Press Release
Camden Mc Lellan #407
EMX 85 Championship, 21-22 July 2018


This past weekend was by far the ‘biggest’ race of my young career. Lining up on a GP track, on a GP
weekend was absolutely amazing and an experience I will never forget.
The weekend didn’t start as well as I would have liked with rear brake issues ending my free practice
session after only completing 3 laps, but I knew that we would have it sorted in time to race.
Timed practice went really well and I was able to post 10
th fastest time, but just 1.7 sec off first and I
knew I still had a bit to give and could compete in the races.
Moto 1: My start was pretty bad putting me around 13
th, by the time we went through after the first
lap I had worked my way up to 8
th. Lap after lap I pushed, made passes and could see the gap to the
leading group shrink. In lap 7 I setup a pass on the leading pair and managed to pass both in a single
corner. With the lead I put my head down and put in some hard laps to build a gap and take the race
win.
Moto 2: My start was slightly better and I found myself in 8
th place. Once again I managed to pick off
riders in the opening laps until I caught the second place rider in lap 3. We had a good battle but
eventually made my way through and tried to put in a push to catch the leader. With the gap not
shrinking fast enough and a few mistakes creeping in, I decided to settle into second and secure the
overall and title.
Going into this race I knew I had the pace to compete provided I hit all my marks, executed the plan
my coach and I had laid out and stayed on the bike, but the reality of winning this event is going to
take a while to sink in.

photo shoots, press conferences with my MXGP idols. This weekend will be something I will be able
