Founded in 2011, the Vitus Gravity Enduro Ireland series is the original Enduro series in Ireland with events taking place around the country. The format is relaxed and fun; it really is the perfect combination of competition and a great day on the bikes with your mates. Carrick Mountain is without a doubt the riders favourite location! Lovely flowing trails, all natural, sweeping through such a diverse woodland... it's just paradise. And what's even more exciting is the selection of tracks that have now developed since the Enduro World Series has visited.
It's a two day event with optional practice on Saturday and the race only on Sunday. The course is approximately 25km long and has a number of mainly downhill timed "special stages". There are no transition cut off times so you can start the event in any order and ride together with a group of your pals for example. There is a Challenger category which is roughly half the distance and features 3 stages, ideal for first timers. The event typically takes 4 hours to complete and the special stages are each between 2 and 8 minutes long, totalling 15 - 25 minutes.
