INISHOWEN mountain bikers Callum Morris and Aaron Morris were on song during the weekend at the Irish National Enduro Championships at Djoice Mountain, Co Wicklow.
Held over three stages, which the riders could do as many times as they wish in four hours with their best stage time counting, the young racers didn’t have a trouble-free day.
In the U14 category, Portal Racing’s Aaron Morris (13) had a crash on stage 1 and his chain came off at the end of stage 3.
After a good re-run through 1&3, he a massive crash on stage 2 seen him taken off the hill by medics, but thankfully given the all clear with just some cuts and bruising.
Once fully recovered he was delighted to finish in second place in his first irish championship race.
Vitus First Tracks rider Callum Morris was thrown a gauntlet by team Boss Glyn O’Brien on the Saturday when he won the M40 Category and not to be out done Morris (14) hit the stages at full speed.
A minor crash on stage 2 was rectified by a clean second run through the stage. On his second run on stage 3, he ripped his rear tyre and had to ride 4km on the rim back to the race village in order to get in before his 4-hour time limit expired. Callum had a massive effort to avoid time penalties, taking first in the category and earning a Cycling Ireland gold medal and a national jersey.Tags:
