20 young riders will have the chance of a lifetime when they line up behind the gates at GMHBA Stadium Geelong for Round 3 of the Australian Supercross Championships, presented by Yamaha Motor Australia (YMA).
YMA has confirmed the Geelong Round will be the first supercross to host the YZ65 Cup, where junior riders will have the opportunity to compete at a national level event followed by Round 4 Port Adelaide.
The lucky juniors will be guests of Yamaha's factory race teams, which event promoter Troy Bayliss says is an opportunity for the future stars of Supercross to gain valuable insights into professional racing, including mentoring from CDR Yamaha Monster Energy factory rider Dean Ferris and owner Craig Dack.
"We are pleased to be able to provide the opportunity for junior girls and boys to enjoy our events as much as we do, and to be able to ride a Supercross track within a venue like GMHBA Stadium in front of thousands of fans is sure to help with the future of the sport," Bayliss said.
‰ÛÏOur commitment to juniors has been reaffirmed with the announcement last week of the 85‰Ûªs and Junior Lites joining SX1 and SX2 on track, and Troy Bayliss Events are pleased to say the 65‰Ûªs, 85‰Ûªs and Junior Lites will all contest finals during the Saturday night main programs at both the Geelong and Port Adelaide rounds.‰Û
