Dylan Long wins two class at penultimate round of the Victorian Motocross Championships

09-08-10

Dylan Long continues his dominant form in the Victorian Junior Motocross Championships, taking six races wins to secure two class wins at the penultimate round of the series at Blue Rock on 7 & 8 August 2010.

Track preparation was excellent, hilly with technical downhill section, lots of grip and fun to ride.

Dylan Long leads both the 13-u16 years 125-150cc and 250F classes in the 2010 series, with one round of racing remaining and has won 17 of 18 races contested in the series to date and looking strong for victory at the final round in several weeks time.

“I had a head cold coming into this event and was really blocked up’ said Long ‘ I was going to sit out practice to conserve some energy but decided to head out and check out the track because it was important I was on my game when the gates dropped.

“I was really happy to win all of my races at Blue Rock and it definitely helped my points in the Championship. I have one more round of racing to go which will be at Wonthaggi in a few weeks and I am determined to bring home two class wins for a second year in a row.”

“Dylan is progressing extremely well this season and is in a solid position heading into the fourth and final round of the series. Dylan not only cemented his points standing for the Championship but was also able to use the event, given the nature of the circuit, to work on skills which will play a part in his junior nationals campaign at Lakes at the end of September.

The final round of the Championship will be held at Wonthaggi 28 & 29 August. The Wonthaggi circuit should be a great equalizer for the riders as there are not many events held at the venue. In the past it has been an excellent circuit which can make for great racing so we are hoping for an exciting finale.”
