BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior Development Team rider Travis Edwards has taken out the final round of the South Australian Junior MX Titles over the weekend. And after winning the final two rounds of the series came to within two points of taking out the A grade 250cc Championship for 2017.
The Honda rider ended up winning three of the five rounds throughout the year giving him second place in the title chase.
“We gave it our best shot,” said Edwards.
“I’m stoked to have won the last two rounds in a row and feel really confident now going into the National Junior Titles. My Honda 250 has been awesome this year and now the total focus can shift to our Aussie Title preparation.”
Edwards has found some late season form that has seen him not only winning races in his home state of South Australia but also finishing right up near the head of the pack against the best juniors in the country recently at Wonthaggi, Victoria.
“I’ve been so impressed with Travis’s speed and technique this year,” said team manager Lee Hogan.
“His biggest issue has been his self belief, but he has come ahead in leaps and bounds lately. It’s been great to see him win his last two rounds of the SA titles and carry that momentum into the Aussies now.”
With the Junior Nationals in Horsham just four weeks away Travis Edwards along with his team-mates Rhys Budd, Royce Anell and Tanesha Harnett will aim to peak at the right time and perform well under the pressure of the big stage. The National Junior titles are held over a full week and is the ultimate test of rider and machine.
