In the same class, Dromara’s Ryan Adair on the Adair Electrics/Portadoen Fireplaces Suzuki seems to be stuck together with Greyabbey man Craig Browne on his Smoke Vent KTM this year, both of them finishing inside the top 10, with Craig besting Ryan by five points.

Meanwhile, in the Premier MX2 Class, Jason finished second overall on his Norman Watt Motul Kawasaki with three fine second places despite still being in pain from his hamstring injury. He was beaten only by Glenoe’s Glenn McCormick.

Semi Expert MX1 Class saw Aaron Ashton on his SDR KTM finish fourth overall as our only representative on the day.

Another local rider in action was Dromara’s Ross Adair, who finished sixth overall in the Clubman’s MX2 Class on his White Lightening Honda.
