WHEN the Arenacross Tour opens on Friday January 18, it will welcome the biggest-ever line-up of riders from both the Republic and Northern Ireland, to the SSE Arena, Belfast. Six of this racing contingent, who between them will contest the Pro Lites, Supermini and Youth 65 classes, attended a press launch at the SSE to talk about their upcoming Arenacross season. RARING TO GO: Arenacross launch at the SSE Arena with, Drew McCreanor, Glenn McCormick, Robbie McCullough, Martin Barr, Cole McCullough, and James Mackrel Graeme Irwin, MXGP contender and former British MX champ was also in the mix at the launch, and he let slip that he would like nothing better than to kickstart his 2019 season by competing at Arenacross. The Belfast crowd will be ready to erupt in January when the Pro Lites take to the Arenacross dirt-filled battleground, as they’ll have not one but three homegrown heroes to get behind. Headlining the racing onslaught, in the Pro Lites class, is Martin Barr, arguably one of the fastest racers to come out of Northern Ireland. This year has been something of a rollercoaster ride for the 31-year-old, plagued by injury, and then unexpectedly finding himself without a ride towards the end of the season. LOCAL HERO: Martin Barr from Ballyclare PREVIOUS WINNER: Glenn McCormick who no moves up to race in the Pro Lights But as always, the Ballyclare rider dusted himself off, and was soon rewarded with the support of Crescent Yamaha to not only contest the British outdoor championships, but debut the all-new Yamaha YZ250f in the full six-round Arenacross Pro Lites series. Barr will line up alongside a couple of young guns in the form of 23-year-old Glenn McCormick from Larne, on his Unique Fit Out Husqvarna, and 19-year-old James Mackrel from Dundonald on his Yamaha 250f. McCormick, the current Ulster MX2 champ, is no stranger to AX. He was a previous winner of the 65cc and big-wheel 85cc class and last contested the Rookie class in 2014, but hasn’t ridden any Arenacross-style championships since then. Mackrel, on the other hand, will face a steep learning curve when he takes to the Arenacross start-line, but says he’s looking forward to the experience and close racing. YOUNG GUNS: Some of the Team Green Supermini Cup riders LEAN. MEAN, GREEN, RACING MACHINE: Drew McCreanor who will be riding in the Team Green 85cc Series Irish racers will feature heavily in the Youth ranks too, with 14-year-old Drew McCreanor from County Armagh having recently been selected as one of 12 lucky riders to contest the inaugural Team Green Supermini Cup. This exciting initiative will see 12 youngsters between the ages of 11 and 14 line up on identical Kawasaki KX85 machinery, complete with Pro Circuit exhaust pipes. They will be kitted out in the finest matching race kit, pictured left, supplied by Bell, Thor, Oakley and Alpinestars, plus they’ll be given the ‘factory-rider’ experience. Their bikes will be professionally prepped by Kawasaki, taken to the arenas, and housed in a professional paddock set-up. This is an amazing opportunity for these young racers, and young Drew says he’s mightily determined to give it his all when he gets out on the Arena circuit in Belfast. Another first for Arenacross is the inclusion of twin racers in the Youth 65cc class. LITTE WONDERS: Arenacross Team Green Supermini Cup bike and gear Ten-year-old twins, Robbie and Cole McCullough from Ballymena, will be following in the footsteps of their famous dad Philip McCullough and uncle, Adam Lyons, when they place the wheels of their HTM Husqvarnas on Arenacross soil. McCullough senior has also enjoyed a successful three years running the Team Ireland Motocross of Nations team – of which the aforementioned Barr has been a member of for an unbroken 14-years. Even though the boys have won various Irish and Ulster races, their dad confirmed: “To say they’re excited about competing in Arenacross is an understatement.” AND THEY’RE OFF: Arenacross Tour is fast and furious action from the word go The Fantastic Twenty Four ARENACROSS continues to break new ground for 2019 with the introduction of the All-Ireland Cup. Exclusive to the double-header at The SSE Arena, Belfast on Friday and Saturday, January 18-19, the All-Irish class will celebrate the Irish motocross racing scene. Some 24 riders will take part in this first-of-its-kind Arenacross initiative. They’ll engage in timed qualifications and heat races during the day to determine the top six MX1 and MX2. Those 12 local heroes will then go out into the All-Irish Arenacross Main Event on both evenings, pitting wheel-against-wheel in what is anticipated to be a no-holds-barred fight to the chequered flag. An overall champion will be crowned on Saturday night. Race night VIP experiences The Arenacross team have introduced a number of race night experiences for the 2019 Tour, offering a low-cost means for AX enthusiasts to indulge in a spot of exclusive pre-show entertainment or, at the higher-end of the scale, really-push-the-boat-out and luxuriate in full-on VIP pampering. For those wanting early admission via a VIP entrance, the chance to get up close and personal with the riders, take in a private Freestyle MX show and go on a track walk, then a simple booster Pre-Show Experience ticket, which needs to be purchased in conjunction with a standard ticket will do the trick.

I only saw the dog when he was under my front wheel. He had decided to bolt across the road from behind a passing bus; and by then it was too late. I hit him at just under the National Highway speed limit and went down. The next 100-150m were a blur – I got […]
