The time is now! Racing is back on the horizon and we couldn't be more stoked! The Vitus First Tracks team is poised and the Vitus First Tracks Enduro Cup is back with a bang.
The team are bringing it to the world of mountain biking with the announcement of their 2021 Race Division lineup and Enduro Cup season. If we have learned anything over the past year, it’s that nothing is for sure and the time is now!! To any mountain biker that simply means you never know what’s around the next corner, so grab life by the bars and make the most of now.
The best part of biking is getting to do what you love with your friends. The Vitus First Tracks Race Division is just that, a gravity-focused team that get their kicks going big and fast! It’s not all about the gnarl though; these dudes could be found drifting around turns at the odd xc or gravel race and generally looking for adventure on two wheels. If they don’t make the podium you can be guaranteed they will win the best craic (fun) award! Gary Donaldson & Jack Devlin will be sending it in the senior category. Style guru Callum Morris will be racking up some steeze points in juniors. Cato O’Brien will be doing it for the ladies and bringing plenty of stoke to the team. Glyn O’Brien will have the kettle on the boil in vets and convincing himself he’s still 20. Watch these guys shred their Vitus bikes at selected EWS rounds, Irish & British Downhill rounds, Irish Enduro races, and of course - down the local!
In its 7th season, the Vitus First Tracks Enduro Cup has been delivering the sickest race weekends in Ireland and plan to continue this for 2021. With four rounds in the calendar and a sense of uncertainty still looming we are taking this one round at a time and making the most of now! Restrictions are still a challenge and we want to keep racing safe for everyone but at the same time stick to our core value of having a good time on bikes with our mates. We have decided not to run a series but instead have 4 individual events. This means riders don’t need to worry about scoring points, just go fast and enjoy each race for what it is. Between restrictions and venues, we feel a different format will work better for each race so we can maximise value and fun for everyone, surprise! Entries and venue details will not be released until 3 weeks before each race.
We are expecting entries to sell out quickly so keep a close eye HERE. Grab your bikes your mates and happy racing!
