East Coast Adventure – Supporting Irish Downhill Mountain Biking
SUPPORTED RIDERS PROGRAMME
Our programme offers training and support, encourages racing participation at national level with support & information to those interested in racing at International level.
We have been able to act as a launch pad for previous members to progress to International racing and are delighted to be part of the process encouraging the continued development of downhill mountain bike racing in Ireland.
We travel the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland in our hunt for racing experience.
Our supported riders programme provides access to personal training with Eamonn Rooney, Gym Tech Newry. With over 30 years experience working in the fitness industry and his time competing at international level, Eamonn has worked and trained with some of the World’s leading Fitness Professionals, also many European, World and Olympic Champions and has been the National Strength & Conditioning Coach for the Northern Ireland Judo Team since 2001.
Seatruck Ferries and Mudhugger have been sponsoring us since the beginning back in 2014 and we were delighted when Tesco Mobile joined us a sponsor in 2017. Our sponsors have given us the ability to support riders with a timing system for time trials in preparation for racing events, the purchase of racing kit, access to affordable bikes, bike products and travel across the Irish Sea.
