Ten Honda Riders Nominated For ADB Readers’ Choice Awards: Vote Online Now!

Voting has begun for the annual Australasian Dirt Bike Magazine (ADB) Awards, dirt bike racing’s night of nights, and fans can vote online now for the Readers’ Choice Awards where ten Honda riders are nominated.

Twelve-time Australian Motocross Champion Craig Anderson, riding extremely well for Woodstock Honda Thor Racing this season, has been nominated for the Motocross/Supercross category.

AJ Roberts and Peter Boyle, of the GHR Honda team, have also been nominated in the Off-Road category.

Boyle was extremely impressive in his rookie year on board the CRF250X, winning his class in both the Australian 4-Day Enduro and the Australian Off-Road Championships this year, while AJ came second in his class in both the Australian Off-Road Championships and the Hattah Desert Enduro.

Boyle has been nominated for the rookie category as well as Josh Cachia who represented Honda Thor Racing in his first season at the senior level – racing in the 2008 Australian U19 Motocross Championship and Australian Pro Lites Supercross Championship.

Ben ‘Grabbo’ Grabham, the 2007 ADB Readers’ Choice Off-Road Rider of the Year, was again a force to be reckoned with on the CRF450X, winning the Australasian Safari, the Condo 750 and the Finke Desert Race back to back. He is up for nomination once again in this category.

Matt Phillips, who recently took out second place for his class in the 2008 Honda Junior Nationals, and Dylan Peterson, who took out third for his class at the same event, are both nominated for the Junior category.
