Carrick, Co. Wicklow | 27th + 28th of SeptemberENTER NOW

Carrick has been host to some great racing from a variety of host clubs. It is held high as one of the best courses in the country and should prove a fantastic venue to close out the series.

Timing will be Tag Heuer live timing, provided by Voilla Timing.

Medical cover in the form of ambulance on both days and an advanced roaming paramedic.

Catering will be available both days! Ulla & Kurt, aka “The Germans”, will be on site filling us with some of the best food you will find at any race along with fresh coffee, teas, soup.

On-the-day entries will be accepted but there will be a €10 surcharge so make sure you get entered before hand.

You must have your number board from the iDMS rounds, if you have competed already this year. Failure will result in needing a replacement board at a cost of €10.
New entries get a number board when signing on. The BLUE national championship number boards will not be accepted.
Your number MUST be legible, if your board’s numbers are not legible please speak to a member of the race organisers team.

Practicing the course prior to the event will lead to your disqualification if you are caught! There will be no bending of this rule. The venue at Carrick depends heavily on the kindness of the local residents, we must respect their privacy in the lead up to the event.

Online entry will close, Wednesday, the 24th of Sept at midnight.

Two of the local Glenealy lads – Rory O’Kelly and Roy Kenny – put this together for us. They have assured us they did not peek once and weren’t practicing the course.

iDMS Round THREE | Postponed

POSTPONED

It has now come time for me to inform you all of some sad news, I’m afraid.

Farymount Farm MTB have had to postpone their round of the iDMS in May as they will not have their grounds ready on time, they fear. It is likely that they will take up the running of Round FIVE in September, but this is yet to be finalised. Stay tuned!

Talks have been had with Coillte already in resolving a suitable venue for the event to go ahead and news of that will follow as soon as I learn it. It will however, then be neccessary to find a suitable club to run the event. It’s not hard to do but time is short!

I need to know what clubs are willing to and able to run races. If you are in a position to offer your clubs services to run races, or even if you want to discuss what those requirements are, now is the time to make contact. eMail me HERE

YOUR SPORT NEEDS YOU!

In the mean time, don’t forget to get your entry in for Round TWO in Mallow. Entries will remain open for another week, but will cut off at midnight on Thursday the 17th April.
