Event will be a Mass start for all competitors at 12.00 Noon, and will be over a 35km course [2 laps], with all the flowy singletrack in Killruddery from last years Nationals as well as a big Climb up high onto the small Sugarloaf, and long descent too. As everyone is riding the same course we are leaving out ‘The ROCK’ but We’ve found something else as spectacular

We are going to run the Underage on a Mini Challenge Course, one loop, starting just after the start of the other categories.

We are having a Top 10 prize list for the 10 fastest riders overall and awards for the various categories, and the series then for the categories also.

Entry fees:
All Senior Cats €20
Juniors €15
Underage €5

**We are not running a two day event as previously planned, that idea went a bit pear shaped this year, So the Event is Sunday only. There is No pre-riding on Saturday 25th July, but you can see the course early on Sunday Morning, we will be open for sign on at 9.30, Sign on will close at 11.30am

Thanks Robin

Spare tube – You’re sure to get a puncture eventually so it’s wise to have a spare tube with you. Basic tools – at a mininum you should have tyre levers and allen keys for the bolts on your bike. There is no charge for the course but everyone will have an opportunity to join MAD afterwards. Over three weekends we’ll introduce riders to off-road riding and the trails. Our much-anticipated MTB introductory course is starting this month.

There is a sort of old vehicle track heading roughly north across the open land, I reckon this dates from the time the trees in this area were felled a few years ago. With this in mind, we are thinking of clearing a new section of trail (keenly spotted by Alan Ayling, trail finder/designer extraordinaire) up in Slade.

We have trimmed a few minutes of the original lap time by removing some climbs, accelerating/re-aligning some of the singletrack sections, and raking and smoothing out as many sections as we can. Our intent is to provide the fastest and most fun course of 2010, and that you don’t even remember the climbs – just all the fun stuff.
