Game on for the MRS Milwaukee team riders.
With the 2017 British Enduro Championship about to get under way, the MRS Milwaukee Sherco team will be heading North, to Elgin for the first round, which takes place this Saturday and Sunday, 15th and 16th April. Elgin is always a very good event and all the MRS team are ready for action and can’t wait to get things under way after the long winter lay off.
New signing James Dent will be in the line-up on his new 3.0 2T Factory Sherco, along with 2016 Expert Champion Tom Ellwood who is moving up a class to compete with the ‘big boys’ on his 3.0 4T Factory bike. Both these young riders have exceptional talent and MRS look forward to working with both riders during the coming season. On a one year deal with an option for the second year Tom Sagar will not be continuing on his 4.5 4T Sherco but will be out in force at this weekend’s National Loxax Trial flying the flag for MRS on his 300 trials bike.
Also in the Championship class with be Sherco-enthusiast Mick Seward’s riders Luke Flack on his 2.5 4T Sherco, who has ridden exceptional well this winter in the extreme events on a 3.0 2T Sherco. Fancying a change his Isle of Man team-mate Jake Subachus has moved up to a 3.0 4T in his efforts to get his best result to date. With his big blue Sherco truck having such a presence at all events we wish Mick’s MPS team all the very best for the coming season.
In the Expert Class MRS Milwaukee rider Jon Hunt is hoping to put 2016 behind him after a disaster at the first round last year, when he was docked three marks on time, which effectively ruined any chances of a result for last year. Riding his 2.5 4T we are sure he will get the result he warrants in 2017 as well as Yorkshire rider Lee Sampson who will competing in the full series this year riding under the MRS TM banner.
We would like to thank our sponsors for the forthcoming season, Sherco, new team sponsors Milwaukee and Rock Oil plus Gaerne, Airoh, FIST, Clice, Michelin, Galfer and Braktec.
