MXoN – The Rookie-WA’s Hard Working Legend-Kyle Webster

Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing rider KYLE WEBSTER is justifiably excited after being named as a member of the Australian team to contest the 2019 Motocross of Nations world teams championship being held at Assen, The Netherlands, on September 28/29.

Webster, 23, who recently finished second overall in the MX2 category of the MX Nationals Australian championship, will join Dean Ferris (KTM) and Mitch Evans (Honda) in the Australian team, which is this year sponsored by leading Australian online retailer, MXStore.com.au.

“I’m so excited to have been chosen to represent Australia,” said an excited Webster after being advised of his selection to the team by Motorcycling Australia officials. Getting an Australian team ride has been a lifetime dream of mine and I am stoked to now have the opportunity to represent Australia.”

Proudly donning the green and gold Australian team colours, the Dutch event will be Webster’s first-ever foray into the amazing spectacle that is a European-based world motocross championship event.

“I’ve never raced in Europe before; I’ve only been to an Indonesian GP round in 2017, but it was a complete mudder,” Webster reveals. “So I’m stoked to be alongside Dean and Mitch, as they both have a fair bit of experience in Europe and I will definitely be able to gain some knowledge from them and ways to approach the event and race weekend.”

As is typical of Dutch circuits, the Assen track, which is located within the famed Assen Moto GP road-race facility, will be a tough and challenging, deeply whooped sand lay-out, conditions which Webster revels in.

“I honestly don’t know much about the Assen track, only what I have seen on TV and online,” Webster explains. “But I’m pumped that it’s a sand pit and I can’t wait to see how I go against the other guys.”
With the MXoN just four weeks away, it’s all systems go for Webster and the Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing team to ensure no stone is left unturned to know they are fully prepared for the world championship event.

“Honestly, I have no idea of what to expect results-wise at Assen, but as long as I can do my best and do Australia proud, I will be happy with that,” says Webster.  The entire Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing team is behind me and I can’t wait to get there and have some good races and battles with the guys in the world championship.”

Meantime Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing team owner Mark Luksich says the team is thrilled by Webster’s selection to the MXStore.com.au sponsored Australian squad and his opportunity to race on the world stage.

“I haven’t had a rider in the green and gold since the days of Belly (Australian MX legend Glen Bell) back in the 1990s, so all of us on the Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing team are extremely proud,” Luksich enthuses. Being selected to represent your country has to be any rider’s ultimate goal, and we congratulate Kyle on his achievement. We can’t wait for this opportunity to support Kyle to ride for Australia and perform on the world stage.”

Immediately after the MXoN event, Webster will return home to join the Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing team as they set their sights on the 2019 Australian Supercross Championship, which kicks of in Brisbane (Qld) on October 10.

The Australian Supercross Championship then continues with further rounds at Gilman (SA) on October 19, Wollongong (NSW) on November 9 and Auckland (New Zealand) on November 16, before reaching its crescendo with the AUS-X Open event being staged at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne (Vic) on November 30.

WA’s Young Gun, Regan Duffy’s pre MXoN chat with 6PR’s Millsy & Basil

Many times over the past decade, Radio 6PR’s Millsy and Regan Duffy’s paths have crossed, usually over jokes at trophy presentations-some of which have been memorable to audience members-the WA Motocross Community.

Leading up to the MXoN we organised for a very chuffed Millsy to catch up with Duffy prior to heading overseas to the “Olympics of Motocross”.  Sadly before the interview could take place tragedy struck the WA motocross community with the passing of one of Regan’s childhood mates, Rhys Burnett.

Thank you Millsy, Basil and News Talk 6PR 882 for sensitively supporting our sport and the motocross community once again.

Take 5 minutes, have a read and then listen to the podcast interview (Courtesy of 6PR) -the strength and character of 17 year old champion, Regan Duffy, is to be admired.

“WA Motocross Champ continues on after friend’s death”

A WA Motocross rider is heading to Amsterdam to represent Australia at the World Championships next week, but it was only days ago he lost a fellow rider and good friend after a crash on the track.

West Australian teenager Regan Duffy will make his appearance on the world stage.

“It’s massive, it’s the Olympics of motocross and for me to get chosen at 17 to represent my country, it’s pretty crazy actually,” Duffy told 6PR Breakfast.

But it will be a bitter sweet journey for him after his childhood friend, Rhys “Roo” Burnett, died after an accident during a competition last weekend.

“He was always smiling, always joking and now I’m just going to continue on for Roo,” he told Steve and Baz.

WA State Champ Martin to Wild Card at OJC Round 5

The fifth round of the bLU cRU Oceania Junior Cup (OJC), to be held at Phillip Island on October 4-6, will once again field a Wild Card rider in eleven-year-old Jayden Martin. Motorcycling Australia is proud to continue its commitment to junior development with its second OJC Wild Card opportunity, thanks to the collaboration of Motorcycling Western Australia (MWA).

The OJC series has been instrumental in helping the new generations riders to make the next step into competing in road racing, but more importantly, helping them to hone their skills, both on and off the track.

Martin, who hails from Muchea in Western Australia is quite new the whole road racing side of things. For five years he has been racing around in the motocross scene, before trying his hand at Supermotard racing last year.

However, 2019 has been his introduction to road racing. In such a short amount of time spent on the tar, Martin has come on leaps and bounds. In fact, the speedy youngster has already locked up his first road racing championship over in the west, by winning the Banhams WA Junior Road Race State Championship.

The call up to come and race as a Wild Card in the OJC series was a huge surprise, according to Martin.

“I wasn’t expecting to get the Wild Card ride, that’s for sure,” explained Martin, who is really looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead.

“This year has been pretty surreal by being able to win the Banhams WA Junior Road Race State Championship. Now to be able to come over and race against the best riders in the OJC series and the best track in the country is pretty amazing to be honest. I can’t thank everyone involved enough for this fantastic opportunity,” he added.

Being Martin’s first national race start, he has expressed that he’s going to take the weekend as it comes for the experience and to simply have fun before he has a proper crack at joining the OJC for the 2020 season.

“I really can’t put too much pressure on myself,” said Martin. “Why I say that is because the weekend will be full of firsts for me. It will be the first-time racing at Phillip Island, racing against other competitors that I have never raced against. And obviously racing in the Oceania Junior Cup. I’m just really looking at the weekend as a fun and learning experience. In saying that, I would like to be able to finish inside the top ten in all of the three races,” finished Martin.

Motorcycling Australia’s Operations Director, Martin Port, is excited to see another rider benefit from the wildcard opportunity.

“The bLU cRU Oceania Junior Cup is dedicated to strengthening and building the motorcycling community here in Australia and across the Oceania region,” said Port.

“It’s fantastic to have Jayden coming over from Western Australia to race in the OJC round at Phillip Island. Its testament to MWA’s own commitment to junior road racing with the Banhams WA Junior Road Race State Championship. While Martin is quite new to the road racing side of things, you never know. He could cause an upset with some of the major players in the series,” added Port.

“I’m excited to get out there, represent my country and race the best in the world,” the 19-year-old said.

“I’m looking forward to everyone getting behind us and hopefully we can get a spot on the box because we’ve got a really strong team this year.”

“I’m super excited to be representing Australia at the Motocross of Nations this year in Assen,” the 29-year-old from Lismore said.

“I’m really looking forward to racing alongside Mitch Evans and Kyle Webster, so it will be great to catch up with the boys.”

While Webster, who was the runner up in the 2019 MX Nationals Motul MX2 class, was shocked when told he’ll be heading to the Netherlands.

“Honestly, I’m stoked. I didn’t really expect to be picked for the team, but I’m wrapped to be able to head over to Assen,” said the 23-year-old West Australian.

“It’s my first time heading over to the MXoN, so I’m not sure what to really expect.

“Being the biggest motocross event in the world, I just can’t wait to be a part of it. Without a doubt, it’s the biggest thing in my career for sure, so I’m really excited.

“It’s awesome to have both Dean [Ferris] and Mitch [Evans] as my teammates.”

Geoff Munro of MXstore, who carry Australia’s largest range of dirt bike gear, parts and accessories, said the company are delighted to be associated with Team Australia.

GPR Trucks sponsored rider, Kayden Minear, podiums at World Junior Motocross

Team Australia’s World Junior Motocross (WJMX) riders have proven themselves amongst the best in the world once again this year, competing in the prestigious FIM Junior Motocross World Championship in Pietramurata, Italy, last on July 13-14. The green and gold riders fared particularly well in the 65cc World MX Junior Cup, with KTM riders Ky Woods and Kayden Minear (GPR Trucks) finishing second and fourth respectively.

Boasting some of the world’s best junior motocross riders, the FIM Junior Motocross World Championship saw Aussies represented across all three classes (65, 85, and 125cc). Although they were unable to successfully defend Australia’s Team of Nations trophy won on home soil at Horsham in Victoria, the team that traveled to Italy acquitted themselves brilliantly, finishing ninth overall and representing their country proudly.

Team Australia Team Manager Mark Willingham was quick to praise the efforts of all the riders representing Australia in Italy. “Really happy with the effort from all the riders,” Willingham said. “Similar to some previous years our 65cc class riders were amazing, and then we see the strength of the European racing program really shine through in the 85 and 125 classes.

“From my perspective, Team Australia had one of the best set ups we’ve ever provided on site to ensure the riders had everything they needed. With our main section arranged under the Diga Racing truck we had a full catering service for our meals along with their experience and guidance. On top of this our Yamaha riders were provided services from Yamaha Europe’s official race trucks, which was a result of all the effort the Aussies arranged last year welcoming the European riders at Horsham.

“In the end Team Australia finished up 9th in the standings, and were the first team home that was unable to score points in all 3 classes.”

Ryder Kingsford (Yamaha) and Campbell Williams (KTM) also made it to the finals, finishing in 13th and 24th places in the 85cc class. Also representing Australia were Alex Larwood (Yamaha,125cc), and Blake Fox (KTM, 125cc).

Waters, Todd and Duffy crowned Champions at Coolum’s final round

Round 10, the final round of the 2019 Pirelli MX Nationals at Coolum saw DPH Husqvarna dominate proceedings with Todd Waters in THOR MX1 and Wilson Todd in Pirelli MX2 being crowned Champions at the conclusion of racing along with Raceline KTM Thor’s Regan Duffy taking out the Motul MXD series Championship.

Race report below

THOR MX1 saw DPH Husqvarna’s Todd Waters dominate round ten, taking out a perfect weekend winning Raceline Superpole and both MX1 moto’s en route to the 2019 championship #1 plate. Empire Kawasaki’s Dylan Long would ride to a season best second overall with great starts placing 3-2 moto scores on the day, as Penrite Honda’s Brett Metcalfe took third overall from 2-6 moto scores as a battle of inconsistency took place in the remaining top spots for MX1. Second place in the THOR MX1 championship, CDR Yamaha Monster Energy’s Luke Clout would struggle with 4-4 moto scores to finish off the podium on the round overall results. Raceline KTM Thor’s Hayden Mellross put in a spirited effort to maintain third in the Championship riding with a badly injured knee, after finishing thirteenth in moto one, a DNF from CDR Yamaha Monster Energy’s Kirk Gibbs then allowed Mellross to sit out moto two as he was enough points clear of Gibbs in the championship to forfeit the second moto.

PIRELLI MX2 saw DPH Husqvarna’s Wilson Todd check out from the field winning Moto one of the back to back moto’s. Serco Yamaha’s Nathan Crawford would charge through the field to win the second back to back moto, with WA’s Penrith Pirelli CRF Honda Racing’s Kyle Webster and Yamalube Yamaha’s Jay Wilson both placing consistent finishes in the sprint moto’s to be in contention for the round overall heading into moto three. Wilson Todd would lead early after the hole shot in moto three but eventually decided to play it safe as Kyle Webster showed great speed winning moto three with Jay Wilson finishing in second. Webster would win the overall from Wilson Todd second and Jay Wilson third. In the Championship, Wilson Todd would reclaim his #1 plate from Webster in second and Jay Wilson finishing the year third.

MOTUL MXD would provide less drama than yesterday’s round nine as WA’s Raceline KTM THOR’s Regan Duffy would lead almost every lap of both moto’s on his way to the overall win and the Championship #1 plate. WBR Bulk Nutrients Yamaha’s Maximus Purvis would challenge Duffy in second place for both moto’s however he did not have the speed to match his performances from yesterday. Privateer Jai Walker would land his first career overall podium in third. In the Motul MXD Championship it was Regan Duffy winning the title, from Max Purvis and Penrith Pirelli CRF Honda Racing’s Rhys Budd in third.

The Yamaha Rising Star Rookies class saw Yamaha’s Alex Larwood dominate the weekends races and take out the Championship. Ricky Chalmers and Cobie Bourke would finish out round ten second and third overall, while the Championship podium would see Larwood first, Brad West second and Cameron Torpy third.

The Yamaha 125cc Gold Cup saw WA’s Luke Davis win the round, followed by Lachlan Wilson and Yamaha’s Cameron Taylor. In the series Championship, Cameron Taylor would again win the series Nicholas Murray and Lachlan Wilson finishing second and third.

The Yamaha 65 Cup exhibited the next generation of Australasian Motocross talent with NZ rider Levi Townley taking the win from Marcus Nowland and Lachie McLaren rounding out the podium.
