Local Minister Impressed as 13 Australian MX Champions Crowned at Horsham
Thousands of riders and their families descended on the rural city of Horsham, Victoria last week to take part in the 39th annual Australian Junior Motorcross Championships.

This year saw almost 350 riders line up to do battle at the Horsham Motocross Arena and only 13 go home with a coveted national Australian motocross title.

Minister for Sport and Recreation, Hugh Delahunty was at the track during the event and said it was great to see a national championship of this calibre in his local electorate.

‰ÛÏThis is where it starts, junior athletes coming together to compete at a national level and prepare themselves to become champions ‰ÛÒ right here at the Dooen racetrack in Horsham.‰Û

Motorcycling Australia CEO, David White said junior motocross continues to go from strength to strength in Australia and the junior nationals would continue to provide an annual showcase of Australia‰Ûªs talent in the motocross discipline.

As the dust settled over the Horsham Motocross arena on Friday afternoon, parent‰Ûªs loaded their kid‰Ûªs bikes onto trailers, bound for home, some as far away as Western Australia. Race officials finalised the overall results, club volunteers began taking down signage that prominently announced KTM as new sponsors and the kids, went back to being kids and played while the sun still shone on an amazing spring day.
