Jeremy Durrin was the first Neon Velo rider to compete at a World Championship event. After a great season in the US, seeing Jeremy on the podium several times as well as taking a big victory at the Manitoba Grand Prix, he was named to the 7 rider team.
The race took place on an iconic track at Circuit Zolder. With heavy race for the two days leading up to the event, it turned into a very technical and tough race. Durrin held his own racing amongst the best and we are happy to see him representing his country.
