Racing Dirt to Road Final Episode 4 NZ Motocross 016-017 season

Racing Dirt to Road wraps up the Series with Episode 4 giving a heads up on NZ’s Motocross season 016-017 which kicked off at Taupo Motorcycle club’s Extravaganza event at Labour weekend.

Stretching over the next 6 months, NZ MX offers events catering for varying levels of racing on track surfaces from sand to loamy dirt, to hard-pack to natural grassy terrain. With such variance in race opportunities along with NZ’s seasonal advantage of warm climate- NZ riders and Internationals have the perfect conditions to prepare for racing overseas come March 2017.

Yet, as film Series Presenter Josh Coppins states, racing NZ MX Championships along with build-up events is not easy. Competition is tough, NZ riders know their race-craft and do not give anything away to International riders looking for an easy win. In fact, only 2 overseas riders have won NZ MX Championship Titles.

Within this context are former Pro Motocross Champions taking up the role as Team Manager/Owner, coach and Mentor for up-coming young riders wanting to achieve on the world stage. NZ’s Josh Coppins (Vice World MX Champions 2 x), Ben Townley (AMA SX East Coast Lites Champion and MX2 Champion) and Belgium’s 10 x World Motocross Champion Stefan Everts.

The experience, knowledge and skills that former World Motocross Champion racers bring to the table, teaching, imparting their advice on how to improve rider’s performance has to be celebrated and acknowledged this is where the sport’s future lies- to build Motocross Champions for years to come.
