Bike maker team signs Biloela rider
BILOELA'S Harley Quinlan is riding high after being signed on as a team lead rider for the Queensland Yamaha Junior Development team next season.
Quinlan, 14, will be part of a team which will contest a 26event calendar next year.
The majority of events will be contested in Queensland, kicking off with a host of stadium motocross events throughout summer.
The team will also compete in the eight-round Sunshine State Series, three-round Queensland Motocross Championships, fiveround SEQ Series and the Australian Junior Motocross Titles to be held in Canberra.
"We have assembled what I believe are the best three junior riders in the country at the moment, all of which are achieving major success at a national level already,'' Yamaha's representative and organiser Jon Hafey said.
The season starts next month and goes full tilt until October.
"It's hard to believe that in this day and age a rider with such a full resume and enormous talent can go almost unnoticed, but that is the case with Biloela's Harley Quinlan,'' Mr Hafey said.
"Harley's future can be anywhere in motorcycling, he can ride anything anywhere and fast too.
"But for now motocross is where he is kicking goals and with a couple of second-place trophies from the recent Australian junior motocross titles behind the factory guys, he is one to watch in the coming year.
