Kingsford Features at NSW State Champs

20 Apr 2017

GYTR Yamaha Junior Racing’s Ryder Kingsford signalled his intentions for the coming season taking an impressive victory at round one of the NSW Junior Motocross Championships held at Fairburn Park, in Canberra.

Kingsford started his day off in fine style, taking pole position in the 9-11 years 85cc class by a huge margin and confident of a great showing once the racing began.

But that quickly came undone when he fell in the opening moto, tasting the Canberra dirt. Kingsford crossed the finish-line in second place but rebounded well in the final two races to win the day with 2-1-1 results and get his championship aspirations in style.

“It was good day for me and my bike was awesome,” Kingsford stated. “The track was pretty tough today with lots of ruts and bumps but it was good to win and get a great start in the championship.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go so well for team mate, Bayley Clancy, who competed in the 12-15 years 85cc and the 13-14 years 125cc classes.

Bayley showed good speed on his YZ85, but crashes ruined any good result while he experienced a frustrating day on the 125.

In a support role with the team was nine-year-old Kayd Kigsford. Racing the 9-11 years 65, Kayd claimed second place with 6-1-2 results and showed he has plenty of potential.

“It was a mixed bag weekend,” said team manager, Darren Thompson. “All the riders trued as hard as they could but weren’t always rewarded with good results. “Ryder rode well but both Bayley and Kayd crashed too many times and it effected their results.

“Both guys have vowed to work hard between now and the next round,“ Thompson ends.     


Round two of the championship will be at the Goanna Tracks facility in Coonabarabran
