BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior Development Team rider and current National Junior Champion Taj Marshall has dominated proceedings for the second weekend in a row as he won all three motos contested over the weekend at the South Australian State MX Titles held in Port Augusta north of Adelaide.
With his starts once again on point the young Victorian lead for most of the day and made minimal mistakes on his way to a dominant victory.
“It’s been a good couple of weeks,” said Marshall.
“I’ve finally been able to get a good run going mid week with plenty of time on the bike and it feels great. My Eight11 prepped bike is working awesome as always.”
Marshall’s team mate Tom Bell finished a very impressive third place at Port Augusta scoring himself a fourth, a third, and a solid second place behind team mate Taj Marshall in the final moto of the day.
Anthony Atanasovski earned himself second overall on the BCP Pro Circuit Honda CRF150R ‘small wheel’ at the SA State Titles after a huge crash in practice almost put the hard charger out for the day.
“I took a big hit in practice, just getting on it too hard out of a slippery corner and it bit me,” said Anthony.
“I’ve only had two races on the 150R and I felt comfortable straight away. We had a win last weekend and a second this weekend which isn’t too bad! I’m looking forward to my next race and to keep on improving each time I ride.”
Training for the upcoming National Junior Motocross Championships will bump up a notch for Lee Hogan’s BCP Pro Circuit Honda riders with the week-long event less than two months away.
Taj Marshall and Trent Collins will hope to defend their number one and number two plates in the premier 250cc class against Australia’s best junior racers when in late September the event will be hosted by the Riverland Motorcycle Club in Renmark, South Australia.
