Welcome Back Chandler Burns

Welcome Back Chandler Burns

 

We are super excited to welcome back Chandler! Still pretty fresh off his first Supercross season where he placed a fantastic 13th, we can’t wait to join him on his Motocross journey!

So, firstly, for the uninitiated amongst us… What is Motocross? Well it’s a type of off-road motorcycle racing held in an enclosed circuit.

It can take place on gravel, mud, grass… just about anything! It’s one of the most exciting and energetic sports around.

Chandler’s personal goal for this season is to place in the top 15 of the MX National Championship, and we have no doubt in our minds that he can do this.

Let the racing begin!

Unfortunately, his first moto did not go to plan. However, in the second moto Chandler managed to push through the pack to get to 24th place, placing 30th overall.

Not quite the results our man was after, but it was only round one.

Personally, we think he did pretty great with this being his first time going out and racing in the MX2 class!

Next up for Chandler was the Vic titles!

Day 1 in MXD got off to a slow start in race 1, however Chandler managed a brilliant 4th place finish. Race 2 was off to a good start and Chandler ran up the front with Cody Dyce and Morgan Fogarty for the first couple of laps, finishing with an awesome 5th place. In race 3, unfortunately Chandler went deep into the first corner, tagging the back wheel of a rider, so had to come back up through the pack. Still managing to get to a great 6th.

Day 2 was also a good day in MX2, in race 1 Chandler came 10th. Race 2 he got a good start and came in 7th, finishing in a good battle with Ryan Kenny. Race 3 got off to another good start and saw Chandler finishing in 6th place.

Chandler made some solid progress this weekend and is feeling comfortable heading into Appin for round 2 of the mx nationals this weekend!

We’re looking forward to joining him over the next few months and can’t wait to see how he progresses.
