KTM AJMXC Interstate Challenge Ready to Rumble!
September 13, 2017

Motorcycling Australia (MA) is pleased to announce that the Interstate Challenge for the KTM Australian Junior Motocross Championship (AJMXC) is ready to rumble again! The Interstate Challenge will pit Australia’s best up and coming Junior talent against each other, when the KTM AJMXC returns to the Horsham Motorcycle Club (September 30 - October 6). Several of Australia’s State Controlling Bodies (SCB) have selected their teams and had their say on the battle ahead.

The SCB’s will be heading to the Horsham track in Victoria to contest the AJMXC. These championships cover competition classes from 50cc Auto up to Junior Lites. The Interstate Challenge has made for a traditional healthy rivalry amongst the states.

Motorcycling Australia's CEO Peter Doyle shared; "We are very excited to reinvigorate the Interstate Challenge, pitting State's against each other at the 2017 KTM AJMXC! The Interstate Challenge will be one of the most exciting aspects of the event and we can't wait to see which state comes out on top."

Motorcycling New South Wales 
The CEO of MNSW, Dave Cooke is supremely confident that his NSW team will dominate the Nationals; “Just look at our team line up! There’s some sublime talent there, but I guess we’re used to that in NSW. Everyone knows NSW produces the best motorcyclists in pretty much every discipline there is. Chad Reed, Dean Ferris, Casey Stoner, Jess Gardiner, Kristie McKinnon, the list is endless. It’s national and world champs as far as the eye can see here in NSW. I even offered the other State CEO’s a bit of a side bet, winner gets the deeds to all the losers office buildings, but none of them would be in it. I think they’re all worried they’ll lose.”
