Australia‰Ûªs Newly Crowned AJMX Champs Share Winning Words

Posted:

With the official awards ceremony for the 2015 KTM Australian Junior Motocross Championship taking place earlier this evening; we took the opportunity to catch up with this year‰Ûªs newly crowned Australian Champions.

With a long list of talented names added to Australia‰Ûªs junior motocross history, we checked in with the young superstars to hear everything from what it‰Ûªs like to take out an Aussie title, to what their favorite moment was from the weeklong AJMX event.

Kayden Minear: 50cc Division 2 7-u9 years & 65cc Solo 7-u9 years Australian Champion

The best thing about being an Australian champion in two classes this year is probably just winning.

Today was my favorite moment from the week; I won both of my classes so it was easily my favorite day.

Noah Smerdon: 65cc Solo 9-u11 years Australian Champion

The best thing about this year was good competition, and this was my second time getting an Aussie title.

It was really tough and the track was hard to ride, so my favorite thing was getting the win in such hard conditions.

Cody Chittick - 65cc Solo 11 years Australian Champion

Winning the championship on home soil this year was definitely the best thing about this year, it helped a lot having so much support.

My favorite moment this year was in my first moto when I was racing against Jett Lawrence and I caught him, which was a big achievement.

Jett Lawrence - 85cc 2-stroke / 150cc 4-stroke std wheel 9-u12 years Australian Champion

I‰Ûªm really happy to get the win on the 85, because I had a bit of a bummer on the 65, but I managed to comeback in this one. I have to thank all of the boys for the competition, because if I didn‰Ûªt have them it wouldn‰Ûªt have been as fun for me.

My favorite moment was when I had a bike that was playing up and I had really bad luck but then I came back from dead last to first and that was pretty surprising for me.

Regan Duffy - 85cc 2-stroke / 150cc 4-stroke std / big wheel 12-u14 years Australian Champion

I was pretty surprised to come away with the win this year, the guys in my class have all been there and done it, and they‰Ûªre all Australian Champions already so I‰Ûªm so happy.

For me my favorite moment was when I got a bad start and I came from nearly last back to second so I was pretty happy with that.

Mitchell Outram - 85cc 2-stroke / 150cc 4 stroke std / big wheel 14-u16 years Australian Champion

This title was so important for me, because all of the other years I haven‰Ûªt done very well and I keep crashing, so after that first race for the week I was really happy with what I did, and I just kept the momentum going.

My favorite moment without a doubt was getting that win in that first race; it kept the confidence up for the rest of the week. It helped a lot having W.A behind me ‰ÛÒ I would see them all over the fence cheering me on and that helped me to keep pushing.

Taj Marshall - 128cc ‰ÛÒ 150cc 2-stroke & 200cc ‰ÛÒ 150cc 4-stroke 13-u15 years Australian Champion

I didn‰Ûªt really expect much coming over here, I was just hoping to have a clean run, and have some fun with a good team behind me, so this was a big surprise.

My favorite moment was when I got my first race win. I was so pumped and I didn‰Ûªt really know what to think at the start because I hadn‰Ûªt really won that many races this year but because it was sand I really loved it, and it‰Ûªs made it so much more fun for me.

Matt Fabry - 100cc to 125cc 2-stroke 13-u15 years Australian Champion

I didn‰Ûªt really expect to get the title, but I think I‰Ûªve just got to believe in myself a lot more ‰ÛÒ dreams really do come true and to come away with a National title I couldn‰Ûªt be happier.

I felt pretty confident all week so to be honest the whole event was my favorite moment. I just stayed consistent and got the job done, so it feels awesome.

Hunter Lawrence: 100cc to 125cc 2-stroke 15 years & 128cc ‰ÛÒ 150cc 2-stroke & 200cc ‰ÛÒ 250cc 4-stroke 15 years Australian Champion

My favorite championship I took this year was the on the 250. I enjoy the 250 a lot more. There‰Ûªs more power, it‰Ûªs a bit heavier and the setup on it is sweet so I think it makes it a bit more fun. It was a good week for me, the bike is handling awesome so a massive shout out to Mike Ward and Scott Bishop.

I had a bit of a squid moment and binned it after the whoops and had to come back, so that was a pretty cool race, but the whole week was a lot of fun. Another fun moment was hanging out with a few of the Yamaha boys, I got to know a few more of them over here pretty well and they‰Ûªre all good kids, so props to them.

Danielle Foot - 100cc ‰ÛÒ 150cc 2-stroke / 200cc ‰ÛÒ 250cc 4-stroke Girls 13-u16 years & 85cc 2 ‰ÛÒstroke / 150cc 4 stroke all wheel Girls 12-u16 years Australian Champion

It was difficult the whole week. I had been training for six weeks on a sand track at home but it was nothing like it ended up being here. The track got real rough but my bikes were handling perfectly and I pushed through, so I‰Ûªm so happy to come home with the number one for Victoria.

For me, the whole week was the highlight of my year. I learnt a lot and suppose the last race was the best. I actually didn‰Ûªt win the last race on the 85; I cruised and had a good time, and knew I had wrapped up the championship.
