THE first round of an exciting new mountain bike race series kick off at Tracton Woods near Carrigaline recently and there was great success in the event for West Cork based riders.
The event was hosted by www.mbcc.ie which is one of Cork’s growing mountain bike clubs.
Despite some pretty wet weather in the days preceding the race a large crowd attended on the day with 109 adults signing on throughout the categories and 45 youth riders racing.
The trail was a testing course as the rain created a very muddy atmosphere. This was to be wintertime mountain biking at its best.
