Title: Enduro Champs, Carrick Mountain, 19/20 August
Post by: MAD Committee on 09, April, 2017, 08:55:02 PM
Enduro Champs
Carrick Mountain
19/20 August

Carrick Mountain is without a doubt the riders favourite location! After a break in 2016 we are delighted to see it back on the series. Lovely flowing trails, all natural, sweeping through such a diverse woodland... it's just paradise. And what's even more exciting is the selection of tracks that have now developed since the Enduro World Series has visited.

I've signed up for this in a timely manner for a change. Who else is in? Gonna be great to get back to Carrick!
I'm guessing the racing ban kicks in this friday...

Not going to make this one unfortunately. It's going to be a cracking race no doubt.

With the forecast looking dodgy for the next few days, it's probably worth mentioning that the biking.ie crew were checking that riders had a rain jacket at Mount Leinster. It's part of the mandatory kit I think, so don't forget it or it could ruin your day.

Hi I wanted to go for a ride at Carrick on friday, are the trails closed in advance of this race?  I read about "practise ban"???  racing
I'm not entered for the race, just in the area on friday.

If you are not racing then you are free to ride away! Practise ban only applies to those racing. Enjoy!

I'd just add that the hill will probably be taped up in prep for the weekend. The entrances and exits to the race trails may be taped shut so be wary of that if you're heading down a trail that's taped for practice/race day. Don't damage or interfere with the tape. There may even be metal barriers across entrances/exits so take care!

Thanks guys I appreciate the help.Is it OK to gently go around/under the tape and ride those trails?

Its always better to seek forgiveness than permission  ::)

PS watch out for folks who actually might be working on the trails, marking the course etc.

We are good so nobody will be run over.

What Stephen said...be good, take care and it should be ok. On the plus side the trails could be nicely marked out for you if you don't know them.

Aiming to get registered as early as possible tomorrow.
Probably arrive at Carrick about 8:30 or so, register and head up to practice straight away.
Anyone else going early?

Yeah that was stellar! we got out early and it was only on the 6th stage that the weather turned. The 5 stages before that were riding brilliantly. Fantastic day on the bike and one of the best Enduro events I've ever taken part in.

Seeing you guys rolling in when we were just going up to 5 was pretty crushing lol.


Mega day.

Ha, yeah I really felt for anyone who was still out racing in that rain when we were done, changed into dry clothes and tucking into pizza. Some riders were just at their lunch stop.


It was an excellent day, though fairly tough going!

Cahir media have some pics up. Can't find anymore photos though. It's a shame Adrian was at this round.
