A tough day at the office for the men of SERC in Newbridge today. Ronan and Cian rode the A3 with Brian Sugrue taking on his first A4 open race of the season. All the lads finished comfortably if a tad cold and mucky. By the way that’s not makeup Ronan is wearing. Well done lads.
Another great weekend for team SERC across the country. Both Connor and Eoghan finished top 10 in the RAS Maigheo 2 day, Derrick Evans got another podium by taking 3rd in the Blitz in Galway while in the Boyne GP Luke was in a break for most of the day getting caught on the last lap while Cian took a top class 9th and 2nd Junior.
