Yeah one of the owners of The Wall climbing gym in Sandyford is helping organise the Killaloe round. Was talking to him about it on Monday. Sounds like a great event - obviously big demand.

Ah no Dylan, that's a pity. You can set your alarm now for Round 3  ;)
Seems to be quite the build up to these and lots of interest in them so I guess the format was successful last year. And only 25.

Post by: krezi on 22, February, 2017, 11:27:46 PM
why are there only so few spots? Gravity enduro is like 350...
Title: Re: Grassroots Enduro Series
Post by: muckwarrior on 22, February, 2017, 11:37:44 PM
I guess with only half as many stages and letting people do them multiple times, there's no way they could accommodate near as many riders without it becoming too crowded.
Title: Re: Grassroots Enduro Series
Post by: DylanW on 23, February, 2017, 07:21:12 AM
Yeah even last year with smaller numbers it still had the feel of the crowds of the gravity. It's a great format it's very relaxed and a great day on the bike well worth it..

So who is heading down to Kilaloe on Sunday morning? Should be a good crowd and some good stages.
Anyone want to travel down as it's a long drive on your own?

Did you make it down Dylan? Didn't see you all day.

Bloody great day though. On the one hand, racing completely blind is a bit mental, but on the other, if you get a mechanical or crash then you get another chance so it doesn't completely screw up your race. It also means that you can't really blame bad luck for your position ☺️

No I never made it in the end Aaron. I had everything ready and in the van to go then a mate of mine who I hadn't seen for 3 years arrived home as a surprise, I'm sure you know how the rest played out 😂😂
Raging I never made it though....any results? How did everyone's day go for them?

Post by: ruth:D on 10, April, 2017, 11:38:36 AM
Oh no Dylan, was wondering where you were!


It was a brilliant day. Even though there was only 3 stages, there was a nice variation in each one. Some fairly technical stuff but good fun. Weather was perfect and Killaloe is a beautiful spot.


Haven't seen final results yet but James Fleming from MAD got an impressive 2nd in his category!

Well done Jayo and Ruth!!


That was a great days racing. Stage two seemed to be a firm favourite with everyone. Would have liked to have put in a second run on Stage 3 after sending the bike off into a small tree and having to wrestle it back out  :o
