(L-R) Killian Bron of France, Colin Ross of Ireland and Glyn O´Brian of the United Kingdom celebrate at the Red Bull Foxhunt in Rostrevor, Northern Ireland on October 7, 2018.

SLIPPERY CONDITIONS AND A FLAT-OUT TRACK PACK AN ADRENALINE PUNCH FOR BIGGEST RED BULL FOXHUNT YET WITH 550 RIDERS AT ROSTREVOR

Colin ‘Rosco’ Ross from Lisburn has won the Red Bull Foxhunt title for the fourth time, passing the post after a three-and-a-half-mile hair-raising sprint down windswept moorland and treacherous forest trail.  This year saw the biggest race ever with 550 riders, at Killbroney Forest Park in Rostrevor, Co Down.

Tricky riding conditions and a greasy track made for one of the most memorable ‘mass start’ downhill races in Europe as a pack of red-backed riders (‘the hounds’) tore down Slieve Martin in the Mourne Mountains in a bid to outrun three foxes – current World Champion Loic Bruni, two-time Downhill World Champion Gee Atherton, and Irish Enduro Champion who is currently 6th in the World, Greg Callaghan.

French man Kilian Bron was close behind Rosco to secure second position and Newry based Glyn O’Brien scooped third.
