Nukeproof are proud to support the highlight of the Irish Downhill Mountain bike calendar “The National Championships“. The Stunning venue of Rostrevor has hosted this event several times over the years and never disappoints. Expect a high speed technical track with natural features starting high on the slopes of Slievebane, brought to you by the team at First Tracks MTB.
The Event on the 18th and 19th July 2015 is going to be crazy this year so bring your friends and family for support and get your heckle on!!! If you have raced here before you know how loose the fans get at Hecklers rock, this year we will have a DJ in attendance to ensure this!!!
The National Championships are open to riders with a UCI IRL code on their license. Entrants must also be current Cycling Ireland members (or a member of another UCI affiliated organisation) and hold an appropriate license for the discipline in which they are competing (for example the minimum license to take part in the National Downhill MTB Championships would be a limited competition off-road license). Only categories recognized by Cycling Ireland will be entitled to National Championship titles/ medals and jerseys that meet the minimum number of entrants.
Day licences are available on the day at a cost of £18 or 20 Euro for the open race. You will still be racing against other riders that hold licences but there will be separate podiums for the open race and National Championships.

The price for the National Championships is different from the IDMS. The price has remained the same as last year and has been set to allow for the extra costs due to the commercial uplift at Rostrevor.
