Multiple champion Rea is still a school customer
Jonathan Rea came out to show his support as 'Arenacross For Schools' made a welcome return.
The five-time World Superbike Champion was joined by multiple national Motocross Champion Graeme Irwin, Etec Apico CCM Racing's Stuart Edmonds as well as youth heroes Charley Irwin and Lewis Spratt as pupils from Ballymacash Primary School, St Aloysius Primary School (both Lisburn), Omagh County Primary School and St. Cillian's National School from Dublin enjoyed a dirt-filled educational day at W5.
Hosted ahead of The Arenacross Tour staging its opening rounds at Belfast's SSE Arena tomorrow and Saturday, the unique field trip is linked to project partners STEM - science, technology, engineering and mathematics - which works to educate young people and give insight into alternative career opportunities.
The 200 plus students witnessed exclusive behind the scene tours and talks from the makers of the AX Tour, as well as lapping up a private show by the UK Freestyle Motocross Team.
