-- 2009 World Junior Motocross Championships - Australia wins World
Junior Motocross Nations Trophy
Australia has captured the Nations Trophy at the 2009 FIM Junior Motocross World Championship in Taupo, New Zealand, after 85cc rider Jay Wilson became the country’s first ever Motocross World Champion, while 125cc rider Tye Simmonds finished second in his class to ensure the title for Australia.
The Nations Trophy is awarded after taking into account the best result for one individual rider in each of the two classes, and Australia took out the overall title ahead of Italy and New Zealand.
Simmonds won Race Two but American Eli Tomac was crowned the 125cc Junior Motocross World Champion by finishing second in the race after he had earlier captured the Race One victory.
Meanwhile, an emotional Wilson was completely lost for words after finishing the 85cc Race Two in third place, ensuring the title after his Race One victory earlier in the day.
Fellow Australian Dylan Long also featured on the podium, finishing third in the 85cc class.
