“I’m 28 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. A big thank you to all the team at City Coast Motorcycles for their ongoing support.”

“Hi my name’s Luke, I’m 31 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 further. 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 21 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 as well as a YZ450F. I’m a qualified carpenter running my own business for over 2 years now, which I enjoy and try to make time to train whenever I can. 2021 was not much of a year of racing due to COVID lockdowns, but I managed to do a couple of MX Nationals rounds competing in MX1 for the first time, the East Coast MX Series which i managed multiple top 5 overalls and also various Transmoto events. My highlight for 2021 would’ve been 3rd overall in MX2 at the King of MX state titles. This year my plans for racing are the East Coast MX series, Transmoto events, Hattah Desert Race, possibly MX Nationals and Finke Desert Race. My goals for 2022 are to stay fit, strong, just have fun and enjoy riding my motorbike.”

“Hi, I’m 19 years old and only became involved in motocross six years ago, but it quickly became my passion and I spend nearly all my free time riding. I started racing 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 in 2018. I placed 2nd in the 2019 Clubman Lights Interclub Series. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 last year, there wasn’t many opportunities to race so I focused on training and improving my riding skills. This year I’ll be racing my new 2021 Yamaha YZ250F (which I just purchased from City Coast Motorcycles) in local club rounds at Kembla, Nowra, Appin, Amcross and East Coast MX Series. My goals for are to continue improving my skills and technique, try my best and to work my way towards the front of the pack with consistent results. 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.”

“In the beginning I started riding and racing at four years old (a PW50). My brother and I were lucky enough to have a hard working dad who put everything into our racing. We raced club championships, interclub, states and nationals as juniors and travelled the whole east coast of Australia. My goal for 2022 coming off a big injury is doing a few club rounds and I’m hoping the VMX championship at THE heaven / VMX nationals if my back holds up. I’m going to just start my three-year-old on his PW50 and enjoy that experience. This is only possible with a great team and crew behind me, City Coast Motorcycles and my family.”

“Hi, I’m 23 years of age racing in the Pro Open Class for 2021 on my YZ450F. I’ve been riding since I was four, but only became involved in racing motocross from age 15 and I haven’t stopped ever since. I’ve just finished my Civil Engineering degree which has allowed me to spend more time to focus on riding. When I’m not riding my dirt bike, I like wakeboarding, snowboarding and fishing. This year I’ll be racing the East Coast MX and Dirt Action Amcross series, with Club rounds at Nowra, Wollongong and Appin in between. My goal is to be fit, healthy and consistent for my first year in the Pro Open class with plenty of fast guys to learn from. I’m stoked to be a part of the City Coast Motorcycles team this year and thankful for the support to keep me going racing.”

“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 25 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 2021 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!”
