Fiery young rider snatches awards

MOTOCROSS is a tough sport, but Ty Pearce showed no mercy.

The young motocross competitor smashed through the weekend’s Rockhampton and District Motocross Club Awards with two

trophies.

Pearce picked up the B & M Equipment Services Trophy for 10/13 years and Rockhampton Bike Wreckers Trophy for Mini Lites 9/12 years ahead of Storm Messer in second and Tanisha Messer in third.

The awards had a stampede of young competitors including Storm Messer, who claimed the Southside Caravan Park Trophy 7/10 years ahead of Cody White and Locklan Crouch in third.

Rosemarie Hutton of the motocross club said Ty Pearce glides through competitions quite easily.

“Ty pops up everywhere, he can’t help himself and is very unaffected by all his accomplishments.”

“He does it because he loves it and he is lucky to have parents that support him. He is one capable little rider.”

Blair Pearce was another young gun who placed first in the Rosenberg Motorcycles Trophy Junior Lites.

The awards were held at the Indoor Sports Arena last weekend and mark the end of the season for the young competitors.
