Tough Start to the NSW MX Champs for the NSW YJR

27 Apr 2011

Round one of the NSW Motocross Championships kicked off over the Easter long weekend on a beautifully prepared track at Clarence, about 90 minutes drive west of Sydney.  Over the three days the weather was fairly kind, with some drizzle Saturday and Monday and clear skies in between.

NSW - YJR riders Jordan Bissaker, Mackenzie Tricker and Brendon Walther all showed over the event that they have the pace to be in podium positions, but will need to work on consistency to see the pace turn into overall results.

Jordan Bissaker raced both the YZ 144 and YZ 250F at Clarence to fifth and sixth place results respectively. Struggling with the damp concrete start pad right across the weekend that paired with a few small crashes cost Jordan dearly. He showed great determination to come through pack in all of his races, however can’t afford to give the front runners that much of a head start.

“I felt like I rode well I just struggled with the concrete start this weekend which was so frustrating! I’ve had good starts off concrete before but just couldn’t work it out this weekend. By the time I got through to the top five the front guy’s were gone.”

Mackenzie Tricker came into the weekend with an injured finger suffered in a crash last weekend. Mackenzie, who is generally a great starter, also struggled in this department, making life a little tougher than it needed to be. She rode a great race in moto one, crossing the line in sixth position. A first turn crash which re injured her finger made for a tough finish to the weekend.

“I felt good in race one, but after my crash in the first turn I hurt my finger again which made it hard to hold on in the final races. I’m ready to work hard to improve before the next round so I’m looking forward to that.”

Brendon Walther started the weekend great with a third and first in his two heat races along with a third place finish in his first final.  A crash in moto two and a flat front tyre in the last moto, while pressuring third place, left Brendon with fourth place overall.

“It started good this weekend with my heat races and the first final but a small crash in the second one made it tough. Then a flat front tyre caused me to have a big crash, I got up and finished though so fourth was ok after that.”
