Pony Express series wraps up

November 28, 2009

Kallum Mccouat and Jake Innis Brown have taken out first place in C grade in the Northern Inland Pony Express series. Kallum and Jake headed into Round 7 in first place with the competitors in second place hot on their tail hoping to take the lead.

Kallum and Jake placed fourth for the day at Upper Horton giving them enough points to hold the lead and take the series win. Fantastic job considering they only competed in six of the seven rounds. Congratulations Kallum and your trusty KTM.

Jesse and Blake had a very succesful day at the last round of the Northern Inland Motocross series.  Blake got the holeshot in all three motos and a win in the first race, but a bit tougher competion out on the track with two local Kyogle boys pulling out all stops on their home track, Blake placed third for the day after a big stack in the last race. Blake still held the series win placing first overall in the 250cc class for the series.

Jesse had a fantastic day at Kyogle placing first in 85cc and also first in the 125cc class.  Jesse placed second overall in the 85cc class for the series and second overall for the series in the 125cc class.  Jesse headed into the last round in fourth place on the 125 so he knew he had give it everything if he was going to make the podium on the 125, winning two out of three motos secured his second placing.

Both boys enjoyed the rebirth of the Inland series which saw riders from across NSW and Queensland competing over five rounds.  Congratulations to both of you.

Jesse would like to thank Westside Motorcycles Tamworth and Blake would to thank Vince Strang Motorcycles Inverell for their sponsorship and support throughout the year.

On Sunday Jesse was off to Narrabri for the last round of club championships, placing first for the day on the 85 and second on the 125 after a great battle with Tamworth’s Geordie Kettle. Geordie won the first moto with Jesse right on his back wheel.

Jesse convincinly won the second moto, so they headed into the last moto on equal points which made for very intense racing. Jesse sat right behind Geordie for four laps and two corners from the checkered flag. Jesse made the pass on the inside and it looked like he had him.  Then Geordie clipped Jesse’s wheel making Jess come down with the bike landing upside down.

After a shake of the head he got back on to finish second. Jesse placed first on the 85 for the year and second on the 125. He was also the second highest junior point score. Well done Jesse.

The end is near for the Moto-cross season but will begin early next year for both Jesse and Blake as this will be their last year as Junior riders. They are planning on racing all major events and titles so that they will have NSW and Australian rankings. Here’s hoping for some fantastic results in these events.
