TINAMBA’s Cody Dyce won not one, but two Victorian titles, at the thrilling final round of the 2015 Victorian Junior Motocross Championships at Newborough’s Blue Rock Motorcycle Club last weekend, August 1-2.
Cody emphatically won the 250cc A Grade Open class by 23-points over Wade Kirkland and the 125cc A Grade Open class by 27-points. Cody was ecstatic to win two titles at Blue Rock over the weekend, successfully defending both classes that he won last year.
Cody had to contend with the mud on Saturday in the 125cc A Grade Open but wasn’t fazed by it. “The track was alright. It wasn’t too bad but it was really hard to pass other riders. Getting a good start was the key,” Cody said.
“In my first race on Saturday, I got the holeshot and was leading and had a bit of a crash and I think I was in second-place but I battled through the mud and got the moto win in that one,” Cody added.
“In the second race I was winning three-laps in and I had a bit of a crash again, Callum Norton got around me, and we battled for a couple of laps. He made a little mistake and I got in front of him and just tried to put in some fast-laps and pulled away from him,” he said.
Cody enjoyed racing against Callum all season. “It was good. It was challenging for us both all season,” he added.
Track conditions improved remarkably on Sunday when Cody competed in the 250cc A Grade Open class. “The club worked pretty hard overnight to put the track back together. It formed some pretty deep ruts,” Cody said.
“In the first race, I didn’t get a good start and Wade got in front of me. We were battling for about half the moto, and he made a little mistake in one of the corners, and we drag-raced up the hill, and I pulled passed him and just tried to pull in front of him and ride my own race,” Cody added.
“I got the holeshot in the last two races, and just set down some fast laps, and got into a rhythm and it got going from there,” Cody, who won all three of his 250cc A Grade races, said.
Cody would like to thank Cameron Taylor, Stephen Powell, Mick Sinclair, Fox, Shift, Yamaha Australia, Ray Howard, everyone who helps out in the Yamaha Junior Racing Australia Team, and his parents for helping him this year.
Cody is very happy that he could finish off his Victorian motocross season on a high. “I’ll keep going forward and focus on the Aussie titles now,” Cody added. “I’m hoping to successfully defend my 125cc title and win a 250cc title as well,” he said.
