Great event lads , done it last year and really enjoyed it . I would recommend doing it solo as there is a lot of hanging around in a team (talking to some lads in teams post event last year and said they should have went solo)
Some of fire road sections are two way traffic so watch this as I was involved in a head on collision on 3rd lap with a biker on the wrong side of road. Was sore for a few laps but recovered to finish race .
Not going to make it this year unfortunate .
Great introduction into 12 or 24 hrs endurance events (if ur into that level of pain )

That was though start to the race season! first lap was a shock to the system, recovered a bit for the 2nd lap and enjoyed it more, top of the course was challenging with a few inches of snow under foot and driving snow + wind trying to blow you off the bike.
Great result Patrick 18th out of 89!(great to see ur family out in support in that weather!) 
Myself  Stuart and  ED had a great dice on last lap
Never enjoyed a hot coffee and shower as much as I did after that!!
Rool on next sat (Gale force Dublin endurance race). Hope weather is a bit better

Race went really well today. I had no endurance training done and really didn't know how I would preform after a few hrs  so  was delighted to finish 7th after completing 10 laps  :)
Thought race was over after 3 laps as I crashed head on to a rider who crossed over the fire road in front of me(most of fire roads were 2 way trafic ) he was taking his shades off and lost control !took a while to recover but over an 8 hrs race  it didn't make much difference .
As for Patrick ! What a performance, Hammering out a few 35 min laps to get things going then completed 12 of them to finish 2nd only minutes behind Barry Kellet  !!! RESPECT
They know all about IMBRC  in Castlewellan now!

Ye What a fantastic event yesterday. Great trails great weather and very encouraging marshals. Well done MAD.
Was a bit worried about the long climb for first half of lap but with the few breaks in it gave me the recovery time to keep it going . The decent was magic ! flying down narrow single track at top speed with marshals blowing warning whistles Deadly!! Great lap
What a result Patrick 4Th in S2 with Anto not far behind . I managed 10th  :) best result of year by far.
IMBRC going from strength to strength.
All in all a great day in the hills.

What a race yesterday. Djouce never fails to deliver! Definitely  the best xc course in the country!
Only issue I had with yesterdays event was 5 laps for S2! Ouch
Got off well at start and managed to hold my position around 15 th till the 5th lap when rear derailer became part of my back wheel!
Spent 3 or 4 min bending it back into position and managed to finish race in 21st  :)
Plenty of IMBRC jerseys around. Well done to all who raced.
Rool on Lady Dixon

Nice one Patrick :)
Tough race on sun. The pace off the line was frantic. Managed to keep it together for first 3 laps but last lap was a killer!
Great course and well organised race!
