Champion Teen Eyes MX Crown
Hamish Dobbyn, a 15-year-old motocross rider from Warkworth, has won the 250cc four-stroke class at the Yamaha MX National Development Series in Australia. Next on his agenda is the World Junior Motocross Championships in Sevlievo, Bulgaria, starting August 12. “I’ve only just turned 15, so I’m one of the youngest in the race,” he says. “I’ll be up against guys who are knocking on the door for [Grand Prix] starts. I know it’s going to be tough but I’m probably going to have to come up against these guys sometime anyway.” The World Junior event is restricted to riders between 15 and 18 years of age, and attracts the best up-and-comers the sport has to offer.
