SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT: Keoghs Crisps

We have a few really great sponsors helping with the Allmoto.ie/Yamaha Motocross Team for 2018 and, this week, we paid a visit to one - Keoghs Crisps.

Derek Keogh raced motocross on an Allmoto bike years ago and the family behind Keoghs have always been bike guys. At one stage they even had a practice track which we used right at their yard - so it seemed a perfect match up for them to come onboard with the team. I spoke to them about the race team idea late last year and, straight away, they were keen to help behind the scenes.

If you’re not aware, the Keogh family to a brilliant success story - a North Dublin based farming family producing potatoes for over 200 years. In recent years the next generation of Keoghs (Ross, Derek and Tom) have turned the business into an internationally recognized crisp brand making the tastiest crisps around - Keoghs Crisps.

I was lucky to get a tour of the facility. Simply put it’s amazing…....it’s actually hard to describe exactly just how impressive it is. Under one roof I got to see field potatoes turned into crisp bags in packaged boxes that were heading off to an Etihad Airline flight somewhere in the world. If I get time I’ll pop out with a video camera next time for a full tour.

Remember - support those who promote the sport!
