Gravity Enduro Round 1 Ballinastoe Woods, Wicklow 22/23 April

Gravity Enduro Round 1
Ballinastoe Woods, Wicklow
22/23 April

Ballinastoe kicks off 2017, setting of the infamous Blast, the 2013 National Championships and home to some of the most exhilarating trails on the east coast. Ballinastoe boasts some of the longest stages in the country and yet has some of the shortest transitions. The trails offer a great challange for all levels of rider, between technichial ability and pedal power, the faster you go, the harder it gets! Over the years the trails have been adjusted and climbs reduced, feeding the gravity back into the stages. If you haven't tried Enduro racing before, then this could be the one for you.

All signed up for this one.
Does anyone know if they are featuring the 'pump n grind' no pedalling stage this year?

From the rules on the Gravity website:

You must present your Cycling Ireland Competition Licence at registration or purchase a general one day licence (which covers you for the whole event) at a cost of 20.
If you have a Cycling Ireland Leisure Licence there is a top up fee of 10.

I assume from the above that all i'd have to pay is 10, since i have a leisure license?

Finbar, that's right, with a leisure licence, you will need to buy at day licence at each event.

Leah, Dermot - you each have a competition licence therefore you're covered for all events.  You don't need a day licence.

Registration starts at 9. I'd rather get it out of the way early and do a bit of practice.

I'll be there for 09:00 to register and head straight to the new sections for some practice.


Won't be doing a whole lot, have to conserve some energy for the race..!


The issue will probably be trying to get in/out of the field where you've to park so hoping to get there early enough to avoid a traffic jam.


The email, just received, said you could register in groups of 6 for those wanting to team up... could sort out something on Saturday morning if people are interested..
