SAYJR pile up the podiums in Renmark

Posted:

Last weekend saw the Renmark Motocross track host round two of the South Australian Motocross Championships held under perfect weather conditions.

With the Junior Nationals to be held on the same track later in the year, a lot of interstate competition made the journey across to SA which was very exciting for the three South Australian Yamaha Junior Racing Team (SAYJR) young guns. Coming off round one under a month ago, the boys were all revved up and excited to see how they stacked up against some of the fastest kid in the country.

Taj Gow Smith kicked things off in the 9-11years 85cc class, grabbing the holeshot in moto one and leading until a small mistake seen Taj drop back to 2nd place where he would finish. Taj had great starts in all his moto's and finished with 2-2-2 results for 2nd overall on his YZ85 machine. On his 65 he took 1-2-1 results to take the overall win for the day. His hard work seen him extend his points lead on his fellow SA competitors.

"I‰Ûªm stoked to get the win today on my 65 and have some good battles on my 85. The track was awesome and my bikes were so good plus it was a good chance to have a race on the junior nationals track,‰Û
Taj Gow Smith in action.
Thomas Larwood came to Renmark with some top interstate riders to battle with. Thomas got off to a bad start in moto one on his YZ125 and struggled to slice through the pack. The next two motos seen better starts and much better results from Thomas. His riding all came together to be the first SA rider home. He landed 11-5-5 results for 7th overall. Then on his YZ250F Thomas rode well but once again struggled a little with his starts, he took 7-5-6 moto results to take 6th overall.

‰ÛÏI was very nervous coming into the weekend, but I knew I could be up front. My starts just weren't happening this weekend but I'll be working hard to fix that before the next race. It was great to race on Sunday on the rough track,‰Û

The next round will be held at Port Augusta Motocross track on the 23/24 July.
