Dominating the 2019 Irish Youth MTB categories, Donegal’s Callum Morris is a rider to watch for and a definite star in the making.
Just turned 13 years old, the Dirtyrides MTB Apparel rider has just signed off an incredible season by winning all-but-one race he entered.
Claiming Youth titles in both the Gravity Enduro Ireland Series and First Tracks Enduro Cup, Morris secured eight wins from eight starts, while along the way setting stage times that made his presence felt in the overall rankings.
In the Irish Downhill Series that form continued too.
Winning Juveniles at Carrick and Bree, a sprained ankle at Shronaboy Farm denied him a clean sweep, but with a heroic fourth place result, it was more enough to take that title too and claim his 2019 hat-trick.
Drama struck at the Irish DH Champs at Rostrevor when a broken swing arm in practice looked to put him out of the running.
But ‘borrowing’ parts from him brother’s bike got him back on track. Unfazed, he went on to win the Juveniles National title by a whopping 14 seconds.
With the Gravity Enduro Ireland title fresh in his back pocket, we caught up with him at Carrick to find out more about his winning season and what 2020 holds in store…
