Young Moneymore motocross rider's dreams rev up

Young Andrew Anderson is a rising star in the very competitive world of Motocross.

The eight-year-old Moneymore schoolboy recently celebrated becoming Ulster Champion.

An incredible achievement given that Andrew only got involved in the sport when he was three years old.

The Moneymore Primary School pupil first 'took the plunge' into competition aged six.

He was encouraged by his dad and uncle who spotted Andrew's good technique and dedication to the sport.

Andrew rides a KTM 50cc Auto, which is sponsored by Redesign Kitchens Moneymore, and already his rider's number #48 is recognised on the circuit.

What makes the future look promising for this young competitor is that he has achieved consistent podium finishes since competing.

He has won three championships to date in his short career, and is now the current Ulster Champion, Beyond Signage Champion and MCCNI Champion.
