BCP Honda ‘Off Road’ Team rider Kyron Bacon continued his terrific run of results over the weekend as he took victory in the ‘Hook Creek 100’ Off Road event in North West Tasmania. The win adds to Bacon’s confidence as Round 2 of both the TERC and AORC ‘Off Road’ Championships head closer in coming weeks.
“It was good to get another win under our belt on this new bike,” said Bacon.
“We have tested some new parts including a Vortex ignition and some thinner ODI grips and the bike is just getting better and better each time I ride it. I can’t wait to head over to Victoria for Round 2 of the AORC in a few weeks.”
BCP Honda team manager Lee Hogan donned his boots and lined up behind a starting gate for the first time in 15 years over the weekend for the annual running of the Nunawading ‘Good Friday Appeal’ race day. The event earned over $14,000 for charity and also featured star Honda MX racer Brett Metcalfe who attended on the day, winning the Pro class.
Hogan went on to win both motos of the Vet class while also winning the coaches ‘Sprint Lap’ challenge.
“It was all just a bit of fun and for a good cause,” said Hogan.
“It actually felt pretty cool to line up behind starting gates for the first time in so long and brought back a lot of good memories.”
It is a hectic month for the team coming up with the BCP Pro Circuit Development Junior MX Team having their first championship event of the year this weekend at the Shipwreck Coast MCC for Round One of the Vic Junior MX Titles, while the BCP Honda ‘Off Road’ Team will head over to Victoria later in the month for the next round of the Australian Off Road Championships.
