Kyle Webstar takes second at round two of the WA Junior MX champs

Wellard Yamaha Podiums in Kalgoorlie

27 Apr 2011

Over the long weekend, the second round of the W.A, State MX Championships was held in the goldfields town of Kalgoorlie seven hours East of Perth. Thirty five degree weather greeted all riders to one of the fastest hard pack circuits in the West.

Kyle Webster (Cully’s Yamaha) was out to pin back some points he lost at Wanneroo a few weeks earlier at the first round. With the added motivation of it being his birthday the following day and his Grandmother being there to watch, Kyle set about showing he was nearly back up to full speed since returning from injury.

Primarily a sand specialist the young charger showed he is no slouch on the gravel either. Kyle constantly put his YZ250F at the front of the pack in each of the three races and finishing second overall in the 13 to 14 years 250F class with  4- 2- 1 race results.

“I think I was trying too hard in the first and second race making me a little tight so I tried to chill out a little in the last and got the holeshot.  Jayden was right on my rear guard for the whole race so I knew I had to ride smooth and not make any mistakes. My bike was really good today it felt strong and handled well,” commented Webster.

Jayden Rykers (Mandurah City Yamaha) was a man on a mission at Kalgoorlie. Sitting in second for the championship he was set to bag as many points as possible.  With a first in race one he looked like he could dominate the day’s proceedings but a first turn crash in the second race left him dead last.

 As we have seen before, the gritty young pilot remounted his bike and proceeded to show everyone why he is a contender for the title riding back to fourth place by the checkers.

“I got all out of shape and went down in the first corner. Luckily my bike fired after just a couple of kicks which allowed me to get going quickly, so I just put my head down and rode as hard as I could,” Rykers had to say.

In the last race Jayden battled out with his team mate to come home in second recording 1-4-2, narrowly losing second outright to Kyle on a count back.

Small Wheel 85cc rider Matt Fabry (Causeway Yamaha) was looking forward to the Kalgoorlie hardpack circuit to help even up the age disadvantage that affected him in the sand of Wanneroo.

Nine year old Matt used his power to weight advantage and wound to the stops riding style to show the rest of the field that he deserves respect. Two fifth places and an awesome third nearly gave him his first podium finish in only his second competitive ride for the team.

“I really had fun out there today my YZ 85 was going great and I loved all the big jumps,” a happy Fabry added.

“Today was a good result for the team as we nearly had all three riders on the podium. Kyle and Jayden are just the best advertising for fast action packed riding, they are team mates who both want to win and always attract plenty of attention while duelling it out for positions on their YZ 250F’s,” Team Manager Peter Strickland explained.
