Tough auld going out there today. The trails looks perfect but there were lots of greasy roots to catch you out. I ended up on my back a good few times. Very physical stages with a fair bit of pedalling in them. Bring on tomorrow. Head down and pull like dogs! Good luck everybody

It was like two different venues - wet and slippery everywhere up top and bone dry on the lower sections.  Good luck and enjoy the racing tomorrow everyone.

That was a great day! Trails were super nice tho still a bit greasy in parts, I got caught out by a few muddy roots up top.
Well done to Leah, Niamh, Finbar, Fergal, Mantas and whoever else I'm forgetting on popping their Gravity Enduro cherry  ;D 
It was brilliant to see over 20 women racing out on the hill. Well done to Francois on his 4th place and to everyone who raced!


Devastated to hear that it was Steve that crashed on Stage 2 - hope are doing ok, let us know?! And Pete, we got your message over the MC that you were doing fine in the hospital. Speedy recovery to you both!

Delighted to have that done, was great fun, but tough keeping up with the girls! I didn't come last, barely, but lots of scope for improvement i think  ;)


I hope Steve n Pete feel better soon!

Really enjoyed that. Might have caught the enduro bug! 
Loads of room for improvement but happy enough that I got through without crashing!  And loving the Yeti on those trails

Great company for the day in Ruth, Leah, Finbar - and Spud from time to time.

Really sorry to hear that Pete and Steve crashed.  Hope you're both doing ok

Was a good day out alright. I never finished stage 2 in the end. The one thing I learned is that I'm not fit enough, stage 3 was a killer on the legs.
Hope you're doing better Steve, Niall Davis has your bike and it seemed to be OK.

Well done to all who raced over the weekend, was great fun and everyone seemed to be having a good time. Feels good to be back between the tape

Healing vibes to both Steve and Pete, hope the recoverys are swift.
