Last Sunday saw a good turnout for the first of Setantas MTBO events in the Wicklow area. Northern rider Bobby Smyth was third in the long course close behind Waterfords Paul Allen and Setanta rider Philip Brennan. Full results can be found here.
The second of two mountain bike orienteering events will take place this Sunday at Djouce Woods. Parking will be in the main (north) car park in Djouce Woods and the event will be signposted heading south out
of Enniskerry and from Kilmacanogue.
There will be a long and a short course similar to last week at Castletimon, with the same mixture of forest roads, single track and a bit of route choice thrown in to keep you interested. Course distance and climb will be about 30% longer than last week, so some of you may need to bring a packed lunch.
Entry fee is 10 euro for seniors and 8 euro for juniors. Electronic timing will be used.
Start time is 11.30 to 13.00. The usual cost of hiring an SI card, and charge if you lose it, applies.
Don’t forget to bring your bike helmet along with your bike; they’re compulsory.
Hopefully see some of you this Sunday,
Any queries, then please give me a buzz at 086 8150512.
