Support Aussie Champs in Italy

1 week ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: Youthstream, Motorcycling Australia

The FIM World Junior Motocross Championship may have had a last-minute change of venue (it was recently relocated from Russia to the legendary Trentino track in Italy), but the goal remains the same for the young Aussies: to defend the titles they won when the FIM WJMX was staged in Oz last year.
And to help raise funds for the Australian team’s trip to Italy, Motorcycling Australia (MA) is raffling off a KTM 65SX and Yamaha YZ85BW.
Here’s MA’s PR about the initiative, with details about how to buy tickets and put yourself in the running to win the bikes…

How far would you travel to represent your country? 1,000 kilometres? Maybe even 10,000 kilometres? Come July, Team Australia will traverse thousands of kilometres from Australia to Italy for the 2019 FIM World Junior Motocross Championship (WJMX), where they will defend two World Championship titles and a World Cup.

Tackling such an enormous trip, fuelled by the pride of wearing the green and gold, requires much determination and dedication by our Juniors. To ensure that the 2019 Team Australia receive as much support as possible, Motorcycling Australia (MA) are raffling off the chance to win one of two Motocross (MX) motorcycles, a 2019 KTM 65 or Yamaha YZ85 Big Wheel. All proceeds donated through the purchase of raffle tickets will go towards supporting the Australian WJMX Team in their endeavours overseas.

With a strictly limited release of 200 tickets, each ticket purchased gives you a one in a hundred chance of scoring yourself a 2019 KTM 65 or Yamaha 85! Whether you’re a lover of that Yamaha blue or KTM orange, this raffle gives you the opportunity to support our Juniors on their exciting journey to Italy! Tickets are available for the single price of just $100 AUD. Increase your odds in scoring your own MX bike by purchasing more than one ticket!

It’s as easy as answering six Team Australia WJMX questions and you’ll be supporting the selected 2019 team, which includes:

  • Kayden Minear
  • Ky Woods
  • Cambell Williams
  • Ryder Kingsford
  • Alex Larwood
  • Blake Fox

The KTM 65 and Yamaha 85 are valued at over $5,000 AUD, respectively, and by donating $100 AUD you can rest assured that you have supported the growth of Junior MX talent within Australia.

With homegrown talent seen in the likes of Kirk Gibbs, Chad Reed, Dean Ferris, Hayden Mellross and Todd Waters, the 2019 WJMX Australian Team need your help in making their dreams a reality.

You have up until 30th June to show your support, unless sold out prior!
