MOTOCROSS STAR: Biloela’s Jayden Pender, with Active Motorcycles Chris Breitkreutz, took out a series of titles in Motocross competitions this year.

BILOELA'S 10-year-old Jayden Pender has had an impressive motocross year after taking out a series of titles.

Jayden took out the Gladstone Dirtriders Club Championships second place in mini lites 9-11 years, first place 65cc 7-9 years, second overall junior mini lites 85cc 9-11, highest points scorer, first overall 65cc junior 7-9 years, Central Queensland Motocross Championships 2012 65cc 7-9 years, Gladstone Motorcycle Club Inc Club Champion 60cc junior and Gladstone District Dirtrider 2012 highest points for the year.

Jayden's dad Cameron said it had been a busy year.

"We have been to all the club days at Gladstone, all the club days at Yeppoon, all the CQs. We did the Aussies and the Sun states which is south-east Queensland," Cameron said.

"We travel all around the state for the competitions.

"The CQs, for example, were Gladstone, Blackwater, Dysart, Emerald, Moranbah and Rockhampton."

Cameron admitted he wasn't sure about Jayden getting into racing.

"He got a little 50 off Chris (from Active Motorcycles) when he was five and I took him out to the track and someone said you need to get him into racing but I wasn't real keen," he said.

"I took him to a heap of races in Rocky and Gladstone to watch and I thought it would be enough to scare him off but he was adamant that was what he wanted to do."

Cameron said the love of the sport came from friendships as well as the racing.
