Two Wells motocross rider, Clay Burnett, is heading to the Australian Junior National Motocross Titles this month.
The young bike enthusiast, who has been riding competitively for the past few years, recently competed in the South Australian Motocross State Title series in the 85cc 2 stroke/ 150 4 stroke class in the 9 to under 12 years division and took out the title.
Clay rides a KTM 85cc two-stroke and has enjoyed his state title round this year, staying consistent at every round.
Five rounds, with each round consisting of three races, was held at venues across the state including Port Lincoln, Murray Bridge, Gillman, Keith and Renmark. Competitors also travelled from Victoria and NSW to compete.
Clay won the South Australian title after winning the overall high point in his division at each round, taking outright wins in 11 of the 15 races and placing within the top three in the other four races.
Clay is heading off to Horsham to race at the 2017 Australian Junior National Motocross Titles held from October 1-8.
He has also been chosen as part of the South Australian MX team to represent the state along with other talented young riders.
Clay is fortunate to have a dedicated team of family, friends and sponsors who support him at every race meet, travelling all over South Australia and interstate to cheer him on.
Although the kids are very competitive on the track, they all enjoy getting together after racing to hang out .
“I enjoyed having my family and friends supporting me throughout the year,” Clay said.
“Especially my Grandpa, who went to almost every race through the year, only missing a couple of events due to illness.
“A couple of things I love about this sport is I get to hang out with family and friends, stay at different places, see different people and try different things”.
Best of luck Clay.
