The first round of the much awaited gravity enduro race took place at O’Joyce woods in Co. Wicklow. This race was a mixture of downhill & cross country racing. The race attracted a big number of teams both from at home and indeed a few international outfits and of course Lakeside wheelers were represented on the day by, David & Richie Lenehan and Colm Lynch.
The three amigos set of early on Saturday morning, in perfect conditions for mountain biking, to get to the woods as to get their “Noble Steeds” set up and to do a recon on the 5 stage course in a very chilled out atmosphere. Sunday morning however had a very pre race feel and it was full throttle all day. After completing five hours of hard but enjoyable riding on awesome trails and our three boys finished in the top 40 overall out of over 300 participants! Next round will take place on 16th & 17th of June.
David and Richie Lehehan and Colm Lynch all set for a long day in the saddle
