Yamaha riders turned in podium filled performances at the King of MX event over the weekend, highlighted by the Kingsford family who took home their fare share of silverware from the Nowra Motorsport complex.
The event is seen as the New South Wales Motocross Championships and after a multi round qualifying system, the top competitors in each respective class fight it out for the honour of the ‰ÛÏKing of MX‰Ûª crown in a huge finale to the series.
Ryder Kingsford led the way for the GYTR Yamaha Junior Racing Team taking a win in the 12-13 years 85cc class on his YZ85. Kingsford finished with 1-1-2 results to claim the win on the day and the event provided the perfect lead up for the 13 year old racer, whose next challenge is the World Junior Motocross Championships in Italy in July.
He also backed that up with a third place finish on his YZ125 in the 13-14 years age group. Kingsford has really taken a liking to his 125 and as he grows in statue physically, he also grows in stature emotionally on the large capacity bike. He finished with 2-6-1 results over the weekend and if not for a fall while leading race two, the overall result may well have been much different.
‰ÛÏThings went pretty well over the weekend and five out of the six races I did were good. It was just that one crash on the 125 that let me down a little,‰Û
