JAI Wedlock is buzzing with excitement ahead of MV’s Elite Rider Training Camp on September 21-23.
JAI Wedlock has had a pretty successful first year in senior competition during 2015.
He’s currently competing strongly in the Expert Class of the Victorian Off-Road Championships, and the Under 19s class in the Australian Off-Road Championships, as well as competed in the Enduro-X Series at the beginning of the year.
It hasn’t all been smooth sailing for Jai though, a wrist injury put some challenges in front of him.
“Due to a wrist injury I was unable to compete in the last four rounds of the AORC,” he says.
“I had to regain my strength in my wrist and hand which had me off the bike for six weeks. I’ve been training hard on and off the bike to be able to perform at my best in the last few rounds of the season.
Jai finished the AORC in sixth place overall in the Under 19s class and he’s currently third in the E2 (Expert 2) class at the VORC, as well as sitting in eighth outright.
“My goal this year was to win the Expert 2 class and finish in the top 10 in the VORC. I’m also looking forward to competing in my first ever Australian 4-Day Enduro,” Jai added.
With the MV Elite Rider Training Camp taking place next week, Jai is hoping that gaining further off-bike knowledge will push his results that bit higher.
“I’m looking forward to attending the camp to gain as much knowledge and guidance from all the coaches, especially in the areas of nutrition, personal fitness and how best to present myself to achieve my goals and to perform at my very best,” Jai continued.
“My plan for next season is to continue to ride at my best level and to compete in all rounds of the Australian Off-Road Championships and Victorian Off-Road Championships.”
MV’s Elite Rider Training Camp takes place in Melbourne next week from September 21-23.
