The Moycullen Bike Works team competed in the Irish National Champs last weekend.  Here’s the round-up of their success.

On July 23/24, Epic DH & Flow Racing teamed up with Nokia and held the biggest event on the Downhill calendar. The Nokia Irish Downhill National Championship was held on Carrick Mountain, near the village of Glenealy in Co. Wicklow. The weekend was nothing short of exceptional for MBW Racing with three under age riders from the team being crowned National Champions of their divisions.

U 14

First down the track were the U14s, with Jacob Dickson taking a 16 second lead in the qualifying run. His performance hadn’t fallen for his race run when he took first place with a time of 2:31.837, 19 seconds ahead of Conor Lavelle in second and Jack Crowley in third. And he managed to pull that off after he punctured his front wheel while on the way down the track.

U 16

Next down the track were the U16s. Cameron Cornforth took the fastest time during qualifying with 2:26.206. Not to be beaten, for his race run he shaved off 3 seconds with a blistering time of 2:23.565. That placed him first by a lead of 2.283 over Angus Fyffe in second and 13.713 ahead of Ben Hutchinson in third.

Sports 

In the sports division Scott Coyne managed the third fastest qualifying time of 2:50.806. Even though he knocked 6 seconds off that for his race with 2:44.190 he had to settle for fourth place beaten by Shane Doolan in third, Mark Perry in second and Jason Wilson taking the win with a time of 2:43.237.

Juniors

With juniors down after that MBW Racings newest rider Gavon Carroll on his Transition TR450 had the third fastest qualifying with a time of 2:22.394. Not content with this for his race run he blew away the competition with 2:18.302, a full 5 seconds ahead of Chris Murphy in second and 12 seconds ahead of Nathan Hamilton in third making him the new Irish National Champion.

Of course none of this could have been made possible without the help of Garry Davoren providing support for the team all weekend as well as finding time to get a few runs down the track himself competing in the Masters division.
