The five rider strong junior team of Dante Hyam, Cody Chittick, Riley Dukes, Caleb Grothues and Cody Dyce raced to an impressive Trophy of Nations win with their combined race results, defeating both Russia and the Netherlands.

Motul MX Nationals Series Promoter Kevin Williams today congratulated the Australian team, as well as Team Manager Glenn Macdonald on their recent achievements.

“A huge congratulations goes out to the five outstanding riders and of course their team manager Glenn Macdonald who represented our country at the World Junior Motocross Championships in Russia last week,” Williams shared.

“Australia has produced, and continues to produce world class junior motocross athletes, and it’s fantastic to see another bunch of riders once again achieving great things at the World Junior Championships.

“This year, the MX Nationals changed the Junior support classes to be more aligned with the categories that the FIM offer at a world level, so we are very proud that these new classes have been well received, and that we can continue to offer a solid foundation for junior riders in Australia.

“After the results that each individual showcased in Russia, we are very excited to welcome these riders to the Motul MX Nationals in the future, and again would like to congratulate all on their representation of Australia on the World stage.”
