Baylor put his head down and pushed building almost a 20 second lead as he crossed the finish line to a waving checkered flag.
Rockstar Energy Factory Husqvarna Racing’s Thad Duvall earned second overall on the day. After missing the majority of 2020 due to injury, Duvall was eager to get back to racing at the front of the pack.

Hamish Harwood dominates NZ MX Round 2
25-year-old Hamish Harwood has taken a step closer to claiming the New Zealand Motocross MX1 title in 2021, dominating Round 2 at Rotorua to extend his overall lead, with two rounds remaining of the four round championship.
Harwood swept the three MX1 races of the weekend, for a perfect 75-points, with a consistent Cody Cooper second overall on 60-points, having taken second in every race. Wyatt Chase completed the top three for Round 2, with a fourth, third and fifth result for 54-points.
The overall standings now see Harwood in the lead on 122-points, 16 in front of Cody Cooper (106), while Wyatt Chase is third on 95-points.
“As far as points goes, it couldn’t have gone much better for me at Rotorua this weekend. I did what I needed to do. In each race, I simply put myself in a good position and then just monitored where the other riders were. In the second race I was under a bit of pressure from Cooper. I couldn’t tell where on the track I was faster or where he was the faster rider, but I didn’t take the option to change my lines and risk making a mistake. I had a rough couple of laps early on in the third race. The track was unpredictable. I knew I just needed to focus. Then I put a charge on and got the win. The next round at Pukekohe will be different because it’s a hard clay surface. It’s so different from what we had at Rotorua. Everyone is the same speed at Pukekohe because it’s a lot like road-racing… such a hard-pack track. But I do like that track.”
Altherm JCR Yamaha’s MX1 rider Kayne Lamont had a mid-week crash before the Rotorua round, which left him a little banged up, while in race two, following a crash, Lamont thought the engine had seized on his YZ450. When he walked it back to the pits, Coppins found a rock had jammed the rear brakes on.
The resulting DNF and third in the final outing dropped Lamont down to sixth for the weekend and dented his championship hopes.
“For this four-week break between rounds I’ll recover and rethink my training program to come back to the final two rounds in the best position to deliver the results I know I can!”
In MX2 Maximus Purvis added another perfect round to his tally, claiming 75-points, with Josiah Natzke and Hayden Smith battling for second and third, only to end the weekend tied on 58-points. Natzke took a second, third and fifth, while Smith took two thirds and a fourth.
Purvis leads the MX2 standings on 125-points, while Natzke is second on 98. Smith completes the top three on 89-points, a single point ahead of James Scott.
“It definitely feels good knowing I’ve got the points lead going into the last two rounds. I’ve been working hard and I’m just going to keep it going for Pukekohe and Taupo.”
Jack Treloar topped the U19s who raced alongside the MX2 class, with two second positions and a first in the final race for 69-points in his class, with Luke van der Lee second overall for the weeked on 62-points and Nick Westgate five-points in arrears in third.
The standings now see Treloar in the lead on 99-points, a single point ahead of van der Lee, while Westgate is a more distant third on 80-points.
Madoc Dixon almost went undefeated in the MX125 class, but had to settle for second in race one, before wins in races two and three. He claimed 72-points, with Codie Bourke second on 67, with a first, second and third place finish respectively. Hayden Smith completed the top three on 62-points running third in the opening two races, before finishing second in the final race of the weekend.
Dixon now leads the overall standings by a narrow 3-point margin from Bourke and Smith, 110 to 107, with the latter duo tied.
“I felt awesome all day on the bike and the track was brutal and gnarly – just how I like it. I had a mishap in race one with a fall but picked the bike up and dusted myself off to finish second. It feels mean and I’m going to keep putting the hard yards in. My goals are to just keep improving myself, which [Yamaha ambassador] Ben Townley and Josh Coppins are helping me with a lot.”

2021 North Brisbane Speedway Masters
Saturday was a new era in Speedway in South East Queensland with the running of the inaugural North Brisbane Speedway Masters. The event was a 24 heat competition followed by repechage style finals. Each final was race with a subsequent three-minute break for the winner of the previous final to check his bike and get back to the start line for the next heat.
Racing was incredible with riders like Zane Keleher winning multiple heats to climb back up the riders list, unfortunately as is the case, exhaustion finally took its toll.
The ultimate final was between Ryan Douglas, Zaine Kennedy, Jason Crump and Nick Morris. Sadly, in the final event Nick Morris jumped the start and was ultimately excluded from the final.
This was a new format and event for the venue and the sign of things to come for Speedway in South East Queensland and the wider Australian Speedway world.

I plan to contest the entire series and chase down the championship on my own dime and time. I want to thank all of the supporters who stepped up to keep me on the racetrack this year. Racing for a Factory for two seasons was a dream come true, but I still have goals to chase and will keep working hard to make it happen.”

Yamaha bLU cRU expands AORC line-up in 2021
Alongside the main ShopYamaha Off Road Racing Team, ran by AJ Roberts, Yamaha will expand its bLU cRU support team for the 2021 season. Michael Driscoll (E2) and Blake Hollis (EJ) will now be joined by Tasmanian up and comer, Kyron Bacon, who will contest the (E1) division, under the banner of bLU cRU Yamaha Off Road Racing.
The bLU cRU team will have the same look and feel as the main team and carry the same sponsors, with Yamalube, GYTR, Thor and Michelin adding additional support to make it a fully self-contained and professional unit to house three of the young-guns of Australian Off Road.
All riders showed serious promise in 2020 despite the Covid shortened season and will be looking to again take further steps up the ladder and establish themselves as major players in the 2021 championship. Driscoll finished fourth in the premier E2 division in just his first year on the 450cc machine. Hollis just missed winning the EJ (Under 19) championship by the barest of margins but is determined to make amends in 2021 while Bacon charged to third in the competitive E1 class and continues to improve with each and every outing.
“The bLU cRU Yamaha Off Road Racing Team has been a great initiative for Yamaha and boosts our off road presence significantly. We have three talented and dedicated riders in a team that fits in with Yamaha’s global step-up program and who are knocking on the door of a major team ride in the years to come. We will assist the team in everything from on course knowledge and mentoring to bike and technical set up to ensure they get they success they deserve. The team has been going for a couple of seasons now and 2021 is looking positive as we have great riders and team support in place to propel them to their best season yet. Having Jess and her team is a bonus to Yamaha. She has proven herself to be a very successful rider both in Australia and overseas and does a great job of running her own team. It gives Yamaha great representation across a range of classes and bikes and the results are always good.”
Also running on Yamaha machinery will be the Yamaha MX Store Ballard’s Off Road Team comprising of multi-time Women’s champ Jess Gardiner, Jeremy Carpentier and Danielle McDonald.

Webb & Musquin top 450s at Orlando 2
For the full report see:
AMA SX Round 8 was a brutal encounter | Video Highlights | Report | Results | Points
It was a successful night of racing for the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team, who topped the 450SX class at Round 8 of the 2021 AMA Supercross Championship with powerful 1-2 performances by teammates Cooper Webb and Marvin Musquin. For Webb, Saturday’s triumph was in the form of explosive back-to-back victories in Orlando, giving him a substantial boost in the championship chase. Musquin, who has battled up and down this season, took one step closer to the center of the podium with a season-best finish of second.
Webb came into the first Orlando round 16-points down in the 450SX Championship but two big wins in the sunshine state have propelled the 2019 champ to within striking distance of the title as he now sits only six points back. Webb, the second-place qualifier, put himself into third off the start of 450SX Heat 1 but he clipped a tuff block on the second lap and went down. Dropping back to sixth early on, Webb was able to battle his way back to finish fourth in the heat.
In the Main Event, Webb powered his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to another third-place start and he quickly jumped into second on lap two. About halfway through, Webb turned up the pressure on race leader Adam Cianciarulo and he made his move into the lead on lap 11. With quite a bit of action taking place behind him, Webb maintained his focus ahead to nail down win number three of the season.
For Musquin, the end result was worth the fight as he earned his third podium finish of the season in the Main Event. Qualifying seventh, he powered his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION into second off the start of 450SX Heat 2 and he quickly moved into the lead on the first lap. He led the first eight laps of the heat until another rider came into contact with him on the last lap. Despite going down just before the finish, Musquin was able to remount and salvage a second-place transfer into the Main Event.
In the main, Musquin put himself into a great position off the start as he settled into fourth on the opening lap. He battled inside a group of front-runners early on before setting himself up for a sole push to the front. Applying increasing pressure on Cianciarulo in second, Musquin set himself up to capitalize on any mistakes and it wasn’t long before the French rider went on to join his teammate in the lead battle. Musquin continued to charge into the final laps, finishing only three seconds behind his teammate Webb for second overall.
Cooper Webb – P1
“This one is huge, back-to-back wins is amazing! It was a great race battling with AC [Cianciarulo] and great points for tonight. Marvin was riding great. I knew he was coming there at the end and I know how strong he is because we ride and train together every day. I felt like start to finish I was in my comfort zone just clicking laps away and it felt really good. KTM going one and two is incredible, this is an awesome feeling.”
Marvin Musquin – P2
“It feels really good to be running up front. The whoops started to be very tough so I was trying to be careful but at the same time I wanted to gain time on Cooper. I felt like I was a little bit quicker at one point but I didn’t want the track to bite me and go down. At least I had a great feeling out there. I want to thank the team for their hard work, I felt better today.”
Justin Barcia – P3
“It was a tough day for sure, I had a crash in practice and kind of destroyed myself. I had to regroup and I felt like I got a little bit better. We made a lot of changes on the bike for the Main Event and I got off to a great start. I picked my speed up at the end of the race and I got into a flow, which was cool. For how the morning went, to be up on the podium was a solid race. Obviously, I want a lot more out of myself but it will be nice to have a week off, regroup and get the body right before heading to Daytona, which I’m excited for.”

Hunter Lawrence fifth as 250SX West kicks off in Orlando
Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing’s Justin Cooper won the Monster Energy AMA Supercross 250SX West season opener for the second year running. Although not the traditional Anaheim I, Saturday’s victory at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, was a great start to his title campaign on a night of challenging conditions.
Cooper got off to a flying start, topping both qualifying sessions to take the fastest qualifier honors. He didn’t get off the gate as he wanted to in his heat and had to work his way from sixth to second. The New Yorker remedied that for the race that counted, getting a good start before the red flag and then grabbed the holeshot after the restart. Cooper built a comfortable gap to cross the line nearly five seconds ahead of the competition for his second career victory in the class. It was a stellar first round for the New Yorker who is still not 100% due to a training injury to his foot.
After watching his brother and 250SX East contender Jett Lawrence race the year’s first seven events, 250SX West competitor Hunter Lawrence commenced his 2021 season in Orlando. The Australian showed good speed throughout the day, posting the fifth-best qualifying time and placing a solid third in his heat race. After he took a third-place start in the main event, a lap-one red flag caused a restart. Lawrence started 10th the second time but worked his way through the pack to fifth place at the finish.
Justin Cooper – P1
“It feels awesome to get the win. That’s definitely the way you want to start the series. I had a foot injury coming in, so I was a little bit nervous about that, not having enough time on the bike, but it all started out well. I was fastest in all of the practice sessions. I just didn’t have my starts down. We didn’t really practice too many of those at home, so that was a struggle until the Main Event. Luckily, we pulled it off twice, so I’d say they came around at the right time. It was good to get out of this place safe. There’s always a lot of hype around the season opener. You don’t really want to throw away the championship at the first round. I got myself in a good position where I could ride my own race and was able to take it easy to the finish line. It was a pretty perfect night for me. I’m excited to keep building on tonight and getting stronger since I didn’t have much time to prep for this round. I want to be on the podium every weekend and do the best I can. I’m glad to have a weekend off before Daytona. We can definitely work on some things to be a little bit stronger heading into the second round.”
Hunter Lawrence – P5
“My Supercross season debut was pretty good; I’m pretty happy with it. We checked off a lot of the goals we had set during the preseason, with the limited time we had coming back from my shoulder recovery. That held me back a little bit to be honest. The strength was a big issue, but cardio and fitness have been great and I’m feeling really good; I need to keep building strength. We just finished the sixth week on the bike, so I can’t complain. My starts were good until a restart in the main event. I put in some good, hard laps and was able to charge all the way back up to fifth from a pretty bad start. I’m content with the night. I got a solid one on the board and I’m looking forward to gaining more strength in my shoulder and coming back swinging at Daytona in two weeks. Massive shout-out to the team and all the fans supporting.”
