SA-YJR Stamp Four State MX Titles

11 Sep 2014

The final round of the SAMX Titles was run over the weekend at the famous Crystal Brook Motocross track on a fine and sunny weekend, the first for the series. The boys showed up to race and did themselves proud taking home an armful of championships for season 2014.

Nick Day lined up on board his YZ250F and YZ125 and with two titles in sight and a 40point lead up his sleeve in both classes, he knew he just had to play it smart.  But that wasn't his game plan at all and Day showed up to win, and win he did. Taking five out of six moto wins across the day on both bikes he showed why he is now the South Australian Champion. Nick didn't get great starts all day, but put his skills to work, passing his way to the front and never looking back.

"My goals became a reality today as I set out to win both titles this year and it happened. This is my last year in juniors and I wanted to go out with a bang,” Day said.

“I will now get ready for the junior nationals at Appin. The track was great today and my bikes were awesome so a big thanks to all the team sponsors," Day ended.

Alex Larwood also had two titles in sight. The little champ also had a good points lead in both classes but that did not stop him from taking all six moto wins for the day and in doing so he now also owns two SAMX titles. Alex showed his dominance in both classes with some big wins, his style and race craft was clearly a step ahead of his competition.

"I had an awesome day today, winning all my races. I am so happy to win both titles," said young Alex.

Thomas Larwood  came into the final round looking to make up some points after missing a round. With good starts all day Thomas landed 6-2-3 results for third overall in the 85cc 12-U16yrs which elevated him to 4th in the championship after missing round two. As well as riding his YZ85cc he also lined up on his YZ 125cc for the first time. Not being intimidated by the older bigger lads, he holeshot all three moto's and ran up front for a few laps in each race. He ended up with 5-7-6 results which put him sixth overall for the day which was a great introduction to the class in preparation for next year.

"I am very happy with how today went. I got wicked starts today, especially on the 125. I am looking forward to the Junior Nats in a few weeks’ time," said Thomas.

SAYJR Team Manager Shane Metcalfe was stoked with his SAYJR boys for their efforts.
"I was really happy with all three boys today. This was our most successful year claiming four titles as a team and it is extremely rewarding to help boost these young lads and guide them to where they are.

“Nick rode awesome and showed he really is a champ. Alex is just a gun and is really someone to watch in the future and I was really impressed with Thomas this weekend. Riding both classes and stepping up onto the big bike is a big change and he handled it with ease and turned some heads along the way. Now the boys will focus on the Junior Nationals were I am hoping they can all have a successful run and maybe land on the podium," said Metcalfe.

The next race for the SAYJR team will be at the Australian Junior Nationals at the Appin Motocross Track in NSW which starts on the 27th of this month.
