The SR75 Suzuki team were fully represented at the Ben Saville Memorial sprint enduro event at Rogershill Raceway last weekend. The rider line-up included Ben Milward in the Championship Pro Class, Sam Dyer in the Expert class and team owner Geoff Walker in the 40+ Expert Vet class.

The Ben Saville Memorial was an amazing event with around 120 riders entered. It was epic to get the Suzuki RM Army out there having fun with a great crew and fantastic organisation. All of the SR75 riders performed superbly, Ben Milward was lightning fast with an unfortunate crash resulting in a lost lap of the 7 race laps needed, however he was presented with the Annual Ben Saville Trophy for his extraordinary determination to finish the event.

Sam Dyer was participating in his first ever sprint enduro event and showed continuous improvement throughout the day. Sam had a great feeling on his RM-Z250, showing the bikes versatility and handling in all situations. After only one practice lap, the first couple of laps proved very demanding, but Sam pushed on and continued to post quicker lap times, ultimately rewarding him with an impressive 5th in class.

Team owner, Geoff Walker, quickly adjusted to the tricky, narrow enduro circuit and despite a couple of early mistakes, managed to make his way back through the order to claim a brilliant 4th in class.

Geoff commented: “This event was amazing fun and it was great to see our guys riding so brilliantly and the bikes performing perfectly. My race went pretty well with some set up tweeks during the day to get the epic RMZ450 through the tight sections of the track with a massive smile on my face. I was pretty stoked to eventually finish one spot off the podium in 4th! A massive thanks to the organisers of this great event and to all our fellow racers, marshals and supporters on the day. Good times.”

Sam Dyer added: “At the end of the first lap I was happy to get a time on the board after struggling to find lines after only one lap of practice. My second lap was much improved, managing to put down a much better time and lap three again was quicker again after managing to find new lines on track. Lap four and five I had a small crash in a turn and a stall which resulted in losing time on track, but laps six and seven were the best of the day. I have an excellent day and loved my first sprint enduro event, thanks to the SR75 team and all sponsors!”
