2010 Irish National Champs
The race was held at the rostrevor venue which has to be one of the best tracks and venue set ups! Hosted by CRC who put on a great event which has to be the best Nationals to date!
The track was the same as last year with some changes like a great jump in to the finish. the track had everthing in it steep, tech, fast and worthy of a national Championships. The one thing that stood out was how dry the track was! It was so dusty and fast that made it quite slippery but great fun.
All the riders where enjoying the track and pleased with there practice before seeding, Jonny Charters had a flyer which put him in to 2nd in the u16, Rosco also went well ending fastest in the elites. Benji had a steady run in the seniors but knew he could do better!
Race day came and Rosco didnt look too happy with not much sleep due to loud CRC ones from the shop! But had to deal with it and focus on the race. Jonny was first of the team down the mountain who didnt have a great run due to pressure on himself knowing how fast he could go and ended up in forth. Benji had a steady run which he was pleased with and ended up 21st in the seniors. Rosco also crumbled under pressure making mistakes and blowing out corners and had to settle for 3rd but thats racing!!
