Founded in 1999 by Colin Finley, Mark Dickson, Joe Ward & Ricky McKillen to coincide with the opening of Ricky’s bike shop (Plush) in Mallusk, Belfast. Five other prolific members from the early days who are still on the circuit, are Sparko, Honcho, Rosco, Shaggy & Stevie Bell.
The agenda remains the same – to provide value for money racing, encourage new & younger riders to the sport and generally enjoy riding on the edge.
PLUSHmtb quickly became synonymous with the Winter League at Moneyscalp holding many rounds over many years, also holding the Irish Champs in Ravensdale for a few years, plus many other NPS rounds over the years.
As always with a strong focus on DownHill, 2011 sees a reinvention of the club with many new members and a re-creation of the Ulster League, back to basics 1 day DH events. New club jerseys, a website & Facebook links will all help to promote the club.
