Show Off Your Trail - WINNERS

Posted on June 11, 2019 @ 5:26 PM in Mountainbiking

Over the last few weeks, we've asked MountainBikeNI followers to send us their pictures from the official mountain bike trails. You've responded in your hundreds and some of the photographs we've seen have been incredible. Others have been terrifying. And then there are a few odd ones out there - but we love them all.

Our favourite pictures will win £400 and £100 respectively in online voucher for Chain Reaction Cycles. But first - some of our highly commended pictures!

Ryan Butler's triumphant picture over a turbulent Kodak Corner is all kinds of cool.

One of a few from the seriously impressive photo reel of Warren McConnaughie at Rostrevor.

Colin Smith at Kodak Corner with a mini MTBer is as heart warming as it is impressive. How did he get up there?!

Old faithful style picture from Andy Gilmore, but we love it.

Somehow the view is still amazing, even though it's completely obscured. Cheers Jason Hill for sending this one in!

Another from Warren and this is a pretty idylic shot at Davagh Forest.

We love this view from Boundary Rock. Evan McIlmoyle's shot really brings home how wonderfully remote you are.

Sunset over Run Ragley Run in this shot from Bradley Grahame. How could you not want to get on the bike seeing this?

Brian Lenehan's picture feels like it's literally moving with him here. 

Trails? What trails? Thomas Marks reminds us what mountain bikinig at Davagh Forest can be like in the other part of the year. 

We're at Castlewellan for this great shot from Carlos Russell.

Dark, moody and atmosphere. Quality show of the Castlewellan Lake from Mickey Clarke.

 

But the winners are...

 

In 2nd place we have a tie!

Warren McConnaughie's black and white shot at On The Pulse at Rostrevor MTB Trails is pretty special. The camaraderie, variety in the trails and skill of local riders all hits you straight off.

 

Jonny Clyde has won a special additional prize for his hilarious breakdown on a trip to Rostrevor MTB Trails. Check it out below.

 

And our 1st place winner is...

The vote from our team was unanimous. This one was picked out by every one of us as being in their favourites and we can see why. The atmosphere, the air, the rugged and incredibly familiar look of our local trails. Congratulations Tommy Magnenat - you've won the £400 voucher!

 

Thanks to everyone for sending in your pictures! Stay tuned to MountainBikeNI's FacebookTwitter and Instagram pages as we've something exciting dropping in the next few days...

Hardest thing about Mountain Biking? Definitely the trees.
