IN its last round of the season in the 2012 Victorian Junior Motocross Championships, the premier 2-stroke class will definitely be the one to watch.
The KTM 150s will finish off its domination by putting in one of the closest finishes since the year Kade Mosig and Brent Keep went into their final round tied on equal points.
This time Jeremy Tyndall and Jesse McNally come into the final round with Jesse trailing by one point. KTM Motorex rider Wayde Carter will return from injury and Iím tipping will clean-sweep the races, making the racing between Jeremy and Jesse even closer. No tips for the win here.
Tassie Devil rider Brodie Ellis leads the 65cc class. With Mitchell Hopkins-Talty and Mason Semen both close enough to win the coveted No.1 plate, this will be the first time a non-Western Region rider will have not won the class since Noah built the ark. For my prediction: Kody Meulenmeesters will take the LEM Racing team to its first victory in the 65cc class.
The 85 SW A class will provide some of the closest races with Callum Norton, Taj Marshall and Cody Dice. All have put in some awesome racing this year and wonít let the crowd down by fighting to the end. Callum should take out the class, but not easily.
JBS Motorsports rider Jesse McNally, also riding in the 85 BW A class needs to finish well in his first race to take the series win. Same with Jesseís fellow team rider Emma Milesevic, who will win her first Victorian No. 1 plate by riding smart and taking out the Snapes Logistics Girls Class. Sarah Stubbs will be aiming to get back onto the podium after a round on her home track at Outtrim, where nothing went right.
The 2012 Series standouts need of a mention: Hunter Rich, Tyran Tomich, Liam Andrews, Ebony Harris, Morgan Fogarty, Josh Spiteri,Jake Hodgkinson, Luke Polomka, Luke Norris, Max Closter, Bradley Kain, Jayden Evans. Nathan Hewlett and Nathan Denny. All will feature strongly on the weekend.
Racing kick starts this Saturday from 9am at Goulburn Valley JMCC Shepparton.
