The off-road racing world was awaiting the moment when Kyron Bacon’s international potential would shine through, and it happened over the weekend at the EnduroGP of Portugal.

After gaining valuable experience in his debut Enduro GP event the previous weekend, it was time for Kyron Bacon to show his mettle, and that’s precisely what he did. Competing in the Junior division (Under 23), Bacon made a remarkable impression by securing his first special test win while finishing sixth overall for the day. His final result could have been even better, but a one-minute penalty during the race shuffled his position.

Sunday saw Bacon launching a determined assault, earning a second-place finish in the EJ class. Additionally, he clinched the victory in the E1 (250cc) division, capping off a highly successful campaign in Portugal. Collaborating with the Johansson MPE Team and riding a WR250F, Bacon tackled the dusty Portuguese terrain with remarkable skill and determination.

“The weekend went well, and it was satisfying to achieve a couple of goals for this trip. I aimed to win a test and secure a round victory after last weekend’s round, and I managed to accomplish that, which was fantastic,” Bacon expressed.

He also commended the support and assistance he received from everyone involved during his time in Europe. The trip was undoubtedly a fruitful experience for Bacon as he prepares to return to his regular duties this weekend when the AORC Championship recommences in Dungog, New South Wales.
