Adrian Van Der Lee has pictures from the race up now. Cool feature where you can search for pictures with your race plate number too.

Thanks guys. In more discomfort than pain but on the mend. Anyone know how my bike fared ..?!

Heal up quick Steve! 

I checked that your bike was locked up safe in the Biking.ie hut.  it looked OK - your helmet and goggles were with the bike too.  I spoke to both Niall and Leo (Leo works at B'stoe hut Monday to Friday) and they're fine to keep it locked up for you until you can collect it.

Glad to hear you're on the mend Steve must have been those race tyre pressures.


Really enjoyed that race format despite being a complete passenger by the end of Stage 4. Looking forward to the next one.


Is there usually only the one guy doing photos? Seems like a prime opportunity for a bit of competition unless its restricted by the event organizers, anyone know?

Cheers Dylan.


My mate runs a site in the UK for all race results which is great for settling those arguments in the pub or finding out who your nemesis are and hes adding more Irish races. www.rootsandrain.com


Also dead simple if you fancied making some money as a photographer but don't want the hassle of hosting a site, managing payment tagging etc. If anyone took any pictures you can add them on pick your price and away you go! 


Given him a nudge and results are now up in easy compare format [size=78%]http://www.rootsandrain.com/race5642/2017-apr-23-irish-gravity-enduro-1-ballinastoe-woods-co-wicklow/results/?ref=alert[/size]


chunk of club rider photos already up there if you haven't seen them already [size=78%]https://www.rootsandrain.com/sponsor6069/mad/[/size] and [size=78%]http://www.rootsandrain.com/sponsor6072/mad-mtb/[/size]

Now being a bit of a data nerd, I love that roots and rain website.

Hywel will have some pics from anyone who was racing around the same times as our wave but won't include you early birds!

I'm a bit late on pictures from last weekend, here is an album of the MAD crew I managed to catch:

I'll be putting up the full set on Roots and Rain soon, as soon as I figure all that side out.

Great photos Hywel.  Thanks so much for traipsing round the mountains after us.
