BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior Development rider Rhys Budd has dominated proceedings at the recent Coffs Harbour Stadium Motocross event over the weekend.
In close to 40 degree heat Budd won all three motos contested on the day in convincing style on board his Eight11 prepped BCP Honda CRF250R against some of his toughest competition.
The annual Coffs Harbour race day is an important event on the calendar with the likes of Dean Ferris, Kade Mosig and Kyle Webster competing in the senior ranks in hope of getting their season off to a good start.
"It was an important race for me to start the season off well," said Budd.
"My bike worked awesome and my training has been paying off to be able to race all day in 40 degrees and keep pushing hard. I'm looking forward to the season properly kicking off for us come March."
In the short period of time that Rhys Budd has been on the Honda machine he seems to have clicked well with the bike and the team, and seems to be on track for a solid year. Team Manager Lee Hogan is happy with the progress so far. "I'm really happy with this win for Rhys, but more-so I'm just so impressed with this kids work ethic," said Hogan.
"There's some seniors out there that could take a leaf out of his book when it comes to putting in and making sacrifices. He's a pleasure to work with and I'm stoked to see the work paying off for him. We are fortunate to have four great kids on the team for 2017 and each of them are coming along really well development wise. I can't wait to get them all together for our first championship race come March," concluded Hogan.
The BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior Development team riders including Rhys Budd, Travis Edwards, Royce Anell and Tanesha Harnett will meet in Victoria next week for the BCP January 3 Day Boot Camp where riders will be put through their paces on three different tracks.
