Jordan Hill leads the NSW Junior MX Championships

Hill Strengthens Championship Position

10 Jun 2014

YJR NSW’s Jordan Hill strengthened his championship lead at round two of the NSW motocross championships, held at Hastings Valley Motorcycle Club on the NSW mid-north coast. The teams’ younger rider, Brendon Walther, unfortunately missed the event due to a wrist injury sustained at a race a few weeks prior.

Although forecast to receive some rain over the weekend it never eventuated and the riders enjoyed great track conditions for the two days of racing.

Day one of the event saw Jordan racing his YZ 125 in the 15yrs 125cc class. Of the three races contested two ran to plan with solid starts and confidence inspiring victories, although Jordan was tested in the second moto, going down hard in a first turn pileup and re-joining the race in last pace. He charged through the pack and made very good use of the longer 15 minute motos that the 15yrs classes have to finish the race in fourth position. This combined with his two wins were good enough to get the overall for the day and take the championship lead.

Lining up on his YZ 250F on day two, Jordan delivered some great performances and although the day produced 2-2-2 results he built some confidence knowing his speed is good and that he can charge through the pack well.

Starts were what cost Jordan the opportunity to challenge for race wins in the first two motos, although he turned things around for the last race of the day leading the pack through the first turn. Jordan also extended his lead in the championship heading into the third and final round.

“This weekend went well; I felt good on both bikes and was pretty lucky in the first turn crash on Saturday to not be too sore. Sunday was a little frustrating but I feel like I rode well and fixed my starts by the end of the day so it was good to learn from that. I’m looking forward to the final round at Oakdale.”
