This really was one of those races where every stage left you wanting more but also completely bust!
Another weekend of super tight racing against Meave Baxter who got me again! This time by 2 seconds over 24 minutes of racing.
We fought hard on each stage, and even though I bagged three stage wins, Meave's awesome bike handling skills on the toughest track of them all, Stage 2, gained her a 10 second advantage on me, enought to close the gap and take the win.
The five stages were in prime condition. Built by mountain bikers, these tracks were fast, technical and pushed you to your limits. I finished every stage with nothing left in the tank with both leg burn and arm pump, it was one of those races where winter interval training really pays off! Something I realised I hadnt done enough of!!
Im always grateful to be up on the podium, and this time with these two awesome riders, Meave Baxter and Ruth Doorley.
Massive thanks to @biking.ie for by far the most fun stages to date this year! Well done Niall and crew👌
It was so nice to chill out for the rest of the evening after a full days practice and enjoy the stunning 360 degree mountainous scenery. I am looking forward to a visit to Mount Leinster again in July.
You know the race season has really kicked in when its
