Ulster Cyclo Cross


Irish Downhill


Date: Saturday 3 August 2013
Event: Ulster XC Series Round 4

Venue: Kilbroney Park, Rostrevor
Host club: Dromara Cycling Club

Kilbroney Park will be hosting the cross-country and downhill mountain bike events for the World Police and Fire Games (WPFG) over the weekend 2-4 August 2013.  
This will attract international riders and spectators from over 16 countries to the park.

Dromara Cycling Club is proud to be involved in this event and have been granted permission to run support races to the WPFG race.  This date will then be Round 4 of the Ulster XC series.
The race timetable will be as per the Ulster series with the youth races going on at the same time as the WPFG race.  Spectators are asked to cheer for both sets of riders !!

Course Description:
Kilbroney Park in the foothills of the Mourne Mountains and backing onto Carlingford Lough is a stunning location all year round.  The senior course will take some of the tough climbs of Rostrevor forest with the riders then enjoying some sweeping downhill runs using sections of the new trails that have just been installed into the forest.  Parts of the course will use sections of the forest that were last used in 2007 as part of the K-Capital series.  The start and finish will be in the caravan park which should make for great spectator viewing.  The youth course will be kept close to the event village with the Under 12s having their own separate course.

Practice day: Friday 2 August 2013 between 2 pm and 5 pm
