Callaghan took the win in the Men’s Under 21s, with the legend that is Robin Seymour taking first in the Masters.

A great job again by Niall and the small army of helpers.
