Visiting NSW motocross rider Tyler Darby, 17, added a Bronte Holland Memorial 125 Cup to his collection of national successes while racing at Horsham’s MX Amateurs meet.
The Krankt ATM team member clinched the title while making the most of a rare opportunity to race under international conditions at Horsham’s Dooen course.
He won from fellow national rider Michael Murphy from Melbourne and Horsham’s Corey Watts, who picked up his second third-placing in the event.
Darby also came third in an MX 125 international format race, designed to prepare leading riders for world junior titles in Horsham later this year.
Horsham Motorcycle Club spokesman Kenny Watts said weekend racing went well for riders, spectators and organisers.
“It was hot and so was the racing. As well as top amateurs we had riders representing all states except the Northern Territory,” he said.
Reigning Australian champion Regan Duffy from WA, who won his national junior title in Horsham last year, won the special MX 125 class from Blake Fox, NSW, and Darby in a field of about 20.
In the other two exemption classes, Ryder Kingsford from NSW won MX 85 for riders 12 to 14 and Seth Burchell, NSW, won an MX 65 class for riders 10 to 12.
The Horsham club will now prepare for the opening round of senior motocross titles on April 21 and 22 and then round four of western region championships in June. It will then start a countdown for world junior titles in August.
