Speaking after the race, Bruni said, “The people are all super-friendly, they all welcomed me, congratulated me for the season and becoming World Champ and I really felt good vibes all weekend. At the race I was a bit scared. I didn’t know if they were going to be wild or aggressive, I laid off especially at the start so Gee and Colin just went faster than me, so I was a bit stuck in traffic. People were just racing big time, it was good fun and I didn’t crash. I didn’t see many people just killing themselves, it was a really good day and really good fun on the hill.”
Omagh boy and reigning Irish enduro champ Kelan Grant came home in first place, ahead of James MacFerran and Conor Bate. Gee Atherton was the highest placed “Fox” finishing 9th followed by Colin Ross and Bruni.
