After six days of incredibly competitive racing at the 2019 Australian Junior Motocross Championship in Gillman, South Australia, Queensland’s Brad West was crowned the king of the Junior Lites 13-U15 class.
Brad rode his Kawasaki KX250 consistently fast and continued to get even quicker as the week of racing unfolded with his best performance of the weekend coming in the last moto. A dominant 14 second victory ahead of hard chargers Deegan Mancinelli and Jackson Camilleri was the perfect end to the meet for the team and the final win took Brad’s tally to three outright moto victories for the event.
Jackson Camilleri and Ryan Alexsanderson rounded out the overall podium for the event.
Brad was excited to make the long trip from Dingo, Queensland a successful one.
“It was an amazing last moto to wrap up the title here at Gillman, really stoked to get the win. I couldn’t have done it without all my sponsors, my brother and sister, my dad and my mum and everyone that helped me and supported me to get down here,” smiled an obviously excited West.
Younger brother Jason West was aboard his KX 85 for the 2019 Australian Junior Motocross Championship campaign. Despite Jason struggling a little with the starts, he showed speed throughout and ended the event in eighth place with a series of storming rides.
Next stop for the team is the Australian Supercross Championship again at Gillman, South Australia on Saturday 19th October 2019.
