GYTR-YJR Set Cracking Pace at State Champs

Posted:

South Australian Alex Larwood made the trek across the border to Warrnambool and raced his YZ85, YZ125 and YZ250F over the weekend and managed to land on the podium in all three classes.
GYTR Yamaha Junior Racing (YJR) riders ripped it up again on the weekend as three of the hard chargers took on the opening round of the Victorian Junior Motocross Championship, held at the Warrnambool circuit while another took duel class wins in Tasmania making it another hugely successful weekend for the junior bLU cRU.

The local Victorian crew of Liam Andrews and Ty Sharp where at the Warrnambool event but were joined by South Australian Alex Larwood who made the trek across the border.

It was the first major hit out for the boys down south and they showed that despite being the first big race of the year, they were prepared and ready to go bringing in several class wins and podiums.
Liam Andrews led the way, winning both the A Grade 125 and A Grade 250cc in an impressive return to racing
Liam Andrews led the way, winning both the A Grade 125 and A Grade 250cc in an impressive return to racing. Andrews has been sidelined with injury for some time after a fall while riding in the US late last year and only recently just got back on the bike.

While he didn‰Ûªt dominant in both classes, he won races when required and was consistent as ever always finishing inside the top three in all six motos.

‰ÛÏIt was good to get the year off to a winning start and a nice way to return back to racing. I‰Ûªm still not 100% but I‰Ûªm starting to feel better on the bike and hopefully things will improve from here as we have a big season in front is us,‰Û
Ty Sharp went on a winning spree of his own taking victory in his 65 and 85cc classes
And the ironman award must go to Alex Larwood. The current Australian 85cc champion didn‰Ûªt want to sit and watch the racing, he wanted to be in it and entered three classes on the weekend. He raced his YZ85, YZ125 and YZ250F over the weekend and managed to land on the podium in all three classes.

Larwood claimed second on his 85cc, third on his 125 and another third on his 250F in an energy sapping weekend.

‰ÛÏIt was tough racing all three classes over the weekend and it did wear me out but I needed and wanted the track time,‰Û
