Race Information

After the success of the XC Championships in 2008 and K-Capital Challenge Race Series final stage in 2009, Kippure Estate has entered into talks with Coillte, Wicklow County Tourism and Wicklow Rural Partnership to develop permanent mountain bike trails in the Athdown woods opposite the entrance to the estate. Coillte are very open to the idea and in conjunction with all parties a feasibility study is to be commissioned to look into the routes available, costing, etc.

The course for the first round is approx. 3km loop within the grounds of Kippure Estate, loads of singletrack and one nice fireroad climb and will include some interesting features along the way. The climbs aren't too hard, everything is rideable for beginners.

The relatively short loop will make it great for the spectators.

There is ample parking, acommadation & coffee shop on the grounds of the estate.

Hi,

was chatting to one of your members in Ballyhoura a few weeks ago and he mentioned the Development Race series.  Just wondering when is the next one taking place?   Sha.
