VIC YJR Impress at State MX Champs

26 Mar 2014

The Warrnambool Motorcycle Club hosted round one of Victorian Junior Motocross Championships this past weekend with VIC YJR riders Cody Dyce and Angus Gelly eager to get their season under way and off to a good start

Both riders were double classing it over the weekend, with the 250cc events on Saturday and the 125 class contested on Sunday.

Cody Dyce only stepped up to the 250 just a week before the event and with very limited time on the new bike his plan was to have fun and learn the new bigger and more powerful four stroke. That plan quickly went out the window when Cody went out and won his first ever race against the states’ best junior racers.

Cody next two races went nearly as well with a second and third to finish the day equal first in a stunning debut for him on the new 2014 YZ250F.

Sunday saw Cody competing on his more familiar 125 and he had another solid day with results 3-2-2 for second overall and great haul of points for the first round.

"Winning my first race on a 250 was really exciting. The bike is heaps of fun to ride and it was a big confidence booster.

"The track was really tough to pass but it had plenty of cool ruts in the corners which made it fun and my bikes were running awesome all weekend," Cody said.

Angus Gelly had a rollercoaster weekend. Angus had a rough first 250 moto with a small fall costing him many positions to finish 11th but great starts in the next two races put Angus at the front of the pack. Race two Angus fought hard to finish third and race three Angus was running a great second with a couple of laps left when he hit a kicker and crashed heavily and failed to finish.

Angus was unable to race day 2 two with a shoulder injury.

"I really feeling great today and riding better than ever. I even ripped out a holeshot, it was just a pity that I hit that kicker which ended my weekend early,” Angus explains.

"Both guys rode Fantastic this weekend, said Team Manager, Cameron Taylor. “ Just shows Cody’s talent to come out and win his first ever race he enters on a 250, then hardly made a mistake in next five races.

“Angus really impressed in race two and three and that was the best I've seen him ride,“ Taylor ends.
