Fox and Friends: Jonathan Maunsell reports in from the Red Bull Fox Hunt

The Redbull Foxhunt took place last Sunday in Northern Ireland. It’s a mass start event with 550 riders starting together at the top of a mountain, all racing each other down and trying not to get caught by the Foxes! This year there were three foxes where Gee Atherton, Loic Bruni, and Greg Callaghan.

Irish Kona Racer Jonathan Maunsell was there competing and after a tough battle he finished up in seventh place just behind Gee Atherton. You have to see the overtake from his GoPro to believe it! Jonathan said “ It is a crazy feeling at the top of that hill, once the horn sounds chaos ensues! I had a slow start and had to dig deep and do A LOT of overtaking. Near the bottom of the course, I could feel the heat of Gee on my tail. I tried to defend my position, but out of the corner of my eye, I spotted Gee’s wheel flying past me in the air! I stuck with him to the line to finish in 7th position”
