Cycling Ireland have announced that they intend to recognise Enduro and that a demo event for a National Championship will be held next year with the first Irish Championships to be held in 2018.
It’s recognition for the growth of the sport in the country and the popularity of Enduro events, in particular Emerald Enduro which has been held in Co. Wicklow for the past two years. The event is part of the Enduro World Series.
Cycling Ireland released a statement saying: “With the growth of the mountain bike discipline Enduro over the past number of years, Cycling Ireland intend to officially recognise Enduro and include it in their technical rules.”
“These will provide guidance for Enduro event organisers as well as allowing for the holding of an official Enduro Irish National Championship.”
“In accordance with current technical rules regarding National Championships, a demo event for an Enduro National Championship will be held in 2017 with the first Irish Enduro National Championship to be held in 2018.”
“Cycling Ireland has been working closely with current event organisers and the Off Road Commission to formulate a set of rules for Enduro events. These rules can be viewed HERE.”
“Before they are officially ratified by the Board of Cycling Ireland we invite anyone with any queries to contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Queries should be submitted by Wednesday 30th November.”
