KTM in the titles at Sunshine States
The Orange team came away with fistfuls of the gold as Queensland‰Ûªs famous Shell Sunshine State Motocross Championship concluded at the Echo Valley circuit in Toowoomba last weekend, taking away championships in junior, senior and female categories.

The Shell Sunshine State series is well known as a breeding ground for emerging talent, and this year‰Ûªs five-round affair was no different.

Australian 65cc champion and KTM Factory Junior Team rider Noah Smerdon kicked off the rampage on Saturday, winning the 65cc 10-11 years category ahead of Ryan Alexanderson from the Motorex-KTM Junior Development Team, while Wayne Leonard KTM racer Deegan Mancinelli was third.

Smerdon climbed the podium a second time, winning the 85cc 9-11 years class after a protracted battle with Mancinelli, while Jack Mather was third.

In the 7-9 years 65cc category, Jett Allsop from the Motorex KTM Junior Development Team triumphed, while the Mini Lites class for 12-13 year-olds saw Jai Walker (Pro Motorcycles Sunshine Coast) victorious.

Morrissey came out well on top in the Senior 125-150cc 2-stroke class, leading home Brad Polsoni from, Team Moto Virginia and Mick MacDermid.

In the Women‰Ûªs category, KTM girls Tamara Gray (North Coast KTM) and Sarah Guthrie (QB4 Toowoomba) traded wins before Gray eventually triumphed over Guthrie by 18 points.
