South Australia‰Ûªs Alex Larwood led another strong performance from the GYTR Yamaha Junior Racing riders at the 2017 KTM Australian Junior Motocross Championships at Horsham by claiming the 12 to Under 14 85cc national championship.
The week-long event recently wrapped up at Horsham that saw Yamaha riders pull down one championship victory, two second place finishes and two thirds with riders challenged with a variety of track and weather conditions throughout the week.
But all eyes were on Larwood, as he was simply a cut above his rivals on his YZ85cc. He was in fine form from the moment he hit the track on day 1 and went undefeated all week, winning all his qualifying races before really turning up the heat in the finals and take the maximum 105 points and his very first national championship.
