Luke Davis Set For A Full Time Return To Racing In 2014

Luke Davis is a name that has been missing from the national circuit for the past couple of years.

A talented rider originally from Corryong, Victoria, but spending most of his live living in New South Wales, Davis has spent the past couple of years living in Western Australia to help support his family, a move that limited his ability to ride the national circuit full time.

For 2014 Davis is planning on returning to the MX Nationals racing scene full time as a privateer after recently moving back to Sydney. Like most riders looking to establish himself at the top level, the 23 year old will be heading into next year as a full privateer, working during the week with limited support.

"I am originally from down near Albury Wodonga but I moved to Western Australia due to family troubles and to help support them." Davis explained. "Myself and my Father went to W.A to work in the mines till they got settled again and now I have come back to chase my dream really.

"I trained hard over there and learnt a lot so now I believe I am physically and mentally prepared for 2014," he added.

"For 2014 I plan to run all nationals in the pro open class and state titles if budget allows me. I am currently working five to six days a week for a earthmoving company in Sydney's south west. They have been great and understand my racing and training needs and are very good to me.

"As for a bike for next season I have just got conformation that I will be aboard a 2014 Yamaha YZ450F, I literately just got the conformation!" Davis stated.

"I do have a couple of sponsors on board so far OxyFresh Water and Steve Cramer who have supported me this year have just let me know that they will be back on board to help me out again and Raleri Goggles have just stepped in to help me out which I am very grateful for. I am certainly still searching for more support though."

The move back to Sydney Davis was a calculated move for Davis, with the majority of races being held on the east coast of Australia he is hopeful that his central location to most rounds will help save with travel expenses as he takes aim at the top ten in the MX1 class.

"One of the main reasons I have moved to Sydney is it is a central location for all nationals and hopefully works out a little bit cheaper to make my way to most the rounds.

"My aim for the season is to stay consistent all and finish in the top 8 each race and hopefully breaking through the top five in many rounds. "I'm sure the season will be good I can't wait for it and let my results speak for them selves hopefully find a ride for supercross!" Davis concluded.
