2013 Yakima Sunshine MTB Series

7th of July saw the 4th round of the 2013 Yakima Sunshines MTB Series come to Adare. It started off as a cold morning with people starting to turn up from about 6am onwards while the campers were still making breakfast or still getting out of bed from the night before around the camp fire.

The crowd grew very fast once the sun was up and it wasn’t long before there a carpark full of car with bike racks. The early risers went out and had a quick ride before the day got under way.

After weeks of rain the gods shown down on Adare and the weather was spectacular to say the least.. By mid morning people were running around in just shorts and a shirt (almost spring weather)..

As the day went on the (angelic?) voices commentated throughout the day to keep punters up to date on what was going on throughout the race..

From the youngest of the field to the elites everyone seemed to have a great time and the atmosphere was amazing. A massive credit goes to “The Riders Club” for all their support and everyone that chipped in to help out especially the Adare Homestead that put on an amazing bonfire on the Saturday night were many stories were shared..
