Empire Kawasaki’s Jayden Rykers Takes Positives From Season Opener

Empire Kawasaki returned to racing at Wonthaggi‰Ûªs 2021 ProMX Championship opener on Sunday, marking the team‰Ûªs national debut with Jayden Rykers competing in MX1 on-board his KX450.

Rykers initially signed with Kawasaki for last season, however, today marked his first outing with the Empire Kawasaki team following the cancellation of last year‰Ûªs series. As a result, round one proved a crucial learning experience for the highly-rated Western Australian.

Qualifying in rain-soaked conditions that only became rougher as the round wore on saw Rykers record the 14th-quickest time overall and his day drastically improved from that moment as he adapted to conditions, to finish with a 7-10 scorecard for eighth overall.

‰ÛÏThe day started off a little slow for me in qualifying, but I got an awesome start in that first moto, so that was good and from there it was still a challenge for me in selecting the best lines ‰ÛÓ I found it hard to piece the track together,‰Û
