Fresh from competing in the 2017 Shipwreck Coast 2-Day Open at Warrnambool, Vic, last weekend, Rosebud‰Ûªs Chandler Burns is on track to put his good form to the test in New Zealand when he competes in the 2017 New Zealand Motocross Grand Prix at Woodville on January 28-29

The 16-year-old will join other top Victorian riders such as Jed Beaton, Cody Dyce, Bailey Malkiewicz, and Mason Semmens who will also be competing at Woodville next weekend.

Burns, impressively finished second in the A-Lites class in his first senior motocross competition last weekend. ‰ÛÏIt was a good weekend for me. It was going to be real test for me as it was my first senior race and I was racing in A Grade,‰Û
Chandler has a big year ahead of him as he plans to compete in all four rounds of the Victorian Senior Motocross Championships, where he hopes to finish in the top 5 in the A Lites class; aims to finish in the top 15 in the MXD class at the 2017 Australian MX Nationals, and would like to finish third in A Grade in the 2017 Shell Advance Gippsland Motocross Series.

Chandler is also heading overseas for the first time to compete in one of New Zealand‰Ûªs top events. Chandler said he was invited by the host club ‰ÛÒ the Manawatu Orion Motorcycle Club on NZ‰Ûªs North Island - and was assisted by the Jillings Family arranging a bike to race he is also supported by Davey Motorsport KTM Team in Australia.

He‰Ûªll be competing in the Junior 14 to 16-years 250cc 4-stroke class on January 28, and then in the Senior MX2 Championship Class on Sunday, January 29.

‰ÛÏI can‰Ûªt wait. It‰Ûªs going to be a real test for me as it is my first time travelling to another country all on my own. I‰Ûªm also really excited as there will be at least a dozen top Australian riders taking it to the Kiwis,‰Û
