I heard a rumour that a certain XXL club member may be making an appearance at cross this year  :P

Oh yes, associated XXL cx bike should be landing next week. Nor sure I should be looking forward to this, I've been told to expect a world of pain  ???

Yep totally different course in the wet, probably no point practicing at all yesterday as it was a shlompfest today. Really enjoyable day, myself rob Dave and Scott went around together, was great craic slipping/sliding around the stages. Unfortunately I punctured at the top of stage 5 so had to run down the rest of it but that's the way it goes. Got home and heard that Matt took a nasty fall up on stage 5, is currently in St Vincent's with a broken vertebrae. Luckily Gary took good care of him and got him safely into an ambulance. Very scary stuff I have to say. Will post as soon as I hear anything else

Looks like there'll be a few of us heading down to ballyhoura for the Enduro on August 15/16. If we are gonna stay over we probably should be booking accommodation soon. I'll reserve the same hotel as the lads stayed in last year, can anyone that wants to stay please post here or let me know on Tuesday and I'll book it.

Really enjoyed that today, fantastic course that had a bit of everything. Started at the back of the bunch and struggled to get past many. Had a great race with Paul Barry and we were dicing for 2 laps which was great craic (except for the climbs). The three lads ado jimmy and Hans were very unlucky, glad to hear jimmy is ok. Congrats to Adam and Paul for some great performances.

Great atmosphere as usual up there, MAD really did a great job

The names jiimmmy big Iano Scott and Tayto will be mentioned in the folklore of IMBRC for generations to come,the men that took on the world at the EWS and beat Fabian Bariel (on stage 4).
We will b telling the kids how they spent 3 long days in the saddle,battling fire (roads) jeering madmen and killer descents.. How jimmy nearly died from man flu but he never gave up and by race day his yellow wheels were glowing red hot he was going so hard and fast,or how big Ian,who was 8ft tall,fell off his bike again and again but got back up every time and it was the rocks and trees that came out second best.or how Masters Barkley raced every stage as hard and as fast as he could even though he was nursing a 4yr old broken shoulder and finished in the top twenty in the universe,or how the legendary red bearded pirate captain Tayto guided his giant rig through The 7 circles of hells inferno only to rise up and continue his odyssey through Scotland and France..
The mighty EWS IMBRC legends!!  >:(

I may have had a few glasses of vino to celebrate their achievements !!!   :)

Hahaha Aido, you defo should start writing a blog for the club  8)

Amazing weekend, never seen or experienced anything like it. Delighted to finish it as I was a bit concerned Id bitten off more than I could chew when I entered it. 7 times up that hill under a deadline was tough going, got quite tired at stage 6 and 7 and made a few mistakes as a result. Just concentrated on making my start times and avoiding any unnecessary added penalties. Great buzz around the place on practice but race day was absolutely electric. Didn't get to see much of Scott, jimmy or Paul as I started later than them but in fairness I wasn't doing much talking going up those climbs.

Congrats to Scott for getting a top 20 and of course Killian who is gonna be a superstar.

Thanks for all the support/heckling, was great to hear familiar voices heading down the trails.
