VICTORIAN rising motocross star Cody Dyce shared the spoils in the 250cc A Grade class at the 2014 Victorian Junior Motocross Championships at Warrnambool over the weekend of March 22-23.

Cody, from Maffra, finished equal first with Tasmanian Wade Kirkland at the opening round of the state’s premier motocross competition for juniors. Fellow Victorian Callum Norton finished third.

Cody, 13, claimed a first, second and a third; picking up 97 valuable championship points in the process.

“I’m pretty happy with the result considering I have only had my new bike for a week. I came into the weekend just expecting to have a bit of fun and it turned out to be really awesome,” Cody said.

“Winning the first race was really exciting, that was heaps of fun and it was a big confidence booster,” Cody added.

Cody finished second overall to Wade Kirkland in the Squared Off Motorcycles 125cc A Grade class.

“Wade and I are good mates off the track. We had a number of good battles and some fun out there,” Cody said.

“The track at Warrnambool was awesome. It had good ruts and it stayed in pretty good condition for a lot of the event,” Cody continued.

Cody races for the Victorian Yamaha Junior Development Racing team and last year finished runner-up in the 12-16-year-old 85cc A Grade class.

Cody would really like to thank everyone involved with Yamaha Junior Racing, Yamaha Lube, Fox, Oakley, Pirelli, GYTR, RK Chains, Zeta, TAG, Matrix, Collective, Steve from SPMX, and his manager Cameron Taylor.

He hopes to win the 250cc A Grade class this year. “It’s a four-round championship and we’ve got three more rounds to go. Hopefully, I can stay in the top three and we’ll see what pans out,” Cody added.

Round 2 of the 2014 Victorian Junior Motocross Championship takes place at Swan Hill on May 5-6
