Cody ready for Russia

TINAMBA’s Cody Dyce will compete against the best junior motocross riders in the world this weekend, when he takes part in the FIM Junior Motocross World Championships in Russia.

Cody, 15, will compete against the world in exceptional riding form, having recently won the state 250cc junior title and finished third in the 125cc junior title at the final round of the Victorian Junior Motocross Championships in July.

He also dominated the Rising Stars Rookies Cup at the MX Nationals in Shepparton on July 31, claiming the overall championship lead with one round remaining.

Cody is thrilled to be heading over to Orlyonok, Russia, to represent Australia on the world stage, aiming for a top five finish in the 125cc class.

“I’m pretty excited. I’m keen to get over there and see what I’ve got against these faster kids. I’ve never been overseas before,” he said.

“Hopefully, I will go well, I’ll just try my best and see how I go.

“It feels pretty good to be able to represent your country and to see what you’ve got against the fastest kids in the world.

“I’ve been doing a bit of training on and off the bike recently such as mountain bike riding and swimming.

“I’ve been practicing heaps of starts out at Krusic’s Ride Park, who have been a really big help this year.”

Upon Cody’s return from Russia, he’ll be competing in the final round of the Rookies Cup at the MX Nationals in Coolum, Queensland on August 28, before heading to Renmark, South Australia, to compete in the Australian Junior Motocross Championships from September 28.
