Dyce Holds Dual Class lead in Vic Junior MX Champs

23 Jun 2015

Round three of 2015 Victorian Junior Motocross Championships have been run and Won at Cobram border mx club recently with Yamaha Junior Racing’s Cody Dyce and Liam Andrews fit and ready to go.

Saturday morning we were all treated to a crisp but clear day but unfortunately the track conditions were horrendous after sprinklers were left on overnight turning the track into a muddy rutted mess. Practice was halted for two hours while a large machine was summoned to carry out track works in the worst affected areas.

Once Racing got under way it was clear good starts were extra important with an extremely tough and one lined track. Cody was racing his Yamaha YZ250F and his day got off to a shaky start with a fall on his lap dropping him to fifth in moto one.

Next race was looking better with a good start and a race long battle for podium positions with his rivals saw Dyce unable to make a pass stick finishing in fourth. A fired up Cody took off with a holeshot and a comfortable race win in the final moto and his 5-4-1 results put a smile back on his face and was good enough for second on the day.

Sunday came and track conditions were still tough but much better after overnight work by the club.

Liam Andrews was in action on his YZ85, in the 12-15 years Big wheel class. Race one saw Andrews battling inside the top five but struggling with the tricky track conditions and dropping back to seventh by race end.

Andrews hit race two with a more positive frame of mind and showed awesome speed running third before finishing fourth. Race three and Liam got a great start but a second corner crash and a twisted bike meant a tough race but he soldered on to finish the race.

"Today was a bit all over the place,” Andrews said. Race two was the only ride I was happy with as I rode like I know I can and was strong all moto. I almost got the holeshot in Moto 3 then I crashed and twisted my bike which wasn't cool. But, even though it wasn’t the best weekend, at least I'm still third in the championship," he finishes.

Cody was racing his 125 on day two and he was fired up after a frustrating day on the 250. Three hole shots and three dominating wins was just what he needed to retake the points lead and carry a 15 point advantage into the final round.

"What a weekend? It was very tough track but I always love big ruts. Saturday didn't go so well but at least I increased my points lead on the 250F. Sunday I was so pumped to have such a perfect day on my 125, the bike couldn't have been any better and hopefully I redeemed myself a little after Saturday,” Dyce explains.

"It was great to see Liam show the speed to run with the big boys in his class and with more experience he will be up front every race,” said team manager, Cameron Taylor. “Cody showed why he is a champion, fighting back from a no so good day to totally dominate the following day and now lead both classes in the championship.
