Ararat’s Kobi Bolt sits just 52 points off top spot in the western region motocross title with three rounds remaining.

The 10-year-old has 238 points from the opening three rounds of the 65 c classification with his favourite three tracks still to go to finish off the season.

Bolt trains at the Next Level track in Maryborough and has been riding motorbikes since he was four years old.

Kobi’s dad Jarrod said he is very proud of how well Kobi has performed so far this season.

“I am proud of the way Kobi has shown determination throughout each race,” he said.

“Before the season, Kobi wanted to finish top five and he has done that already.”

The junior talent practices under the watchful eye of Lachy Steen and Bolt said he has noticed a big difference in Kobi’s attitude since starting.

“The last 12 months, when he is confident around his riding, it comes out in his school and his everyday life which is great to see.

“He also has the same determination to win as every other rider but he will stop and check on someone if they are hurt and will shake hands with everyone after each race.”

The next day of the competition is round four races in Horsham on June 17.
