Byron dirt bike racer retains his class lead
McCormack finished third on Saturday (round three) and second on Sunday at the event, held near Orange.
The 16-year-old finished only about 10-seconds behind reigning junior Australian off-road champion and fellow Yamaha racer, Ben Burrell, after Sunday’s five laps.
“It was pretty tough. I lost my rear brakes four out of the six laps on Saturday - I bent my rear disc and the track was really tight so I think I kept boiling them, so that made it hard to keep the pace,” McCormack said.
“The track was challenging, it was shaley and dusty and pretty technical.
“But I’m happy with how I went, my YZ250F was running great and I’m excited to still be leading my class. “I’ll be training hard and getting as much riding in as possible in the next little while, so hopefully I’ll be able to get a good result in the last two rounds and clinch my second title for the year.”
His ultimate goal is to make the sport he loves his profession and race in the United States.
