Colin O’Donoghue third in round two of Pro Ride Enduro Championship.

Rally driver, turned off road motorcycle racer Colin O’Donoghue finished third in the second round of the Pro Ride Enduro Championship at Tinker’s Hill, County Down on Saturday.

It was his second podium of the season, having won the expert class of the opening round earlier in June.

He hopes to contest the entire five-round championship on his KTM 300 EXC Two-Stroke as well as retuning to rallying when the sport resumes in the Republic of Ireland.

“It was a full motocross track and looped into fast flowing woods section , the speed of this race was double compared to round one,” he said.

“I got off to a poor start off the start-gate maybe sixth or sevnth moved up to second on the second lap

“I made few mistakes in woods and dropped down to fourth and then just settled myself and managed to come away with third.

“I am very happy considering it was my first time on a motocross track and didn’t feel comfortable with the big jumps,”  

Colin was helped by fellow Killarney man Aaron Farrell who was working in the pits for the duration of the race.   

Round three takes place on August 21 in County Derry.
