Multiple Irish champion Robin Seymour took a thirteenth consecutive national mountain title in Kilruddery estate last Sunday, further extending what is a remarkable winning streak. The Endura Voodoo Singletrack/WORC rider beat closest competitor Niall Davis (IMBRC) by two and a half minutes, with James McCluskey taking bronze in the cross-country race.
Seymour has also won fourteen cross country titles and has undoubtedly one of the best championship records in Irish sport.
In the womens race, Tarja Owens added another gold to her own glittering collection, the WORC rider surviving a fall to finish 45 seconds ahead of second-placed Beth McCluskey. Owens has now taken the last 12 womens championships.
