    Elivation: at least twice the height of Everest (it certainly feels that way)
    Calories: 12 snickers, double portion of chicken wings and that cat looks pretty tasty.

    Well done on finishing it.

    Hats off to all ye category winners (jerseys look class) & all who got thru the Thrilla

    This year’s course was degly. Even more open mountain trails.

    After last year’s cramp-fest, I managed my effort much better this year and had enough left in the legs on the last climb to move up a few places.

    Got lucky landing my my feet after a massive spill down the last rocky descent trying to keep up with Dave Meredith on his awesome new Anthem.

    Curry afterwards was heaven followed by a feast of pints in Carlingford & back on the ferry across the loch to the family campsite in Norn Irn. I’ll be doin that part again next year!

    Thanks Dave. I'm a bit mystified to be honest as I entered classic vets so not sure what the story is. Guess I'll wait and see when the results come out. As for the 'race' it was one of the hardest things I've done on a bike, way too long for me ! I was almost on my hands and knees going up the last climb. Huge respect to everyone who finished (especially for those who finished sub 4 hours) and massive congrats to the legends who came home with the prizes - Chris, Ben , JD, Terry, Paul, savages all, what a huge haul for the club. Not sure I will be back next year but you I guess you never know !

    Thanks lads, epic results ! Well done all who finished.It certainly was a tough one!
    As we rode through the village, I looked back and it was some sight. The whole street was full of mtb'ers, it looked class(Johnny mcCabe pointed this out).
    Really enjoyed the race , rode a steady pace and felt better this way, with no cramping getting over the turnstiles!
    Brilliant results from the club and good to see and chat to all.

    Great show from Epic and really great to see so many jerseys. Great start with perfect weather, turned quickly. I bailed before the last feed station as i hadn't trained enough to meet my timeline to get the train to Wexford. This is a great event, everyone should give it a go. Well done to all, really great results and super achievements, delighted to see so many club members at a truly great event, well done all.

    It wouldn’t be Epic without the Mulveys
