glynGLYN O’BRIEN – Head Coach & Guide
Glyn has been riding a bike before he learnt to walk (literally!) – and is probably the most renowned Irish Mountain Biker to date. He has raced on the World Cup Circuit for over 10 years and has many achievements under his belt, notably 3rd place at the legendary Redbull Rampage in 2003, 2nd in the Masters Downhill World Championships, former Irish Downhill Champion and a double Gold Medalist at the World Police and Fire Games.

Glyn is still heavily involved in all aspects of mountain biking including event management, trail design, coaching, guiding and continues to race in order to satisfy his competitive nature!
