The 2nd round of the First Tracks Enduro Cup took place at Bigwood, just outside Newry. With heavy rain on the Friday night the riders were in for a treat coming into the first day of practice.
Saturday was great fun for me, I was enjoying being back on the MTB after a few weeks off racing on the road bike . After doing a full loop of the course I was excited to get going for race day. I opted against doing 2 laps as there was lots of pedalling on the stages so I was keeping my legs fresh for Sunday.
I had a good day out on the bike and spent most of the day doing the loop with my team mate Kelan and James MacFerran, all of my stages were consistent enough with only a few big mistakes throughout the day. I ended up 5th overall behind my team mate and some big names so I was happy with how I got on with the limited time I have spent on the MTB at the minute. I’m looking forward to the EWS in Ireland in a few weekends time
All in all I was happy with my performance, as it stands I am currently leading the series after two rounds Thanks to all my sponsors for their continued support, Nukeproof, Bell Helmets, Schwalbe, SRAM, Ride 100%, Mucky Nutz, Point1 Athletic Development.
