New Rider Support

We are pleased to announce we will be helping to support Drew Armstrong this summer who is competing in Enduro Racing.

Good luck Drew.

After a great Enduro season last year I decided to focus on this discipline and have entered 3 rounds of the Enduro World Series (EWS) thanks to support from Ride For Charlie. I will travel to Round 5 in La Thuile, Italy in July and then Rounds 7 in Ainsa, Spain and the final Round in Finale Ligure, Italy in September. This will be a huge learning curve with high altitude, heat and longer stages than what I currently race in Ireland. I raced a spring XC series to loosen the legs and managed to take the win and have competed in one round of the Vitus First Tracks Enduro where I managed 3rd in Under 21 and 8th overall, and 1 round of the Vitus Gravity Enduro where I finished 2nd in Under 21 and 4th overall.

One of the positives of living on an island with a border, two separate series to compete in! I have now moved to the Under 21 category which is stacked with talent in Ireland. I am excited about the season ahead but need to get my GCSEs out of the way first and cant wait to attend the upcoming events with the help and support of Ride For Charlie!



We will be looking to support 2 teams to the Youth European Mountain bike championships in Graz August 2018.If this is something you are thinking of and have the support that you will need, please write to us before the 10 March 2018 with your request.
We want to support a first year under 16 and second year under 16 team.
We will look at the younger team for development and the older team for performance. This may go on results of races of your team members.
Please write us to via our email and state your team members, estimated cost of travel and entry fees and your reasons as to why this will be good for you and your team .

We will let the successful teams know during April.
