Yamaha Junior Racing‰Ûªs Cody Dyce has won the 2016 Australian Junior Motocross Championship in the 15 years 125cc division after the final day of competition was wrapped up at the Riverland Raceway, Renmark, in South Australia on Saturday morning.
In a week that challenged all competitors that saw track conditions change from dust to mud and back again as well as wind that cut like a knife, it was the Victorian based Dyce that rose to the occasion and claimed another national championship mounted on Yamaha‰Ûªs YZ125.
The week started roughly for Dyce who struggled to find his mojo in the heat races but still managed to qualify through to the finals and was determined to turn things around as the action heated up later in the week.
In an eventful three race final for the championship, Dyce put together an unbeatable 2-1-1 results to lock down the championship and stamp his authority in the highly competitive class. Dyce had to fight off all his rivals who pressured him through the final days but it was the young Victorian that stood tall and took the win.
He ably backed that up with a third place finish in the 15 years 250cc class. A fall in the first final made his chances of a class victory extremely tough but he continued to fight on and finished with 7-2-5 results to take third and get on the podium for the second time during the week.
‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs been a long week here and I‰Ûªm glad to get a championship in my final year of racing juniors,‰Û
