On Sunday (May 28th), the Coillte Emerald Enduro took to Carrick Mountain, Wicklow, for the 4th round of the Enduro World Series. The global mountain bike race saw over 350 of the world’s most elite riders hit the hills for 1550m of climbing, 50km of pedalling and over 6 hours of biking across tough and technical trails.
After a testing day, Irish rider Greg Callaghan finished in 10th place but still maintained his #1 position in the global rankings, making him one of the fastest riders in the world. In the Mens U21 category, Dublin native and cousin to Greg, Killian Callaghan took a 4th place finish, ranking him #1 globally. Cork girl, Leah Maunsell also saw success in Wicklow, taking 2nd place in the U21 Women’s race.
Returning for the 3rd year to Carrick Mountain, the Emerald Enduro has already become an EWS classic. As famous for its fans as its trails, the Irish round has become known for its electric atmosphere and today was no different as thousands of spectators lined the tracks for Sunday’s race.
2017 is the fifth year of the Enduro World Series with eight rounds taking the riders to New Zealand, Tasmania, Madeira, Ireland, France, USA, Canada and the final round in Italy.
