Team Wideopenmag’s Chris Cumming wins Irish National DH Champs

Great news for Team Wideopenmag young Gun Chris Cumming, who just brought home the Irish National DH title.

We’re chuffed to announce that our man Chris Cumming just took the Youth Irish National Championship at Bike Park Ireland.

Chris went in to the weekend hungry for the win having missed out in 2017 at his home track at Rostrevor.

He got up to speed for the race with a week at the Megavalanche with a 2nd place in Cadets and plenty of British National Racing in the months before, including a win at Cwmcarn. He also worked on bike setup during the weekend with Wideopenmag mechanic Chaz to get his Nukeproof Pulse dialled in for the fast, rough, bone-dry track.

Race day went well with no dramas and a fastest time in seeding and in his final race run.

With the title in the bag, Chris is looking forward to Rhyd-y-Felin British Nationals and finishing off his youth season on a high. Once that’s done, he’ll be on to his first year as a Junior and if all goes well his first World Cup.

Chris would like to thank all of Team Wideopenmag’s sponsors for helping him to win:
