A full team lineup for the BCP Pro Circuit Honda junior development squad will take to the start gates this weekend at the Warrnambool Round 2 of the Vic Junior MX Titles.
New Zealand rider Trent Collins makes his Aussie debut this weekend under the watchful eye of team manager Lee Hogan.
Collin's last visit to Australia was for the 2015 National Junior Motocross Championships in Bunbury WA where he finished a solid second place in the premiere 250cc class for the BCP Honda squad, finishing only behind his team mate Taj Marshall. The two riders will line up once agin this weekend for the first time since Bunbury last year.
"I've been fortunate enough to keep racing our New Zealand National series right through the Christmas break and it's been a really positive period since I returned from Australia last October," Collins said.
"We've got about a five race win streak going in the juniors and I was really happy to finish in the top 5 a couple of times in the MX2 class against the seniors. My bike here in Australia is so good and I just love riding it! I'll be racing on tracks that I've never even seen before so I'll have to be really on the ball learning all the lines and passing opportunities but I'm keen to take on the challenge," he concluded.
The team consisting of National Junior Champion Taj Marshall and his team mates Collins and Tom Bell will aim this weekend to feature prominantly on the podium as the title chase reaches it's half way point.
