Home To World Champion - Oisín O'Callaghan
The practice grounds await you. Local youngster Oisín O'Callaghan started biking on the same trails you are about to ride. His practice and passion led him to become a World Champion and to race mountain bikes as a profession.
Back in 2007 Oisín was only 4 and rode the purpose built single-tracks. Once bitten by the bug, there was no going back. Despite Oisín having to train abroad for the more serious terrain, he still does most of his winter training in Ballyhoura - getting big distance and staying in shape both physically and technically.
There is a huge re-build of the trails locally in 2022 so we are confident the changes will make things easier and more fun. It is for sure going to nurture the next champion and also fill the appetite of the most recent champion who is still at the beginning of his career.
Oisín always loves coming home and getting out with the locals and enjoy what's on offer. If it's good enough for our World Champion, it's good enough for us!
