The cross country MTB season started for UCD Cycling in Ballyhoura, Co. Limerick last weekend. Michael Cummins represented UCD Cycling in the Biking.ie’s Biking Blitz – Round 2. “I took a last minute decision to start my 2016 race season two months earlier than planned”, said Cummins. “I hadn’t been on a mountain bike in six weeks so I decided to enter the short race to test my legs”, added Cummins. Although he narrowly missed out on a podium position finishing 4th out of the 75 man field he was happy with the result, “It gives me good motivation going into the next round of the Blitz in Galway in March!”
Cummins confirmed that he will be competing in the world famous Roc DAzur event in France this coming October, more to follow….
