The ultra-successful Yamaha Junior Racing program is set to continue in 2014 with a list of established junior stars and a few new names into the mix to form a potent line up for the new season.
Yamaha Junior Racing is the nation-wide development program that supports and nurtures up and coming junior motocross riders. Each state has its own team with a state manager in place to ensure the riders are surrounded by the right people and getting good advice both on and off the track.
In 2013, YJR took out two national junior championships, countless state and regional series wins and continued to be at the coal face of junior motocross development in Australia.
2014 will see 11 riders in five states, racing on Yamaha‰Ûªs range of motocross weapons from the YZ85cc small wheel to the all-new YZ250F.
In South Australia, ex pro racer and Y-Aim agent Shane Metcalfe will manager Nick Day (15 years), Thomas Larwood (12years) and Alex Larwood (10years). All three riders won a SA junior MX Championship in 2013 and will be out to add to that list in 2014.
Cameron Taylor will oversee the Victorian squad of Angus Gelly (15years) and Cody Dyce(13years). Dyce was the runner up at the Australian Junior Nationals in the 12-14 years 85cc and will make the step up to the bigger bikes in 2014 while Gelly is the new face added to the team and is excited to be part of YJR.
