“I’m 26 and started riding dirt bikes at age three. It soon took over my life. I ride a YZ250 2-stroke, a YZ450F and race in the Pro Opens/MX1 class. I’m a carpenter by trade, spending my week days working hard and play Oztag for a bit of fun. 2018 was a good year for me: I won the Opens and came 2nd in Lites classes at the Nowra pointscore, I finished 3rd in the Opens class and 2nd in the Lites class in the Interclub Challenge, I was 18th overeall in MX1 at the Nationals, then to finish off the year I also won my 250 class and came 2nd in the 500 class at the Mt Kembla 2-Stroke Cup, with 5th in the main event. In 2019 I’ll be racing the Opens class once again but will also ride the Lites class at different events. A big thank you to all the team at City Coast Motorcycles for their ongoing support.”

“Hi my name’s Luke, I’m 29 years old and ride a YZ450F. I started riding at the age of four and whilst I have always had a bike I only started racing motocross in 2015. I love how physically and mentally tough the sport is but most of all love having fun at the track with mates. In 2018 I finished 2nd overall in the Clubman Open Class of the Wollongong Motorcycle Club Championship and am hoping to improve in 2019. I’m stoked to have the support of City Coast Motorcycles and looking forward to a fun and enjoyable year racing at different local clubs.”

“I started out riding dirtbikes on a Yamaha PW50 in 1980 and haven’t stopped. I’ve been involved with FMX in Australia from freelance writing articles for a few different magazines  to commentating FMX demos  and competitions. I’m a bit of a clown that needs to grow up, but never will. I am what I am and I respect those that respect others. Dirtbikes have made me meet so many good people and have taken us on travels all over the world. I’m lucky to work around bikes all day long and it’s something that I’m so stoked my old man bought me that PW50 way back… #2BANGERS4LIFE.”

“I’m 18 years of age and started riding motorbikes at age three, when my parents bought me your typical first bike, a pee wee 50. I’ve bled blue ever since and currently ride a Yamaha YZ250 2 stroke which I race in the MXD class at MX nationals as well as a YZ450F in Pro open. I’m currently a full time 3rd year apprentice carpenter which I enjoy and try to make time to train whenever I can. 2018 was an up and down year with some good results such as 2nd overall in Pro open for the East Coast MX series, some solid results at the MX Nationals against a stacked field and 3rd place in the Mt Kembla 2-Stroke Cup feature race. I recently won the overall in A-grade Open at Coffs Harbour Stadium Cross. My goals for 2019 are to be fit, healthy, get up front, have a real go and just to never give up and try my best.”

I started off on a peewee with training wheels! My past highlights have been winning the 2004 State Titles against the boys, being the Queensland State Champion for three consecutive years running and winning the 2009 Australian Nationals. I also took out the Womens’ title in the Amcross series where I also placed 3rd in the boys’ C Grade class! I have won the Womens’ division in the East Coast MX series for three years. My main focus for this year will be the East Coast MX Series, State Titles and the Women’s Nationals… and to have fun!”

I’m 17 years old. I only became involved in motocross less than four years ago but it quickly became my passion and I spend nearly all my free time riding.  I started racing two years ago at aged 15. I finished in 2nd place in the Junior Lites at Kembla in 2017 and 2nd place in the Senior Lites Clubman at Nowra last year. This year I’ll be racing my new 2019 Yamaha YZ250F (which I just purchased from City Coast Motorcycles) in local club rounds at Kembla, Nowra and Appin and AMcross. My goals for 2019 are to continue improving my skills and technique, progress my fitness, try my best and to work my way towards the front of the pack with consistent results. I finished school last year and have just started my first year as an apprentice carpenter which I’m really enjoying.  In my spare time, I also love wakeboarding and surfing.Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of the City Coast Motorcycles Race Team – looking forward to a successful and fun year.”

“2015 was a good year for me, a few up and down moments but ending with some great results. I placed 1st in the East Coast series and taking out the home race at Mount Kembla was a great finish to the series. I also placed 3rd at Round 2 of the State Titles behind Matt Moss and Lawson Bopping which was a great achievement. It was unlucky I was out for Round 1 with a thumb injury. In 2016 I won the first ever 2-stroke Cup, which was held at Mt Kembla. Thank you everyone for the support.”

“My name’s Jake and I race over 35A in the Wollongong Motorcycle Club points. I’ve been riding since the age of five. Originally from Queensland, I did all of my racing as a junior and senior in central Queensland. In 2012 I moved to Wollongong for my job as an Electrician and in 2013 won the over 35A points in the Mount Kembla MX series. I had a bad accident at the end of 2013 which made me miss a year of riding. I returned in 2015 and have since won the 35A club championship four years in a row. I will once again be on a YZ450 racing at Mount Kembla with help from City Coast Motorcycles.  Come and say hello if you see me around the pits.”

“I’m 23 years young and dirtbikes are my happy place. Whether I’m racing, coaching, riding FMX or free-riding I’m always smiling and having fun! When I’m not riding I’m working 5/6 days a week operating heavy machinery in construction, 2018 was a pretty down year for me being hurt and having surgery that put me out majority of the season but was lucky enough to ride some FMX at the Mt Kembla 2 Stroke Cup later in the year to get me back on the bike. For 2019 I’m hoping to stay healthy, in one piece and really focusing on my coaching as well as racing some local rounds of MX, Transmoto events and practicing speedway.  if you see me at the track come say g’day. Big thanks to the Team at City Coast Motorcycles for the ongoing support.”

“I have been riding since my fourth birthday, when I got a PW50. When I turned six I started competing at Wollongong Motorcycle Club on my TT-R50 which I got for my birthday. I train with my dad at home or at the Mt Kembla track. In 2018 I was very lucky to receive a brand new YZ65 for my seventh birthday, and in 2019 I will be stepping up to the 65cc 7- 9 years class at WMCC. My idols are Chad Reed and Robbie Maddison, and I have been able to meet both of these awesome riders who have inspired me to ride faster and better. My goal is to be Number One in the Supercross. Hold it flat! Braaappp!”
