Welcome to Enduro World Series Ireland.

Things are kicking off nice and early over in Ireland today for the second round of the 2015 Enduro World Series and our man on the ground is hotshot photographer Seb Schieck.

If the first snippets of video to come out of the event are anything to go by, it's looking slippery and tech in the trees, and Seb's shots confirm it is certainly not going to be an easy ride. We'll be bringing you a whole gallery of racing shots later today (the racing is all fought over one day at this event), but for now here's a selection of absolute beauts from Friday and Saturday practice.
