Irelands First Multi Stage Adventure Mountain Bike Race a 400+ km, multi day, cross country, mountain bike event taking place in the South West of Ireland – June 2010.

We love all things MTB but we admit that some bits are closer to our hearts in CelticXtreme… Riding all sorts of terrain in a day – fire road, country lanes, sheep trails, rocky technical double track, mountain side, farm roads, singletrack… Never seeing the same trail twice on a ride… Big epic days out – when you get home cursing the day you first saw a bike – but knowing you will do it all again tomorrow!
For the CelticXtreme team & event director Brian Galvin this race route combines over 20 years of MTB exploring in the Southwest of Ireland with many great racing experiences in events such as the Ballyhoura Beast, Transalp, Grand Raid, Transrockies & time spent helping organise a variety of triathlon, adventure & MTB events over the years.
Our goal in CelticXtreme has been to create a long distance multistage mtb race in Ireland which will encompass a wide range of testing offroad terrain. This race is organised by mountain bikers for mountain bikers: The trails & terrain chosen require a proficient level of technical riding skills & a high level of endurance based fitness. Riders will need basic navigational skill & the ability to carry out their own running repairs while completing each stage in a reasonably allotted time.
Racing will take place over a 6 day period, with each marathon stage inflicting the ultimate in mountain biking pain & pleasure. Race across a landscape steeped in mythology, through ancient forests, past medieval castles, forts & monasteries – the breathtaking scenery of the West of Ireland will unfold around you as you lose yourself in the sweet singletrack & blast down rocky downhills.
