So the Kona team over here in Ireland is growing with each race and we would like to welcome Cillian Thomas who rode Garry’s Process this weekend! Liked it so much all his summer job money is being put away to save for it!

The Kona tents made a big impression on all the riders and spectators that came to the trails, which look out over the capital of Ireland, Dublin city.

Conditions were less than ideal with the amount of rain that the Irish summer entails, but none-the-less all riders did well and came home in one piece, and with another victory in the bag for Michelle Muldoon, the series is surely hers now with only 2 races to go and one round yet to be dropped.

Liz Hastings on her Kona Cadabra pulled in a solid 3rd to continue the points battle for second place in the series, being knocked off 2nd spot this week by ex European downhill champ, Nathalie Jedda.

Other riders out on the day included Scott Coyne, on a Process, finished 12th. (19-29 Yr olds)

Garry Davoren on his newly refurbished Kona Satori, also finished 12th. (35-39 yr olds)

Joseph Clancy just 14 on his Kitsune finished in the top ten. (14-18 yr olds)

Neil Martin on a Satori set blistering times to come in 24th in the hotly contended category, the 30-34 year olds.

The team has a good break between now and the National Champs on the 10th and 11th August in Ballinastoe, to continue the training that is proving to be effective so far!
