XC National Champs 2016
This weekend seems like it's going to be a mountain bike weekend. Following the downhill race on Saturday, the XC athletes will take it to Mgarr to compete for the national championship title. Although the original race location has been changed, the Mgarr trail makes for a great track with technical descents and technical climbs making it an awesome ride.
