Sports Turf Industry backs motorbike champions
By Carol Dutton
Three well-know companies, Tarmac Topsport, Nickerson Seeds and Inturf have helped Mike Seward, MD of Wigginton based Seward Turf Maintenance ride into fifth place in the final round of the European Enduro (motorcycle) Championships in Germany, awarding him the trophy for fourth place overall.
Leading a six man team and competing in a strong international field which included five times world champion Gianmarco Rossi, who won the title, Seward was lying seventh until the final day when he managed to pull up three places.
Four weeks later, the same sponsors supported Seward in his bid for the international title. Heading a three-man team he took part in the International Six Day Enduro (ISDE) championships in the Slovak Republic, and although he had to withdraw following a technical breakdown, his teammate, Jim Wright from Ripon took his first bronze medal.
