Ulster XC – Round 6 – Drumcairne Forest

Date: Sunday 4 September 2016
Event: Ulster XC Series Round 6
Venue: Drumcairne Forest, Stewardstown, County Tyrone
Host club: Island Wheelers

This is the final round of the 2016 Ulster XC series.

Course Description:

All races will be starting from near the car park.  Riders will go up the grass and turn left onto a fire road for 50 m.  They will then turn right into the trails which are fast and rooty in places, continue into the pine section and through the potato drills.  After the potato drills the riders will go through another tight, rooty section until they come onto a fire road for plenty of overtaking opportunity.  There will be a right turn into the Garden, then up a short, sharp climb (car park climb). After the climb there is a fast section of trail before going over God’s Ramp ( B line available), another short climb then flat out to the finish line.

Note: The youth courses will be using part of the main course so those sections will not be available for practicing on while the youth races are in progress.
