Drew Armstrong ( Vitus First Tracks Race Division) got a bursary for the second year in a row from the project and repaid me instantly with Champion status. The young man from Co-Down reminds me of a young Ben Reid, as on that age already top 20 in the world, and with already some top results in Britain and Europe he could become the new Irish face in the world of Enduro. As I don’t have any understanding of this sport and was not present, I can not commentate how it was and went but Drew told us this ” Belting day at @vitusfirsttracksmtb Round 3 in Ravensdale for Irish Champs and @world_enduro Qualifier. So happy to get the u21 win and become Irish Champ and also 3rd fastest time of the day. Heading to Europe now for 2 weeks for some more racing and I couldn’t be more excited! Huge thanks to @glynobrien and @cato_ob for another top event” Another good result for his teammate Jack Devlin (Vitus First Tracks Race Division) who took bronze in the U/21 section. Drew was 3th overall time in an event who had over 250 entries. Congratulations are in order Drew and good luck this summer.
