BCP Pro Circuit Honda ready for 2015 Title Opener
This weekend’s Round 1 of the 2015 Victorian Junior Motocross Championships will see the first contracted outing for the newly formed BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior Development Team. The event will be held at the Korumburra MCC in Victoria’s Gippsland region and will feature some of Australia’s highest profile junior riders.
Coming off two back to back wins on his Honda CRF 150R, team rider Morgan Fogarty will sit out round 1 after sustaining a broken leg recently in a practice mishap. Fogarty will be on hand race day to cheer on team-mates Taj Marshall who will go into the event one of the hot favourites in the premiere 250cc junior A grade category along with Jai Constantinou who is favoured to win on board his CRF 150R and also be competitive alongside his teammate in the 250cc class.
“It’s a bummer that Morgan hurt himself because he was on such a roll on the 150 and I was really hoping to turn the tables on him after we came first and second just a couple of weeks back,” said Jai Constantinou.
“So now I’m really looking forward to stepping up and getting the job done for the team and myself. Our bikes are going so well thanks to Tim Vare from Eight11 racing and that will make our jobs that little bit easier.”
“I’m stoked on so many different levels,” said Lee Hogan.“The riders have come such a long way both in their riding and also their development with testing the motorcycle and knowing what they want. I’m devastated for our in-form gun Morgan Fogarty who will sit out the first part of the year now with a broken leg after dominating every race that entered on the CRF150R but he will bounce back. Both Taj and Jai are ready to fight for championships this year and they have all the resources behind them to get the job done.”
Racing will be spread over the whole weekend with classes ranging from 6 year old 50cc to 15 year old 250cc.
