It was a weekend to remember for the BCP Honda crew as their riders from both Motocross and Off-Road had an extremely successful weekend. The record-breaking weekend included four separate wins in three states, and a champion crowned along the way.
The weekend started off on Saturday with BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior Development rider Tanesha Harnett winning the final round of the Women’s Victorian Junior State MX Titles at Wonthaggi and in doing so, wrapping up the Championship for 2017.
“I’m so over the moon to get this one,” said Harnett.
“I came into the final round just one point behind but we got the job done today. The bike was working awesome and it was great to work closely with Lee (Hogan) on the day. We put a plan together for all three races and it came together so well. To wrap up the NSW state title a couple of weeks back was really nice but this one is special. It came right down to the wire.”
Also on the Saturday saw Tanesha’s BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior Development team-mate Travis Edwards score himself a well earned win at the penultimate round of the South Australian State MX Titles.
“It feels good to get this win today and to now take it down to the wire for the state championship at the final round,” said Edwards.
Young gun BCP Honda ‘Off Road’ rider Kyron Bacon scored a solid win on his BCP Honda CRF150R up in Kyogle, NSW for Round 9 of the Australian Off-Road Championships. The young Tasmanian backed it up the following day at Round 10 with another win in the J2 class and has now put himself in a terrific spot to potentially wrap up the championship when it concludes in Victoria. Bacon has been a revelation this year on board the CRF150R four stroke and has a big future in the sport of Off Road.
“We’ve had a solid season so far but now it all comes down to the final round,” said Kyron Bacon.
“We’ll keep putting in the work and do the best we can to come out on top in Victoria.”
Rhys Budd, Travis Edwards and Royce Anell all participated in the final round of the Victorian Junior MX Titles on Sunday in the A grade 250cc class, performing exceptionally well.
Rhys Budd would eventually round out the day up on the podium in third place after a couple of minor struggles in moto two, while both Edwards and Anell would finish a season best fourth and fifth place respectively on the day, finding form at the right time of the year.
“It’s a bit of a bummer when you see your team mates doing really well and you’re struggling to find form,” said Royce Anell.
“But the last three race meetings have gone really well with a win at the Gippsland Centre Round at Outrim and now a top 5 at the state titles. My confidence is up and every time I ride I’m feeling better and better.”
