Irish Winter Series Round 2 – Bree Hill

This weekend saw the 2nd round of the Irish Winter Series which was being held in Bree Hill, County Wexford. It was a track that I had not been to in a few years and was cool to come back and see all the work that the locals have done. I was excited to get going, practice went well for me, I was having fun on the track which flowed really well even with the amount of rain during the day. I went for a quick tyre change to the Schwalbe Dirty Dan before the end of practice and rushed off for one final practice run.

My seeding run went well, I hit all my lines, only made one minor mistake and came down into 2nd place just behind Dan. You can see my seeding run which I captured on my Contour ROAM here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MQ2qp6IMoY. I grabbed a quick bite to eat and headed up for my race run.

My race run was great, I pushed it hard to the line and had a fairly clean run and managed to take the win. I was happy with this and was good to get my 1st win on board the Pulse before heading to Spain next week for some much needed sun and dusty trails.

Thanks to all my sponsors for their constant support – Chain Reaction Cycles, Nukeproof, Schwalbe, 100% Eyewear and Contour.

I will be setting off to Spain next week for some training so expect to see some cool Contour footage in the next few weeks.
