Billy Jackson moves into second place after two rounds of the Victorian Junior MX Champs

VYJR Run Hot in Horsham

17 May 2011

The Victorian Yamaha Junior Racing Team swept through the country town of Horsham in western Victoria for round two of the Junior State Championships, leaving with a class win and a podium position in another successful mission.

Joel Milesevic led the way for the team with a stand out performance winning all three motos in the 125/150cc A Grade class. Milesevic was in devastating form and in no mood to fool around as he blasted the competition with roost on way to an emphatic victory and to keep his championship winning streak alive.

Billy Jackson also posted an impressive second overall in the 250cc A Grade class with 2-1-2 moto scores. Jackson was in the thick of the action all day and challenging for race wins in all motos. The strong showing now sees him move into second in the championship at the half way point and more than enough time to track down the leader if he is good enough.

Missing in action over the weekend was young gun Matthew Hopkins – Talty. Matthew is recovery from a broken leg sustained a few weeks ago and will be on the sidelines for at least another month. The team eagerly awaits his return to action to bolster their 85cc presence.

“I’m pretty stoked how the guys went today,” said team manager Ross Beaton. “Joel rode with great speed and at the moment appears a cut above everyone on his YZ144. Billy showed flashes of potential and when he can put together a complete race day he will be extremely tough to beat.”

“Both guys are well placed to have a serious crack at winning their respective championships, so I’m happy with how we are placed and look forward to a strong finish from both of them,” Beaton ends.
