I have been mountain biking since 2006 and a member of MAD since 2007 and last year I got bitten by the cyclo cross bug. I have competed in a number of MTB stage races as well a 12 hour races with the aim to race 24 hour solo next year and have a good season racing cyclo cross. I am currently involved in setting up a web site http://www.irishcx.com to help promote cyclo cross to people in Ireland and provide a central repository of information. I am aiming to work with the commission try and help promote Irish cyclo cross as well as mountain biking in general.
Ollie has been known to cycle bikes with no gears, and no suspension, and 29″ wheels, I believe he currently owns a bike that incorporates ALL THREE of these MTB mortal-sins! Still, his enthusiasm for all things 2-wheeled is undeniable, and I reckon he’ll be a great asset to the commission and the world of cyclocross.
Please support Ollie in his new role on the commission as he gets to grips with managing the cyclocross aspect of the sport.
