Club Outing – Enduro Mountain Biking

Enduro is a type of mountain bike racing where riders are timed in stages that are primarily downhill. Robbie describes it as a bit like the Liffey Descent without the water and canoes but you have a bike instead! Highly recommended for sports photographers.

See http://www.gravityenduro.ie/

The event takes place in Ticknock starting at 9:30

You usually have to do a fair bit of uphill walking to get good access points. It lasts for hours with a steady stream of competitors. Parking at Enduro events can be a challenge in itself, especially if not there early, and so, even more walking may be necessary… you need to have a reasonable level of fitness.

You will need a telephoto lens preferably with a minimum of 70-200mm and a general purpose lens and stout shoes or boots may help and, of course, rain gear (this is Ireland).
