Baylee Davies and Kyron Bacon have won their respective classes over the weekend at Round 2 of the TERC (Tasmanian Off Road Championships).
The BCP Honda ‘Off Road’ Team riders continued a string of good results that included young gun Kyron Bacon steering his Honda CRF150R to a dominating win on Saturday, and in doing so extending his lead in the title chase after his round one win earlier in the year.
“We had another solid day on the 150 getting the win, but I was so pumped to get third on the big CRF250R as well,” said Bacon.
“It was my first proper ride on the bike and I was sort of flapping off the back a bit. I’m only 50kg so I’m going to start to eat a bit more and hopefully that helps,” Bacon joked after the race.
Bacon’s team-mate and multi time state champion Baylee Davies did likewise on Sunday wrapping up the 250cc class and the open class categories.
“If feels good to have a solid weekend here in Tasmania,” said Baylee Davies.
“We also finished second in the feature race Sunday afternoon which has given me the overall lead in the Ironman Championship.”
“I’m happy with my riding and my bikes are going really well. I’m looking forward to bringing this momentum into the AORC rounds where we’ll be aiming for that podium on the BCP CRF250R.”
With two rounds of the TERC in the books there’s still plenty more action remaining. Team manager Lee Hogan is proud of the team’s efforts so far in 2017.
“Both Kyron and Baylee are doing a fantastic job,” said Hogan.
“Baylee Davies is a bit of an icon in the Tasmanian MX and Off Road scene and on a good day can be right up there near the top three in the country. Kyron Bacon has been a revelation this year for us on his CRF150R and is grabbing everyone’s attention on the national circuit.”
