The Emerald Enduro – 2017 Enduro World Series Round 4 – On  May 28 -Ireland will host the fourth round of the Enduro World Series.

The world’s top riders will line out in the Wicklow mountains for a tough day of mountain bike racing over 50km of technical terrain in a rally style format with testing special stages.

This is the third year that the global series has visited Ireland and is testament to the large crowds of enthusiastic supporters who line the stages roaring on the riders.

2016 marked a turning point for Irish Enduro racing with 4 of the 5 categories won by Irish riders, an unheralded achievement, crowned by hometown hero Greg Callaghan who repeated his 2015 win in front of an ecstatic crowd…

Noah Horak (sporting the longer beard with his brother Craig) is a 28-year old electrical engineer from Minnesota who quit his job to go on a round the world trip (read his excellent blog here).

He arrived in Ireland yesterday…

He writes in Horizons Unlimited travel forum:

I’ve been in Ireland for less then 8 hours. This was supposed to be the 2nd leg of my RTW. My 2010 KTM 690 was taken from the corner of Talbot Place and Talbot street in Dublin in broad daylight. I was in a near by hostel resting after an overnight flight. I put a padlock through the front break but they cut the lock with a bolt cutter. Obviously it wasn’t enough. There was no luggage on it at the time.
The bike is white with a Rally Raid fairing. Minnesota licence plate 12071MH.

Anyone?
