VIC YJR Success In Gippy MX Series

3 Jul 2013

Victorian YJR Duo Cody Dyce and Jed Beaton have just competed in and dominated rounds four and five of the Victorian Gippsland Centre Champs held recently. Round four was held at Rosebud circuit, easily Victoria's sandiest circuit and known to dish out tough conditions for bike and rider.

Cody Dyce had his YZ85 in 12-15yrs class singing all day and feeling at home in the deep sand easily winning the first moto and after a small fall and playing catch up finishing 2nd in moto two to win the round.

Jed Beaton was doing his usual double duty on his YZ 125 and 250F. Beaton dominated all day winning all four motos after good starts and a pace no one could match on the day to win on both bikes.

Round five was held at Korumburra and proved to be another successful day for both YJR riders. The boys were greeted with near perfect track conditions with the club doing a great job.

Cody got great starts and apart from one small crash had a near perfect day going 1-2-1 to take the overall and extend his points lead in the  eight round series.

Jed once again rode both classes winning all three races in 250 A-Grade by nearly 10 seconds and gained confidence with every race. On his 125 Jed managed to go 1-2-1 for another round win. An average start and tough resistance by former team mate Matthew Hopkins-Talty held him from a perfect score card for his weekend.

Cody had to say, "These last two rounds and been great and I'm learning every time I race. We had some motor work done before round four and my YZ is really singing making my job a little easier. I can't wait for 2 weeks’ time at final round of the Victorian MX Champs round to see if I can get my first moto win in the older class."

"After my wrist Injury and missing 2 rounds of the series, I’m really starting to get back into my grove. I've been working hard and my bikes are going great,” Jed stated.

Team manager Cameron Taylor also raced both rounds on his YZ250 2 stroke in lites class and put in some solid results against stiff competition. Round four at Rosebud, Cameron was right at home in one of his favourite tracks going 2-1-1 for the win in the deep sand.

Round five was a little bit tougher going but things got better with each race going 3-2-1 for second overall.

"I've had a great couple of weekends racing with two great tracks and I love racing on the 2 stroke especially in the sand. These guy guys are making it harder all the time but I still enjoy the feeling of competition,” said Taylor.
