Round four of the 2018 Airoh Helmets Sunshine State Motocross Series proved to be a good one for the GYTR Yamaha Junior racing duo of Levi Rogers and Jake Cannon who finished the weekend with three first places and a second overall in a very successful days' racing.
Both boys entered the fourth round in good shape and with growing confidence after being able to get some important riding and training in over the recent Queensland school holidays. The track time proved invaluable and was obvious from the moment the gate dropped on the first moto as both boys put their best foot forward on the popular Warwick circuit.
Four rounds in a Levi Rogers finally hit his goal of winning all six races contested for the round. With three races in the 13-14 years 125 and another three in the 13-14 years 250cc, Rogers had racked up five from six in the opening three rounds but wasn‰Ûªt to be denied over the weekend and he simply dominated all six races to bring home the perfect weekend for the boy from Blackwater.
As a result of the perfect weekend, Rogers has extended his series lead in both classes.
‰ÛÏWhen I come to these races, I try to win all of them but up until today I have always made a mistake and lost a race at some point during the day," Rogers explained. "But I felt really good today and both my bikes were awesome so I was determined to get all six and not let this one slip.
‰ÛÏAfter my shoulder injury, I haven‰Ûªt been able to get the ride time I needed with school and racing most weekends so with a small break in racing and the school holidays I was able to get some good riding in and a feel much better from it. I‰Ûªm starting to ride like I know I should so that‰Ûªs good,‰Û
