Starting riding in the back blocks of central New South Wales, the talented Jay Wilson began riding like many other country kids hooning up and down the dusty paddocks on the New England Highway.
Then when an employment opportunity for the family presented itself on the Gold Coast, the Wilson family moved to the glitter strip and into the motorcycle hub that is South East Queensland. With an active local club and some racing enthusiasm, Jay Wilson continued his love of dirt bikes and started racing at the local tracks in his area, Reedy Creek and Stanmore.
With some small support rides up until his 14th birthday, it was then Jay’s talent was starting to get recognised and industry supported started coming his way. In 2009, he stunned everyone when he claimed the 2009 FIM world 85cc junior champion in New Zealand. Instantly, he had arrived.
He maintained consistent results through to 2013, then things started to pick up again. He finished second in the MXD championship chase with Yamaha, then went on to win the SXD championship. He moved to Serco Yamaha and the MX2 division and finished a very credible fourth before his huge break out year in 2015 when he won the MX2 championship, this time for the JCR Yamaha team.
Jay is now back with Yamaha and supported by the same people that took him to success in 2013 and 2015. But it is an older more mature Wilson this time around as he now as a wife and baby daughter to keep him on his toes when not on board his YZ250F.
