Kyron Bacon has emerged as a young rising star in the sport of Off Road racing here in Australia. The kid from Burnie in Tasmania has been riding the wheels off his BCP Honda CRF150R in the AORC (Australian Off-Road Championships) and after four rounds he currently sits in equal first place in the competitive J2 class.
“We had a solid weekend just gone up in Queensland for Rounds 3 and 4,” said Bacon.
“I was stoked to take the win on Saturday which put me as outright leader in my class, but a couple of silly mistakes on Sunday dropped me back to second place on the day and equal first in the championship chase.”
“The bike is working great and my riding is improving all the time.”
Bacon’s team mate in the Off-Road based BCP Honda Team Baylee Davies made some positive improvements up in Queensland finishing 5th both days on his CRF250R against the best off road riders in the country.
In Murray Bridge, South Australia Travis Edwards competed in Round Two of the SA Junior MX Titles over the weekend on board his BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior Development Team CRF250R.
After battling closely with his SA arch rival Thomas Larwood throughout the day Edwards finished a close second place overall and now sits second place in the state championship after two rounds, just a couple of points off the lead.
“It was a tough day for us here today,” said Edwards.
“I normally go well at this track but a few mistakes cost me. I need to be more aggressive when passing for the lead but I’m working on that. The bike is working awesome thanks to Tim Vare from Eight11 Racing. I know what I need to do and I’ll keep chipping away.”
The next round of the South Australian Titles will be held on the 17th and 18th June at Gillman.
