iDMS Round 5 Cahir | Entry & Details
Ladies and Gentlemen, children of all ages above 14, 021racing is proud to bring you the final round of the 2015 Nukeproof Irish Downhill Mountainbike Series, to be held in Scarragh woods just outside Cahir, Co. Tipperary.
This round will be Double Points!
As previously announced, this event will be run without uplifts, this is due to insurance requirements that cannot currently be met. The course will have a walkway marked out to lead you back up the easiest path and the push up will not be difficult. There will also be refreshments on route and Monster Energy will be on site to make sure you’re full of energy at all times!
021racing would like to remind all riders and spectators that the race is on Coillte land. Downhill racing relies heavily on the kind support of Coillte for race venues and it is important that the positive relationship that has been built up by 021racing is not jeopardised by leaving litter in the forest or causing tension with locals through inconsiderate behavior. You are also reminded that mini bikes and the like are not permitted under any circumstances.
Parking is at a premium so please park your vehicles sensibly and allow local traffic easy access so that the event doesn’t unnecessarily attract the attention of the Gardai or cause issues for Coillte or local residents.
Please co-operate with the race organisers and traffic coordinators before parking so larger vehicles are not parked on the road causing blockages.

From Tipperary Town
As you approach Cahir, just before the new motorway flyover (overhead) take the right hand turn. Drive up the hill and past the houses and make a left turn at the next junction. Continue on past a number of other houses and go straight through the staggered crossroads and on to the parking area..
There will be signs put up on all routes leading to the event.

Check out the FlexoMedia coverage from round 4 in Ravensdale below.
Due to insurance reasons, we will not be able to provide an uplift service in Scarragh Woods, Cahir for round # 5 of the IDMS.
The event will be a push up affair.
After speaking with the forestry commission in the UK, Coillte have now adopted the same uplift policies and because of this we are unable to meet the new insurance criteria.Typically, we are the first club that has to deal with this situation and we hope that the riders understand the position we are in.
As a result, we will be reducing the entry fee to €35 for Senior riders and €25 for underage. Ravensdale will go ahead as advertised.
We have also had a request for unauthorised building in Scarragh Woods to stop immediately. We do not wish to bring the builder(s) into bad light by naming, but you personally are putting the event at risk. It’s great to see your enthusiasm and great work, but you really need to stop and look at the big picture.
Thanks to D.Sweeney Photography for the cover image, you should go and check out his work! Amazing shots!
Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you in Tipperary.
