Round 2 of the 2012 Shell Advance Gippsland Motocross Championships was held at Blue Rock Motorcycle Club and once again the track preparation was superb.
Saturday saw the Juniors hit the track and in the hotly contested 85cc 9-12yrs class Cody Dyce took 3 race wins in A grade followed by Taj Marshall in second and Mitchell Hopkins-Talty in third.
In the 50cc Div 2 Race Tyran Tomich took out 3 race wins and is looking unbeatable in this class. Second place went to Ben Wright with Jacob Sweet coming in third.
250cc 13-16yrs C grade was taken out by Luke Holmes with 2 race wins but the third race wasn't good for Luke and came home in forth. 2 points behind for the day and second overall was Brent Moresco followed closely by Brad Balding who won race 3.

Sunday saw the Seniors hit the track and once again we were greeted to a well prepared track and yet again the numbers were high for the Seniors and the gates were packed in B and C grade.
A grade Lites entertained the large crowed with some close and fast racing and Mick Higgins took first place with 2 race wins for the day. As always Brad Matheson was consistent and finished second closely followed by Ben Gardiner.
Matt Van Sloten was fast and won race 1 but a terrible second race saw him finish fifth overall for the day but he will be one to watch at Round 3.
A Grade open was as always fast and furious and Lee Ellis looked unbeatable and gapped the field in the first 2 races with 2 wins but a no points race in race 3 saw him finish third overall for the day and Chase Mosig taking the overall win followed in second by Ricky Davenport.
Ladies open class was won by Maddy Brown with 3 race wins followed by Courtney Whyte-Dennis in second followed closely by Kelly Forber in third. Kelly took a break from racing for a year and has come back looking like she didn't take a break at all and is riding fast.
The quads entertained the crowd with a few of the riders putting a show and getting some big cheers from the crowd. Michael Smythe got the biggest cheers with some handlebar head butting on a few of the jumps and a few good saves on landing his jumps.
Round 3 will held at Outtrim on Saturday 5th May and Sunday 6th May. Entries close Friday 27th April. See website for entry form and round info http://www.gippymx.com.au/
