Lymm biker wins a place on the podium

0

LYMM motor cyclist Sean Neary picked up a second place and a fifth in round two of the Ducati TriOptions Cup at Brands Hatch – leaving him in third place in the rider standings on 54 points.
Afterwards the team Zoek rider said: “P2 in today’s race, I’ll take that! I really wanted that win but wins don’t come easy in this class! Big thanks to the Zoek Racing Team and all our sponsors for always backing me no matter what. I didn’t score any points in the first three races last year so it’s a big improvement!”
Neary was up in the top four throughout free practice and qualifying and began the first of two 15 lap races from a second row grid position in fourth place. As the lights went out Neary got a good start and was up to second place on the first lap. He took the lead on lap three but was pushed back to second place one lap later when Rob Guiver took over the top spot.
Although he was never more than a few tenths away from the leader, Neary could not find a path through to snatch the lead on the short and tricky Indy circuit and towards the end of the race decided to opt for a safe second place and 20 championship points sooner than make a risky move and perhaps throw it all away.
By the time the second race got underway the rain had arrived making for tricky conditions. Neary held the lead for a couple of laps but dropped back to finish the race in fifth place.
He said: “ I racked up some more points in that race and its now on to my home round next at Oulton Park..”
The next round is at Oulton Park over the bank Holiday weekend of May 5-7
