While we are patiently waiting for the 2023 race season to gather some momentum, the Vitus First Tracks Race Division have been buried deep in the Irish woodlands in preparation for the beeps to start.
We are happy to announce that we are sticking with the same team and the same ethos, we must be having fun. We will be going bigger, we will be going faster and we will be shredding hard at every opportunity.
The team will be getting loose at all the Downhill and Enduro races in Ireland and selected races across the UK. The focus will then be cranked up when the crew tackle some of the worlds gnarliest events. Watch out for our riders onboard Vitus bikes here…
Callum Morris – The time has finally come for the Donegal man to join the DHI World Cup circus in the Junior ranks. If all goes according to plan, Callum will be flying the flag for Ireland in Fort William come August.
Gary Donaldson – After Gary’s 3rd place finish in Trans Madeira at the end of last season his focus has now landed on multi day Enduro events. He’s going back for more and he’s keen to get after it!
Hannah Mullin – Finishing out the 2022 season ranked 9th in the world Hannah’s banking on that experience to push even harder for the Under 21 EDR World Cup. With a few DH races scheduled we also hope to spot her in Fort William.
Catherine O’Brien – Still in recovery mode from her 2nd place at the 24hr Strathpuffer event in Scotland Cato will be heading back to take on 10 Under the Ben and any long distance mountain/gravel events she can convince her friends to do. Ridiculous!
Glyn O’Brien – Always up for a laugh OB will be joining Gary at Trans Madeira then sliding his way across to the Mega Avalanche. If the right challenge comes up who knows where he could end up. Watch this space.
