About the Event

Round 3 - Gortin Glen

There are 4 races in 2021 and each venue has its own unique set of challenges. Riders will visit some of Ireland’s most iconic mountain biking destinations along the way. It is aimed at intermediate – advanced riders that will race individually against the clock on the best terrain available at each venue.

Each race consists of up to 6 timed stages consisting of natural single track/ trail centre and are mostly gravity orientated. The lap including transitions and stages are approximately 16-24km. Stage times will be added together for a total time that will decide positions in each category. Transitions are mainly on fire road or single track and are NOT timed. Riders can chill with friends and make their way to the next stage at their own pace. Keep in mind there will be a time limit and cut offs in place for rider safety although this is set at a relaxed pace. The important bits are the descents! We are using the most reliable, non contact timing system available so riders can focus on the fun part. Specific information for each round will become available to competitors via email, social media and a briefing on the run up and at each event.

Cycling Ireland event guidelines have put a limit of 200 per day. This is based on a “first come first served basis”. We may increase this and we may also be forced to reduce the numbers. Our advice is to enter early. The plan is to split the categories each day, which you will choose when entering:


- Junior (14-16)

- Under 21 Men (17-20)

- Senior Men (21-29)

- Master A Men (30-34)


- Master B Men (35-39)

- Veteran Men (40-49)

- Super Veteran Men (50+)

- E-bike

- Hardtail Men (21+)

- Women (14+)

- Youth (12-13)

Please only enter the OPEN race if the category you normally ride in isn't available on that day.

There is an entry fee increase to allow for the additional medical cover, PPE and timing costs etc. I hope you understand but this is something we have to allow for. As you would expect there will be other changes to our normal schedule, set up and rules. We will just have to work through the current Government/ Cycling Ireland guidelines at the time.

Riders must hold a current Cycling Ireland race licence (or equivalent) or purchase a one day licence when entering.

Cycling Ireland will NOT be offering one day licence to riders UNDER 18 (age on the day) - you need to be a member of Cycling Ireland.
