Featured Riders - Jake Collins

Jake Collins

Jake participated in a few auto races in 2010 as an introduction into Motocross, and loved it from the off, so we brought a Cobra Auto ready for the 2011 season, this was to be Jakes first full year of racing where he finished 7th overall in the Autos in EKKSC Championship.

We then changed clubs and groups. Going into MSMXC Juniors on a KTM 65. In his first year in the Juniors he came a respectable 4th overall. Now in 2013 it looks like he will be in a fierce battle with Leon Ongly all year long as they have swapped wins in the first four rounds.
