Impressive debut for BCP Pro Circuit Honda at Round One of the Vic Titles

Posted:

The newly formed BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior Development Team under the watchful eye of Team Manager Lee Hogan had their first major hit-out over the weekend at Round 1 of the Victorian Junior MX Championships.

The event was held at the Korumburra MCC in Victoria's Gippsland Region in front of a decent sized crowd and under clear blue skies.

The premiere A grade 250cc class was a who's who of Australian Junior MX with current National Champion Cody Dyce along with Tasmania's hotshot Wade Kirkland along with local Victorian guns Taj Marshall and Callum Norton.

Race favourite Cody Dyce set a blistering pace but the surprise package of the day came from BCP Pro Circuit Honda rider Taj Marshall who was the only rider to really take it to the reigning champ and scored himself two solid second placings to Dyce in the final two motos of the day keeping within range until the chequered flag.

Race one saw a hyped up Taj Marshall go down hard while trying to reel in race leader Callum Norton but even with a 6th place finish in moto one combined with his two second placings he still found himself up on the podium overall with a solid third for the day.

"I was a bit disappointed with race one today as I knew I had the speed but it was those silly little mistakes that end in a crash that Lee (Hogan) and Timmy (Vare) have been working on over the christmas period to get rid of," said Marshall.

"But we rebounded really well for the last two and I was stoked with my concentration levels. The bike is working really well and I'm really looking forward to round 2 at Colac."

Taj Marshall's BCP Pro Circuit Honda team mate Jai Constantinou proved to be the dark horse on the day in the A grade 250 class with the rookie 250cc rider scoring a fourth in moto one and ending up with a solid 5th overall against a class field.

"Jai for me had one of the most impressive rides of the day," said Team Manager Lee Hogan. "I signed him as a development rider and really didn't expect this kind of pace and consistency from him until mid year so I'm stoked to see we have another 250cc contender on our hands."

Round 2 of the Victorian MX Championships next heads to the Colac MCC on May 2nd and 3rd.
