WBR Bulk Nutrients Yamaha racers, Bailey Malkiewicz and Hugh McKay have sky rocketed to the top of the MXD (under19) points chase after an eventful weekend of racing at rounds seven and eight of the Pirelli MX Nationals, held at the MX Ranch circuit.
Both riders put in gritty and determined efforts over the weekend that saw the MXD points get shaken up as the MX Ranch circuit threw up plenty of close racing with the young chargers putting on a great spectacle.
Malkiewicz will take the leaders red plate into round nine of the championship after claiming victory for round seven as he dominated proceedings taking both race victories. Malkiewicz was back to his best after a tough day at round six at Conondale and was excited to get himself right back into championship contention.
He then finished in fourth place for round eight with 8-1 results in the two back to back races on Sunday afternoon. A poor start in the first back to back left him well done the field and scrambling to pass as many riders as possible but again he showed his mental resilience to answer back with another race win in the final MXD event of the weekend.
Riley Dukes won the round ahead of Jye Dickson and a very impressive Jayce Cosford.
