“Red Bull Fox Hunt”
Against over 400 other riders including pro’s and the rapid Rostrevor locals, it was Nukeproof and Wideopen ace Kelan Grant who took overall victory at Red Bull Fox Hunt to continued his awesome year. With 3 “fox’s” hunting down the pack this year including Loic Bruni- the current UCI Downhill World Champion and Gee Atherton it was a awesome ride by Kelan to take the win on his Nukeproof Mega 290.
2nd fastest in qualifying on Saturday, just behind World Cup DH pinner and local legend Jacob Dickson, this gave Kelan a crucial front row start. From here he worked his way out front and took the victory. (Unfortunately his helmet camera ran out of battery 25 seconds in!)
Kelan has had an amazing end to the season becoming Irish Enduro National Champion, winning the Ard Rock Enduro and winning several other high profile events. As well as this he’s just finished his final year at university.
Awesome year for Kelan- Well done from all of us at Nukeproof
Congratulations to Nukeproof boss Michael Cowan too who finished an awesome 8th position (just ahead of Gee Atherton!)
