The first of four rounds of the Victorian Junior Motocross Championships was run at Cobram this last weekend under sunny skies and good rider numbers.
The Victorian motocross scene seems to be the place to be with riders from almost every state lining up to make this state championship the one to win.
Liam Andrews, 14, was back for his third season with YJR but stepping up to the larger capacity 125 and 250cc bike. He was joined by new team mate for this season, Ty Sharp who contested the 9-12 years 65 and 85cc divisions.
Liam has taken to his 125 and 250 like a duck to water and his lead up form has been good. He was confident of putting his YZ's right up the pointy end. Andrews‰Ûª started the weekend racing his YZ250F and posted 4-6-3 results to round out the day in fourth place and showed that he has speed to run with almost anyone. Like always starts proved to be the difference at this rutted track and his starts were not quite what he needed but he fought hard for every position.
Liam had a rough start to his 125cc campaign when in moto one he collided with a lapped rider and bent his gear shaft back to the foot peg. As a result, he was forced to ride the rest of the race stuck in third gear but still finished fourth. He rebounded well in the final two motos to finish both in second place and round out the class in fourth place.
