Max Whale Acclaimed As Junior Dirt Track Rider of the Year at Motorcycling QLD Awards Night

KX Junior Squad Member, Max Whale has received the Motorcycling Queensland Junior Dirt Track Rider award for the second year in a row.

In addition to this stellar achievement, the fifteen year old Queenslander was nominated for the International Junior Rider of the year award.

“I was looking forward to the Junior Challenge and was running a solid second. I began gaining ground on the leader when I got out of shape and hit the wall, going down hard and injuring my arm. Lucky it was the last race of 2016 for us and I've got 6 weeks to get well for the Troy Bayliss Classic,” Max commented.

Max now begins his road to recovery and training for the Troy Bayliss Classic which is due to take place at the Taree Motorcycle Club on 21st January.
