BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior Development rider Taj Marshall has continued his win streak over the weekend at the Rosebud round of the Gippsland Centre Motocross Championships. This latest win making it three wins in a row for the reigning National Junior Motocross Champion. With two wins and a second place finish on the notoriously sandy circuit it was only his team mate Tom Bell who was able to take a race win off him in race two on the day.
“I’m really happy to keep the ball rolling and keep this streak alive going into the Aussie Juniors,” said Marshall.
“Confidence is a crazy thing, and we just need to keep doing what we’ve been doing.”
Second place on the day behind Marshall in the A grade 250cc class was his BCP Pro Circuit Honda team mate Tom Bell.
“It feels great to be up there battling with my team mate Taj,” said Bell.
“We had some great battles and to get a race win against some gun riders is just awesome. I feel right at home in the sand and my training has been really paying off lately.”
The Bell family receives the marathon award for the weekend as they packed up their vehicle following the Rosebud event and did the solid eight hour drive to Murray Bridge in South Australia where Tom would participate in the SA state title round the following day.
Still riding his wave of confidence from the day before Tom Bell was in a league of his own taking two huge wins in the A grade 250cc junior class. The only downfall for the day was some track markers getting caught in Bell’s rear wheel while he was leading moto two. After stopping to pull the bunting out Bell remounted and climbed back up to fourth place in the race.
New CRF150R recruit Anthony Atanasovski continued his run of good results by finishing second place on Saturday at the South Australian State Championships and then followed it up the next day winning all three motos at Swan Hill on his small wheel CRF150R Honda.
Also over the weekend, Trent Collins made the trip over to Tahiti and dominated his class winning all three motos in the stifling heat for Honda.
Team manager Lee Hogan is happy with the team’s progress and momentum.
“It’s great to see the whole team firing at the same time,” said Hogan.
“The bikes are working amazing and all the riders are fit and healthy. It’s always good to see the look on their faces when they get a good result because each and every one of them including their families put so much into it.”
The BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior team riders will now put their focus on the upcoming National Junior Motocross Championships which will be held at the Riverland Motocross Club in Renmark, SA from September 24th to the 30th.
