The double header at Wonthaggi proved to be a tough and technical event, with a huge amount of rainfall over the weekend, making for grueling track conditions.

With four races each over the two days, both riders were determined to get some championship points behind them. Cody Dyce, would walk away from round 3 with a 1415 finish giving him 12th overall, Round 4 Sunday Dyce had a DNF in moto one due to bike failure, finished 10th in moto two giving him a 20th overall for the day and moving him up the championship leader board to 12th.

“It is always disappointing having a DNF, especially in a championship this big, with that being said I walked away from the day happy I felt like I gained a lot of my confidence back in moto 2 and am ready to carry that into Murray Bridge this weekend” said Dyce

Deakin Hellier had a tough Round 3 making a few mistakes early in both motos and seeing him have to work his way though the field, Hellier managed a 19th in moto one and 23rd in moto two, Round 4 Sunday saw Hellier make up valuable points in the championship moving him into 18th overall.

 

“The conditions were really tough, I kept making silly mistakes and crashing, I was proud of the way I was coming through the field and not getting stuck racing at other riders pace, I’m taking a lot of positives out of this weekend and am feeling confident going into Murray Bridge this weekend” explained Hellier
