Nick Day in action
Thomas Larwood on his YZ85

SAYJR Keep the ball rolling at SA MX Champs

25 Apr 2013

Round two of the South Australian Motocross Championships was held down at the Mac Park circuit in Mount Gambier this past weekend. The weather was cool but the racing was pretty hot with a short track and high speeds and we saw some superfast, close racing from the SAYJR boys in pursuit of the round win.

Nick Day took charge on board his YZ125 and really stamped his name on the field, taking all three moto wins and looked extremely comfortable in doing so. But things didn’t go as smoothly on his YZ250F with a fall in race one, then he fought on bravely in the final two races for two thirds placing’s to claim fifth overall for the round.

"I am happy with my 125 races but still need to do some work on my 250F. Hopefully the next race will suit me a little more and I can get a win as I feel as though I can do it,” Day stated.

Thomas Larwood came to Mount Gambier with the points lead in the 9 – 11 years 85cc class which he doesn't want to hand over. Thomas rode consistently all day and took three second finishes in another top showing for the young rider. Despite his starts, Thomas was able to pass his way quickly through the field and snare three top results and keep him well in contention for the championship.

"I felt good today and my bike ran great,” Larwood offered. I made a few mistakes but that’s racing and I hope not to make them again and get the win at the next round.

Oscar Maule showed up to Mount Gambier with the mind set to improve from round one. He struggled with his starts in the first two races and finished eighth in both events. But he was able to turn that around in the final race and rode with aggression to score a top four position and land in seventh overall for the round.

"I am pumped with my last ride but bummed out at the same time because I forgot to press play on my Go-Pro so I can’t even watch it. My starts still need a bit of work but I’m heading in the right direction,” Oscar said.

The SAYJR boys all did a great job today and all made improvements across the day which I'm excited about. The next three rounds are all on more open technical tracks which hopefully will sort everyone out that bit more." Stated Team Manager, Shane Metcalfe.
