Lyndon Snodgrass sits in equal first place in the Outright Junior class. Mitch Brierley finished J2 class in 1st place at round 1 and Grace Rowe and Josh Brierley each finished on the podium over the days of racing as well.
Kawasaki's Lyndon Snodgrass made his intentions crystal clear at the first two rounds of the AORC promptly winning the J4 class in Saturday's round one and also taking with him the #1 position on the Outright Junior leader-board. Lyndon finished Sunday's round two in a very close 2nd place to sit equal 1st on the overall Junior class leader-board (& J4 class).
A happy Lyndon Snodgrass say's, " I couldn't be happier with my start to the championship. My KX250F performed brilliantly both days, and the Pirelli tyres were awesome in the dry, rocky conditions".
"It was great to catch up with the other fellow Kawasaki KX Junior Squad riders and it was awesome to meet Glenn MacDonald from Kawasaki Motors who came to check on the team. A huge thank you to my sponsors, Kawasaki Motors Australia, Hands-On Kawasaki, Pirelli, Motorex, RK, Power Plus Fuel, Fly, M2R, AA Asphalt."
Reigning Australian Junior Off Road Champion, Mitch Brierley was in fine form in Buladelah. The 12 year old J2 rider won his class in Saturday's round one on board his Kawasaki KX85. A small get-off in Sunday's round two cost Mitch the opportunity to grab back to back round wins however he still finished on the podium in 3rd place. Mitch's NSW Off-Roadseries results for the round (which was run in conjunction with the National series at Buladelah) were 1-2 for the two rounds.
Mitch Brierley say's, "A lot of hard work during the off season has paid off. I felt good out there and it was a great start to the series. The 2014 KX85 ran without a hiccup as always. I think the first outing for the KX Junior squad at the off-roads was very successful for all. I look forward to helping Kawasaki Team Green Australia KX Junior squad with some great results for the rest of the year".
Josh Brierley got his 2014 racing campaign off to a brilliant start at Buladelah riding his KX85 to the podium in both rounds in the J2 class. Josh took 3rd place in Saturday's round one then stepped it up a notch to take 2nd place on Sunday. Josh's State series results included a round win for round two and 2nd place in round one.
Josh Brierley say's, ”It was a definitely a good start to the series for me and the whole Kawasaki squad. It was pretty rough out there but the Teknik Motorsport tuned suspension gave my KX85 a great chance to excel".
Grace Rowe flew the flag proudly for the Kawasaki KX Junior Squad in the Junior Girls class. After jostling it out for 2nd place for the majority of Saturday's round one on her KX85, Grace eventually came home with a podium finish in 3rd place. In Sunday's round two, Grace looked to have 2nd place in the bag until a crash on the last lap lost her precious time while she got herself going again. She had to settle for 4th place which was a great effort considering she was competing against girls on board 250s.
Grace was happy with her start to the season, saying, " I had a really great time with the team. It was an incredible time away and I loved every minute of it. I feel so grateful for all of the support I receive and it was such an honour to stand on the podium holding the trophy."
