A little piece from club member Ian on a recent MTB endurance race. Long range weather forecast was mixed – but it ended up being beach weather all weekend, including 33C on the drive from the ferry to Plymouth.

Getting close to the SERC one day.A tough course that has been already tested by some of the country’s top A1s this year. The U12,U14 and U16 are the future of Irish cycling. With some top names coming through the youth setup. The TT in the morning is a nice test for all riders there is no where to hide and a pure test of speed, power and mental resilience. The second stage has a lovely sharp and short hill that acts as the finish line also, any riders cursing this say a prayer instead it is right beside the […]

After five rounds of competitive racing in the A1, A2 and A3 category Conor Short of the South East Road Club claimed the top spot on the podium without having to put in too much effort in the final round. Shorts nearest rival for the top prize, Paul Byrne was unable to race on the night, so on paper it was between Short and Andy McGuire from the Rossbury racing club in Newross, however paper never refused ink and as the race unfolded Short only had to stay out of trouble to claim the overall title.
