The anticipation is building and the start of the 2014 Smarter than smoking WAMX Junior Championships are almost upon us again.
Welcome back to all those returning as we say good luck to last years juniors, now senior riders and give a big welcome to the new faces joining us for the first time. Most of us are now old hands at it and have the routine down, which is lucky because we all need to be well packed for the first round as we make our way out to the hard pack track of Kalgoorlie.Having just held a successful Open, Kalgoorlie MCC is looking well on it’s way to hosting a fantastic opening round for the juniors and the seniors second round over the Easter long weekend. Having been a couple of years since the juniors headed out that far, it should make a great change from the city tracks, long and fast with lots of jumps and corners to test the skills of all the riders. Home track rider Connor Teirney is my bet, but who knows who will step up to challenge him. It will be, for sure, a great days racing and it is likely your bike will keep a little Kalgoorlie track with them through the whole season as that red dirt never leaves you!!

The canteen will be open early for all your breaky/caffeine needs and the bar a little later on. Camping at the track is always a fun, carefree atmosphere and the town is plenty big enough for us rowdy mx crowd.
Pits will open early and they fill fast so be patient and considerate when getting a pitsite.

A huge ‘Thank you’ needs to go out to our sponsors for backing us again this year, Healthway and Smarter than Smoking as well as MWA, PerthMx.com, True Spirit, Sports Power Kalgoorlie for their support. To all the Officials and Volunteers who have put in the hard yards behind the scenes and to the clubs for putting up their hand to host a round.
