MountainBikeNI's Top Videos of 2017

Posted on December 18, 2017 @ 1:31 PM in Mountainbiking

If a picture tells a thousand words, we're pretty sure a video must tell... a lot more words?


Below you'll find a list of our favourite mountain bike videos from 2017. Maybe you missed it when it was first posted it. Maybe you just want to watch it for the twentieth time. Either way, we hope you enjoy and we'll see you back again in 2018!


1. Kelan Grant and Killian Callaghan RideNorth

We don't like to brag, but we're pretty sure our two models for this video couldn't have been better picked. Kelan, who rides for Team WideOpen Mag, just happened to beat some of the best in the world by winning the Red Bull Foxhunt in October, and Killian picked up the title of U.21 Men's Enduro World Champion earlier this year also. Not bad! Watch the lads tear around Castlewellan, Davagh Forest and Rostrevor MTB Trails.

 

2. Rob Warner Interviews Loic Bruni for MountainBikeNI

Speaking of the Red Bull Foxhunt, we got chatting to two of the biggest names in the business when it was taking place down at Rostrevor MTB Trails. Current DH World Champion Loïc Bruni and all round MTB legend Rob Warner joined us, with Rob kindly agreeing to interview Loïc. There's some name calling and accusations of cheating, but all in good fun of course.

 

3. Greg Callaghan Rides Davagh Forest

Greg Callaghan has arguably done more for the sport of mountain biking on the island of Ireland in the past few years than anybody. His performance at this year's Enduro World Series was phenomenal. Despite holding the overall lead on a number of occasions, he was pipped in the final rounds and finished an extremely respectable third.

We were delighted then that when he got back, he'd head to try the trails on Davagh Forest for some R&R!

 

4. Colin Ross Talks to MountainBikeNI at the Red Bull Foxhunt

As if more big names were needed in this list, we've also got a clip of Colin chatting to us just after his run at the Red Bull Foxhunt. An incredible biker and currently riding with our friends at Chain Reaction Cycles, Colin is possibly the most beloved mountain biker in Northern Ireland. His description of his first time riding as a Fox is well worth a watch.

 

5. Welcome to Davagh Forest

We're back to Davagh Forest again for a pretty epic montage video if we do say so ourselves. Totalling only around 40 seconds, this video highlights the incredible scenery and riding on offer in Davagh Forest, in the heart of the Sperrins. If you haven't been, this will get you in the mood.

 

You can find plenty more great content like this on the MountainBikeNI YouTube page.

We'd also love to see some of your clips from the trails in Northern Ireland! Drop an email to info@mountainbikeni.com and show us what you can do.

Hardest thing about Mountain Biking? Definitely the trees.
