MXSTORE 125 CUP: BACK FOR 2022

2 months ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: MXstore

Holding it wedged on a new or old 125cc two-stroke with a bunch of other half-arsed MX racers from all walks of life doing the same thing … who would have thought that’d take off?

Well, in hindsight, we all should have! For a greater majority of riders, racing motocross for fun is far more appealing than serious racing for sheep stations. And as a result, the 125 Cup took off like crazy last year in its homeland of southeast Queensland, aided and abetted by the crew from online parts and accessories giant, MXstore.

“In 2021, MXstore grabbed some pre-mix, some 125s and few has-beens who talked trash to one another before they hit the track, and the inaugural MXstore 125 Cup was born,” explains MXstore’s Mike Sleeter. “The brainchild of this class was XGames gold medalist and MXstore athlete, Corey Creed. This unique Senior 125cc class was held at our local track, Gold Coast Motocross Club, and it was an absolute hit.

“For 2022, our crew at MXstore has raised the bar by expanding the MXstore 125 Cup into NSW for the King of MX in Port Macquarie for a one-off round. On top of that, we will be introducing the MXstore 125cc Triple Crown, which will give Senior pro and amateur 125 riders a chance to go head-to-head for rounds at three different tracks, where we will award a red plate after each round. At the end of the Triple Crown, the top three riders overall in the Senior 125 pro class will receive cash prizemoney, and the 125 Senior amateur class will receive thousands in prizes,” Sleeter went on to explain.
