Bailey focuses on bouncing back after tough round

AFTER a tough round of racing last weekend, Bailey Perrin has his eyes focused on bouncing back at Bingera Weir.
Tomorrow will be the second round of the Rum City Motocross series, with Perrin the leader of the mini lites after round one.
Last weekend he finished eighth in the first round of the Sunny State series in Hervey Bay and was hoping for a better result in his class.
“The track was pretty rough. It got pretty gnarly at the end of the day,” he said.
“It was a pretty difficult weekend at Hervey Bay. Was good training for this weekend.”
Heading into tomorrow’s racing, Perrin will also resume his battle with Lance Cameron in the junior lites.
Currently he is second behind Cameron and admits he will have his work cut out to beat him.
“(I go) Handlebars (to) handlebars with Lance. He’s a very fast rider and it’s pretty good to be up there racing with him,” Perrin said.
“It’s good to watch him ride and I get some points (about) how he rides.
“It’s definitely a challenge to be up there with him.”
Perrin said he needed to get his starts right to maintain his position at the top of the standings.
“I mostly like the start. It’s always fun trying to get to the corner first,” he said.
“Just racing against other people is fun and it is a challenge to just get better and better.”
Publicity officer at the Rum City Motocross Club Jonathon Blackley said numbers were up from the last round and they hoped to host more races this weekend.
There will also be canteen facilities available, with spectators welcome as well.
