Due to the vast amount of Logistics involved in this particular event there are also tjhree reserve riders in wait if anything unforeseen happens or a selected rider gets a slight injury. There are still championships to be won and races to be completed both here in Ireland and in the UK by all names mentioned. As we all know with Motocross anything can happen in a split second so a plan B is a must.

MXDN (official reserve ) in order:

Stuart Edmonds
Glenn McCormick
Jake Sheridan

Congratulations to all involved and best of luck over the next couple of weeks. Please note that the Team Manager reserves the right to change the decision on a selected rider or class to be raced if any circumstances do change.
