VIC YJR In Contention at Colac

7 May 2015

Colac Motorcycle Club hosted round two of Victorian Junior Motocross Champions this past weekend and everyone was greeted with a perfectly prepared track with the sandy loam full of moisture.

Cody Dyce and Liam Andrews were itching to get out there and blast some sandy berms on their YZ's. Saturday’s program saw Cody on his 125 defending his perfect score from round one and Liam riding his 85bigwheel was looking to improve and show his hard work between rounds.

Cody's day got off to a rough start getting tangled in a first turn pile up. After restarting his bike in dead last he battled all the way back to 5th at the flag. Race two started with a holeshot followed by a fierce battle between Dyce and Wade Kirkland with Cody holding the lead for five laps but was in second at the flag. Race three was another close battle for the entire seven laps with Dyce coming home in second again. The 5-2-2 was good enough for third overall.

Liam Andrews has been working super hard since round one on both his fitness and speed. He had a great battle in race one coming from an average start well outside the top 10 working hard for the entire race to get himself to 4th at the finish. The next two races Liam came home in 5th and 4th for a strong consistent day. His results were enough for equal third but fourth on count back.

"Today was really cool,” Andrews said. “I nearly got my first podium in the big wheel class. I'm stoked with my first race today and I felt like I passed half the field. I still need to find a way to get stronger for the whole motos,” he finishes.

Sunday saw Dyce racing the 250 class and was also the points’ leader after round one. Race one was a huge battle between four riders with Cody spending almost the entire race in second eating roost on a track that was proving to be very one lined and tough to pass. Cody soon ran out of tear offs and found it difficult to see which caused a small crash then coming home in eighth position.

Races two and three were great battles which saw Cody come home with impressive race wins. 8-1-1 was good enough for second overall but he extended his points lead in the series.

"This weekend was a little up and down, I struggled to ride like myself on my 125 and I think I need to practice a little more on it between events. Sunday I rode much more like I know I can, it's just a bummer I had that small crash in race one," Dyce said.

“What a weekend,” offered team manager, Cameron Taylor. “Both boys showed a lot of heart and never once gave up. Cody was a little off Saturday but was on fire again Sunday. Liam is still one of the youngest in the class and is learning so much every time he lines up which is so awesome to see.”
