Vic YJR in Championship Hunt

28 May 2013

Victorian Yamaha Junior Racing riders of Jed Beaton and Cody Dyce headed to the Colac circuit for round two of Victorian Junior Motocross Championships. Both riders had made a great start to the series and were looking to continue the good form at round two.

Beaton was making an unexpected early comeback from a nasty broken wrist at round one and keen to protect his points lead on his 250. Jed won all three races at round one and after x-rays and clearances from his doctors, it was decided that he was ready to saddle up once again.

Steady as she goes was the order of the day and Jed showed great maturity to gain three holeshots and complete strong rides to come home with 3-2-2 results for second overall and leave the weekend with a slim two point lead in the championship. With six weeks until the next round and lots of hard work, Jed aims to get back to his winning form he had at round one!

"I’m really happy with my day considering I've had six weeks off the bike. The sandy soil got really chopped up which made it tough but my bike handled well and my wrist stood up. I was really feeling it at the end of the races but to sum up my weekend I'd say I stayed safe and got good points so I'm stoked."

Cody Dyce was on his trusty YZ85 for the weekend in 12-15yrs class. He has really been working hard on his fitness since round one of the series as he felt his off bike work needed to improve so was keen to show his hard work was paying off.

Colac is a nice, sandy loam that really chops up so the event would be a test of his hard work.

Cody improved with every ride going 3-3-2 for third overall for the day and maintained his second place in the series. Cody is still the youngest rider in the class and is learning with every race.

"I really liked the track with all the ruts and big bumps. I had an up and down day and my starts really let me down in first two races. My 3rd start was much better and I felt I got faster in every race. I'll keep working hard and can't wait for round 3," Dyce said.

"I'm really happy with their effort this weekend,” explains Team Manager, Cameron Taylor. “They are both running in the top 2 of the respective classers and they showed great fight today.

“Jed showed great courage to come back so quick from injury and Cody just never gives up which is fantastic,” Taylor ends.
