Results: Ulster Championship RD2 -Loughbrickland

After the Ulster Championship kicked off at Claudy, the second round of the series took place at totally different conditions at Loughbrickland.

In the expert class it was a battle between the Meara Brothers at a track they know very well. Race one went Jason’s way after putting pressure on his older brother but just after passing him he lost the front and had to do the work all over again but he got the job done looking very comfortable and carrying a lot of corner speed.

Jordan McCaw rode a very strong race in third.  Richard Bird and James Mackrel went down on the first lap but rode well to come through to fourth and seventh respectively. In the MX2 class, Jordan Keogh took the win.

After some rain in between the moto’s it meant a slower, slicker and rougher track for race two. John Meara took another brilliant start with Jason outside the top five but he made a number of fast passes. By the time Jason worked his way into second, John had around a ten seconds gap and was looking comfortable.

However, Jason started to close and with a lap to go was in hot pursuit. He just ran out of time though and had a tip over with two corners to go which allowed John to take a very impressive win.

Richard Bird rode well to come home in third ahead of James Mackrel. 41 year old, Tommy Merton had a good day finishing sixth overall. In the MX2 class, Jordan Keogh took another strong win.
