This does not make for pretty reading. Irish cyclist’s have qualified in the past for the Olympic MTB events.

The rankings are very poor at this time. BMX seems to be a sport that’s doing lots of development work. However that doesn’t seem to be translating into International improvements.

the reasons for this could vary, however I imagine that if the money trail is followed a major difference could be seen between how the different disciplines if funded.disciplines
