Irish National Downhill Championships at Rostrevor MTB Trails


Rostrevor Mountain Bike Club are hosting the Irish National Downhill Championships this weekend at the Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails.

The event, one of the biggest of the mountain bike calendar, is being sponsored by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council, NukeProof and MudHugger.

It will see elite rider Jacob Dickson return home fresh from the UCI World Championship to compete. It will also see WideOpenMag/NukeProof rider Chris Cumming, fresh off his super runs at Megavalanche and Crankworx return home to take part - along with 152 other riders from all over.

Practise runs will begin from 8am on Saturday morning, and 8am on Sunday morning. Seeding starts at 10am on Sunday, with the races kicking off at 1:30pm.

It promises to be a fantastic couple of days for the area, with plenty for everyone to enjoy. The Red Bull Wings Team will be making an appearance during racing on Sunday, and a kids race (ages 2 - 12) will take place on Saturday following racing.

Local businesses have also paired up with Rostrevor MTB Club to sponsor the event. There will also be allocated parking on the day for both participants and spectators.
