2015 Honda Woodville GP Wrap: Cody Cooper

NZ’s current MX1 Champion Cody Cooper dominated racing at the 2015 Honda Woodville Grand Prix winning all 3 races and the Overall for MX1.

In excellent form, Copper rode with confidence, precision and consistency nailing 3 hole-shots in testing track conditions at the iconic venue of Manawatu Orion Motorcycle club’s annual International event.

With a line-up of International riders from Australia, Japan, USA and the UK increasing depth of talent across all classes, NZ’s # 1 proved he is on target to defend his 2014 NZ MX Champion Title in 2 weeks’ time.

Most certainly, the warm-up event pre-NZ MX Nationals tested NZ and International riders fitness, technical and mental ability to race in hot weather conditions on a track long over-due for rain.

For Cody: ‘Everything worked well. My starts were awesome which made my day a lot easier. This year I haven’t worried about anyone else I am racing, I can get on with what I have to do and have a lot more fun with it’.

‘Mentally I feel better and I’m riding more consistent through-out the day’.

Definitely the camo gear upped the fashion stakes on the line, though more importantly Cooper was in excellent headspace to get the results he wanted.

Cody: ‘haha yea I loved the camo gear for sure. When you have an awesome Team behind you it makes the day a lot easier to stay in zone’.

With similar conditions predicted for the Opening Round at New Plymouth February 8th, Cooper looks set to hunt down victory as he did at the 2015 Honda Woodville Grand Prix.

Coops: ‘I’m off to Aussie this week for a week so I’ll just stick to what I’ve been doing and improve a little more’.
