Finals frenzy at 2011 Honda Australian Junior MX Championship

Posted:

Despite an ominous sky, the sun finally shone on the Honda Australian Junior Motocross Championship today, leaving the Monarto Motocross track damp for the penultimate day of finals competition.

The girls were the first down the start straight, pushing hard in the fourth final of the 85cc and 150cc 12-U16 class. Emma Milesevic from Victoria clinched line honours, along with the best lap time, ahead of Victorian Tayla Jones (AJS Shepparton) and South Australian Amy Bartsch.

NSW rider Mackenzie Tricker (Yamaha Junior Racing) was triumphant in the Female Lites, roaring home ahead of Milesevic and Tayla Jones (NSW).

The 50cc class 7-U9's tackled the damp track well, with Victorian youngster Liam Andrews making it to the finish line in front in front of Queensland's Noah Ferguson (Twisted Sports, MX Race Prep) and Western Australia's Jason Roney.

NSW rider Caleb Clifton was victorious in the 65cc 7-U9 fourth final event, taking the race in front of Western Australia's Regan Duffy and NSW's Korey McMahon (Sutto's Motorex KTM Team).

Hunter Lawrence (KTM Australia) continued to dominate his classes, securing another two first place finishes. The Queenslander swept the field in the fourth final of the 65cc 11-U13, leading Baylee Webb (Western Australia) and Jimmy Griffin (NSW) across the line. The youngster also roared home in the second final of the 85cc 9-U12 class to finish with a twenty second lead over Victorian rider Callum Norton (GMR Motorex KTM) and Western Australian rider Caleb Grothues.

Norton added a first to his 85cc second, snaring the 65cc 9-U11s second final ahead of NSW riders Riley Dukes (SS Racing) and Blake Cobbin (North Coast KTM).

Egan Mastin (GMR Motorex KTM) from NSW snatched line honours for the second day in a row in the 85cc 12-U14 class, clearing the second final event ahead of Queensland's Mitchell Evans (GMR Motorex KTM) and NSW's Jordan Hill (SS Racing).

The fourth final of the 85cc 14-U16's produced a tight race, with South Australia's Jett Anderson shadowed over the finishing line by Mitchell Landy (Victoria) and Sean O'Connor (New Zealand).

It was a red affair in the fourth final of the 150 9-U12's, with the leading trio all charging home on Honda's. NSW rider Riley Dukes (SS Racing) from NSW notched up the fastest time, followed by Jake McGlashan (NSW) and Mitch Johnstone (Queensland).

The leading trio in the 150cc 12-U14 class punched home in the same order as yesterday, with Wayde Carter (Honda Junior Development Team) from Victoria claiming the fourth final with the best lap time result and an eleven second lead over Zak Small (Queensland) and Connor Tierney (Western Australia).

Western Australia's Scott Kramer snapped up victory in the fourth final of the 150cc 14-U16's, followed by NSW duo Corey Hamilton (Factory Spec) and Billy Wilson (KTM Newcastle).

The second final of the 100-150cc 15 years saw close competition on the track, with NSW rider Dylan Wills (SS Racing) securing the best lap time and line honours ahead of New Zealand riders Hamish Harwood and Chase Smith.

Suzuki-mounted Jordan Smith from the United States conquered the 100-150cc 13-U15's for the second day in a row, with Queensland's Joel Dinsdale (Yamaha Junior Racing) and Western Australia's Jayden Rykers switching yesterday's top trio finishing order to come in second and third respectively.

The 250cc 13-U15 class second final saw three now familiar faces put the fastest times on the clock, with Joel Dinsdale making the post in front of Wayde Carter and Jordan Smith.

The last event of the day saw the 15 years 250cc class tear up the track in an action packed second final event. NSW rider Hayden Mellross (Honda Junior Development Team) took victory in an exceptionally tight battle, followed home by New Zealand's Hamish Harwood and Dion Picard.

The final day of competition plays out tomorrow at the Monarto Motocross Track, with sixteen thrilling events set to decide a host of new young Aussie Champions.
