Before any nature lovers get upset the only blood spilled was from grazed knees elbows and wounded pride.  The riders took on the Mournes and Multiple World Downhill Cup Winner Gee Atherton ‘The Fox’- in a mass rush to get down through granite boulders and pine forest trails.

Riders in action!

But this time the professional was outfoxed by local rider Colin Ross from Stoneyford who thrilled the crowd as he beat off all to take the Red Bull Fox Hunt title at Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails in Kilbroney Park.

Speaking about his win and taking home the coveted trophy Colin said “I’ve had a real blast this weekend.  The course was tough but I managed to beat a World Champion so for me, that is something pretty awesome!
