Aussie Jay Wilson gets fired up for AX!

UNITED KINGDOM. There’s a new Aussie hot-shot on the block for the 2017 Arenacross Tour, namely twenty-two-year-old Jay Wilson who has previously represented Australia at the MXoN.

Jay will ride with the JK Yamaha team, alongside American Collin Jurin, who we lost to injury at Sheffield earlier this year. Will be fantastic to have Collin back in the arena and we’ll bring you more news of him soon.

Jay started riding when he was just three years’ old on a PW50. His dad was into bikes and so Jay did quite a bit of racing throughout his younger years.

He has a number of antipodean championship first places under his belt, and it’s a fair bet that he’ll be out to add one or two European scalps to his racing belt.

So, who is Jay Wilson?

2009; 1st 85cc FIM World Junior Championship

2013; 1st Under 19s Australian Supercross Championship

1st Pro Lites NZ Supercross Championship

2014; 1st Pro Lites NZ Supercross Championship

2015; 1st MX2 Australian Motocross Nationals, 1st MX2 New Zealand Motocross Championship. Selected To represent Australia at MXoN

2016; 6th MX1 Australian Motocross Nationals, 7th SX1 Australian Supercross Championship

He races full-time ‘down-under’ in the disciplines of motocross and supercross, but he has NEVER raced in the UK – until now ….
