Sometimes rain can be your friend , it keeps dust away and softens the track. When it comes down in thunderstorm like quantity it definitely is not our friend.
Sunday was such at Blakes Pit where two heavy showers turned what was a mixed track into something more akin to an Enduro. Race one and two were fine , the youths had the worst out in both downpours but race 3 turned to be much more difficult. Nothing impassable just sloppy. Here the Enduro riders showed their experience, riding around with some degree of confidence … others struggled but got there . When it’s wet like that, stay in the rut.
The club given the ground had to make this event a little more difficult than Brittas but young MX rider Jordan Keogh still showed a clean pair of heels to everyone including the very experienced David Coates. Wet track or not they circulated without any issue.
Sam Cullen cleared the Senior class , Adam Reid the Clubman , Gene Sheehan Sportsman with Vitalyi Lawson the youth on the last corner and Lee Darcy the 85 cc. Rider of the day
Ben Braithwaite. Great to see the youths enjoying the rain !
Thanks again to Jimmy Jones , Sean Blake , Dermot , Robbie and Co, Dave Darcy and Co plus all helpers and timekeepers.
Despite the final conditions we hope you all enjoyed .
