A talented trio of riders will fly the GASGAS Junior Racing Team flag through the 2023 season at a national and state level, with the up-and-coming roster of Ky Woods, Bodie Court and team newcomer Seth Thomas officially announced aboard MC machinery.
Continuing with the team this year, 15-year-old Woods will take to the stage at the highest level of junior national competition and contest the Australian Junior Motocross Championship (AJMX), as well as MX3 during the ProMX season.
The highly-rated Woods is a former 65cc runner-up in the Junior Motocross World Championship and will be equipped with his MC 125, as well as an MC 250F this season. He impressed on his way to fourth in the 125cc 13-under 15 class at the AJMX event last year.
As for Court, he too is returning in red for another year as part of the GASGAS Junior Racing Team and makes the step up to the 12-under 14 years category with his MC 85. The 12-year-old highlighted his potential once again last year at the AJMX, securing bronze in the 85cc 9-under 12 years division and is looking to build upon that moving forward.
Joining the GASGAS Junior Racing Team, new signing Seth Thomas is set to ‘Get On The Gas’ at 11 years of age, the current AJMX 65cc 10-under 12 years champion and 85cc 9-under 12 years number two to be equipped with an MC 85 as he chases glory against the best young domestic talent.
Conor Fraser (KTM Group Australia Network Development Manager):“The GASGAS Junior Racing Team is entering 2023 with high expectations after a string of solid performances during the 2022 season. With Byron Dennis graduating to the senior ranks for 2023, existing team riders Bodie Court and Ky Woods will be joined by new recruit Seth Thomas. After narrowly missing the 125cc 2t (13-u15) podium at the 2022 AJMX in Rockhampton, Ky Woods has showed great speed early in 2023, transitioning to the MC 250F. Stepping up to the 85cc big wheel this season, Bodie Court is looking to repeat his podium success of last year in what will be his third season with the team. Newest addition, Seth Thomas will make his debut after a breakout performance at last year’s AJMX where he secured a 65cc (10-u12) Australian championship along with a second place finish in the 85cc (9-u12) class. Complementing our exciting line-up of riders for 2023, we are proud to announce continued relationships with our long-term partners Motorex, Troy Lee Designs, Dunlop, Rival Ink, ODI and Funnel Web Filters.”
