Last round of the Biking Blitz this weekend

March 14th, 2013 · No Comments

Round four of the Biking Blitz takes place on St. Patricks Day on Ticknock mountain in Dublin.

Comprising of the full Coillte trail loop, this Blitz sees a frantic start up the tarmac fireroad before heading into the trails.  With four laps for the Super Pros and two for the Baggy shorts there is still plenty of time for those who take time to warm up.  The two fireroad climbs  are not technical and allow for plenty of passing opportunities but be wary of the traffic on the descents as you can loose a lot of time here!  Don’t forget the Student champs too.
