    So Eric, tell us a bit about yourself:

    My name is Eric Mullin. Im 21 and have been riding motocross since I was 15. I began to ride competitively at 17. My first bike was a Yam YZ85 and since then I've been hooked.

    Neil Lyons is an Irish roadracer local to our shop, quiet man, loves the roads and general all round nice-guy. I actually got to know Neil by meeting him in Blanchardstown hospital when we were both a bit broken - the physio center in the hospital was like the biker social club at the time!

    A few fans are running a fundraiser Poker Run on April 21st to help is racing efforts in 2012. You can catch all the details on the Facebook event page HERE.

    I got a chance to catch up with him recently and here's what he had to say:

    So Neil, it's great to hear that you're having another go at the road racing for 2012. What have you been doing over the winter months to prepare for this season?

    I've mostly been cycling to build up strenght in my legs. I've also been riding some MX to get my eye back into the game.

    What bikes and classes are you riding in 2012?
