The MXR Podium with YJR's Cody Dyce front and centre

Dyce Dominates MXR Cup

1 Aug 2016

Yamaha Junior Racing’s Cody Dyce dominated the Yamaha Rising Stars Rookies cup with a brilliant 1-1 performance over the weekend that ran in conjunction with Round eight of the MX Nationals in Shepparton, Victoria.

Dyce, mounted on a YZ125, worked hard for his win in race one after a wire to wire duel with Celeb Grothues. Dyce made his move into the lead on lap three but Grothues shadowed Dyce until the final stages of the race when the 15year old Victorian was able to move clear and take the race win.

Race two and Dyce was back a little from the start but it wasn’t long before he charged his way to the front and rode off into the distance to take another race win.

The 1-1 result now sees Cody move to the top of the Rising Star Rookies score board with the final round to be ran at Coolum on August 30.

The win was also the perfect preparation for Dyce as he jets out next week to represent Australia at the World Junior Motocross Championships in Russia.

“That was a tough track to ride and I haven’t been on something as rutted as that before,” Dyce explains. “It was crazy how rutty and rough it was so I’m just glad to get through without any injury and ride well.

“My form the last few weeks has been good and I have worked hard as I prepare to go over to Russia next week. I have received a lot of help from a heap of people and I want to get them the best result I can as a reward for what everyone has done for me lately.

“Thank you to Yamaha Junior Racing and all our team sponsors as well as WEM and Yamaha for sponsoring and supporting this race,” Dyce ends.

YJR also had two more riders inside the top 10 with Queensland’s Jake Williams finishing seventh for the round while NSW’s Michael Driscoll landed in eighth. Both commented after the race how challenging the track was for them and how much they learnt by contesting a race at a professional level.

All three riders will be back in action for the final round of the Yamaha Rising Star Rookies at Coolum.
