Well done Claire, I hear that climb is a monster!

Haven't been down to the new trails yet and was working yesterday so gave it a miss.

rostrevor is good but the hill at the start is awful, there is an uplift service which i would use if going again.  the top guys were flying, the guy that won it got a puncture and still won!

Well I only do a bit of MTBing, I fancied a bit of this as it ticks boxes for me, I've been round rostrevor 2 1/2 times just I prefer castlewellen as its closer.  Though the friar tucks in warrenpoint would sway me to go back lol!

Ill just look the print out here an see if j can copy a link of all finishing times.......

Cheers Claire. Yep castlewellans great too.slightly diff character.plus its 10mins drive from us here in newcastle. If you havent tried the on site cafe in castlewellan park...mm best avoided..more atmosphere on the moon,if u ask me ;D. Urban coffee aint bad almost opp cwellan chapel. Give us a shout if you want company at cwellan trails nxt time :)
