Kiama may have another Robbie Maddison in the making.
Just two years after getting a minibike for Christmas, Kiama’s 10 year old Jack Nunn is off to compete in the Australian Junior Motocross Titles.
“This is my first Australian titles and I’m looking forward to the challenge,” he says.
Last year he qualified to compete in the State titles, during his first year of racing.
“I was in the top ten until my bike stopped in the last race,” says Jack.
“It was very wet and muddy, with lots of bikes breaking down.”
He’s hoping for better conditions in South Australia at the end of September.
His lead up has been good, as he is currently first place in the 65cc class and second in the 85cc class in the Nowra championship, as well as third place in the Wollongong 65cc championship.
Jack’s dedication to his sport at such an early age sees him doing bike and personal training throughout the week, with rest days scheduled in. He’s already recovered from fracturing both elbows.
“I want to be a professional motorbike rider when I’m older,” says Jack.
“I want to race in the Australian titles and be good enough to go to America and race one day.”
