Round 1 of the Biking.ie Biking Blitz
11 February
Ballinastoe


The 8th edition of the exciting Biking Blitz Series kicks off in February 2018 with events taking place in Wicklow, Limerick, Galway and Dublin. The Biking Blitz is a mass start cross country mountain bike event, aimed primarily at beginners but with something for everyone. There are series points up for grabs at each event, with an overall series devised from your best three results from any four events. There are two categories, "Baggy Shorts" for beginners or "Super Pro" for more experienced riders, plus youth categories from U6 to U18. Mountain bike trail centres are used exclusively for these events to ensure a fast flowing course in all weather conditions. So saddle up for the first time or put your training to the test at the 2018 Biking Blitz.

Anyone else going to this?
I've just signed up today for the super pro, only ever raced in the baggy shorts once before.
Any tips, tricks etc?

Lycra & 60psi in narrow tyres Ronan and you'll be flying..!
Seriously though, best of luck. Great to see you back out on the bike again.

Burst yourself up the first hill and into the first section of single track. Always a bottle neck there so if you go hard and get into it ahead of the bottle neck you'll get some breathing room on those who hit the bottle neck


More so applies to those racing the Baggy Shorts though
