  1. Default XC NPS 2011 Rnd. 1 preview

    Cuchulainn CC is proud to host NPS round one for 2011 on April the 3rd in the historic and scenic grounds of Bellurgan Park, Co. Louth (click for map).
    This event is also Round 2 of the Leinster League. Cuchulainn are all looking forward to seeing racers riding in the ability based groups and head to head racing and their members have grafted all winter to forge a course that will test the best yet is rideable by all.

    Schedule:
    The race lap count and start times are is per the agreed/standardised criteria for 2011 & future XC events as follows:
    Standardised lap count
    Standardised start times
    Racers with good technical skills will be rewarded due to the inclusion of two technical sections diverting from the main course.The first one is a drop and the second is a gap jump both doable on an XC bike. They are done completely at the personal risk of the rider, but there is an alternate/easy line available for both features so riders can decide which their preferred option is according to their skill level.
    The course will be open for practice from 10am to 1pm on Saturday the 2nd and because of the technical sections it is highly advised.
    Special attention has been given this year to courses that are specific for the younger riders. New for 2011 there are separate categories for girls in all age groups.
    Facilities
    • Car parking is in a flat field with toilet facilities.
    • The start line is adjacent to the car park.
    • There are some great spectator spots that are accessible for young families.
    • There will be a bouncy castle provided free of charge

    thats the funny thing..there must be a heap of MTBers now who have had their card taken. Maybe CRC should sponsor the NPS and make it free entry.
    This online payment only is a completely stupid idea. Especially in the current climate.

    Actually I'm looking forward to this one too! Like Smithers says I can't be any worse than last week! It will be a great course as long as it stays reasonably dry. It's only an hour from the M50 too.

    I hope they've picked up all the shale from the course that caused all the broken mechs last year!!!
    Leave the gun, take the cannoli..
