    How long is a lap in time
    How much singletrack compared to Bellurgan

    We recon 25 minutes for S1 , 30 for S2 , 35 for S3 ( its about 6.5 km but quite tecnical )
    Sorry wasnt at Bellurgan , but there is only 300-400 metres of fire road the rest is tecnical double track climbing and decending with about 1km of single track , no problem passing
    Tea , coffee etc after .
    Have the use of a farm yard and hopefully a field for parking near start/finish area ( no multi-storey out there yet )
    Half hour from my house in Rochestown .
    Its ALL stone and rock so rain should have little effect .

    The main climb will test everybody and the decents will also be testing :).

    try a bit harder than that ..any drops of death or berms of doom ? is that a photo of hefner in there ?
    you have only a week to go..its one of the furthest from Dublin, like it or lump it people will consider dropping it from their NPS quest..especially as not all rounds count ( big mistake)..

    One downhill section goes down for about 2km :cool:, a bit like the tecnical down in the marathon champs ( theres 2km of tecnical climbing to get to it though) yes that is the legend that is the hefner . This track is not for the faint hearted , dont want to put weak , pussy like xc heads off but this is a REAL man/womans track , built by the LORD himself none of this man made pallet gap jump , bermed cornered fannying about stuff , to miss this would show everyone you sad excuse for a mountain biker :o.

    For the sake of helping out the club I've gone through google maps street view and got this for you:

    Ok, from what I can see take junction/exit 14 off the M8, and follow the signs for Fermoy, Once you're on the R369 follow these:


    1. Head southwest on R639 2.5 km

    (At the statue)

    2. Turn right at St James Pl/N72 7.8 km

    (3 no pic needed)
    3. Slight left at Glanworth Rd 500 m


    (Should be able to recognize it from the white house

    4. Take the 1st left


    (Straight ahead through the round about)

    This is the entrance:


    Link to google Maps here: http://goo.gl/maps/ldrh with a route from exit 14

    Edit: Lat Long 52.09991, -8.42700
    For GPS/Sat Nav devices. If you try this on google maps it points to the wrong place.

    And a Loc8 code for anyone using a sat nav that can get these: WBZ-13-SF9

    And a link showing Parking and entrance on Loc8 http://www.myloc8ion.com/index.php/m...1&p=WBZ-13-SF9
