Jordan Hill enjoyed a good weekend at the opening round of the NSW MX Champs
Brendan Walther landed on the podium in both classes


23 Apr 2014

Yamaha Junior Racing’s Brendon Walther and Jordan Hill raced their YZ’s to the podium at round one of the Dirt Action NSW Motocross Championships, which was hosted by the Dubbo Dirt Bike Club over Easter.

The event format saw the YJR team mates race their YZ 125’s on the first day and then follow up on day two aboard their YZ 250F’s.

This was Jordan’s first state title race since joining the team this year and  it started off on a rough note with a nasty crash on lap one of his first 125 moto. Jordan recovered from having the wind knocked out of him and re-joined the race half a lap down but raced through to a ninth place finish.

Feeling determined Jordan produced a perfect score for the remaining two races for an overall finish of second for the round in the 15yrs 125cc division.

Day two started with a small crash in the first moto from which he re-joined in fourth place and charged through to pass for the win on the final lap. Another victory in moto two and a safe second in the final race of the day earned him the overall win for the round in the 15yrs 250 4T class.

“It was great to get the state titles underway, my first race on the 125 was a tough one but luckily I was only winded and felt fine for the rest of the weekend. I felt great on my YZ’s and I’m glad I could follow up the second place overall on the 125 with a win on the 250F. I’ll go away and keep working hard and I look forward to round two.”

Long standing YJR rider Brendon Walther had an impressive weekend after only being on the bike for a couple of weeks off the back of a broken scaphoid that he suffered earlier in the year. As expected Brenno built confidence and improved as the weekend progressed. On his YZ 125, Walther fought to 4-3-1 results earning him second overall for the day and a great confidence boost after the break from racing.

Day two was his first major event on a 250F and he carried the momentum from the first day to pilot his YZ 250F to 2-2-2 results for second overall for the round.

“I’m happy with how the weekend ended up, to leave with two second place overalls is great and I feel like I can improve with some more time on the bike. My wrist felt great and I’m just glad I can ride again and work towards improving for round two.”

“I was really impressed with how the boys worked through this weekend”, explained team manager Shane Booth. “They didn’t have it all their own way and had to work through a few things but stayed focused and it paid off for them with great overall results. I’m pumped for them and their families who also put in plenty of time and effort including giving up their Easter long weekend to go racing!”
