Jaden Anderson is Scottish champion at age of nine

Jaden Anderson of Alford, who is just nine years old, recently won the 65cc ScotMX Scottish Championship in Tain.

In the week, Jaden Anderson added the Aberdeen and District Motocross Club Championship, a title that he also won last year, as he came third within the Scottish Championship.

Jaden Anderson started motocross racing on a 50cc auto when he was just seven years old. He leveled up to the 65cc class at the beginning of this year and became the primary rider to win the championship in his rookie year.

He went on to compete at Assen within the Netherlands last weekend after being invited by Yamaha to require part within the Motocross of countries Super Finale as a part of the Yamaha bLU cRU team.

Jaden finished 25th – he was sitting no. 22, however, he then had a crash on the last lap.

“He had an incredible weekend with Yamaha bLU cRU,” said his mum Karen. “It was a tremendous experience for him as well as the other riders.”

The event started on Saturday morning because the bLU cRU programme was split into 65cc, 85cc, and 125cc classes, with about100 amongst the most promising young Yamaha riders in Europe racing on an equivalent track as the professional MXGP riders.

Starting with a humid opening free rehearsal within the morning, the YZ65 young riders were the primary competitors to ride the newly built sand track.

The YZ bLU cRU relished the chance to check their machinery and skills on the planet stage for the primary time, having made the SuperFinale supported their national championship results.

The top three finishers and two carefully chosen wildcards in each category will now be picked in order to attend the bLU cRU Masterclass in Spain from 18th to 20th of November this year.
