Blake Fox is taking on the world again.
The Dubbo Dirt Bike Club junior motocross rider has been selected to represent Australia at 2019 World Junior Motocross Championships, which will be held in Russia, in July.
It marks the second year in succession the hugely exciting 15-year-old rider has ridden at the world championships and the second time he will contest the 13-17 years junior 125cc class.
Last year Fox finished an impressive ninth when taking on much older riders so hopes are high heading to Moscow.
"I'm honoured to be selected in the Aussie team for the world championships again this year," Fox said.
"I had a blast in 2018 and gained a lot of experience so I'm looking forward to pushing for a podium finish in Moscow on behalf of the team."
The Australian team consists of just six riders so the selection is a massive honour for Fox.
Making the achievement all the more special is one of the other five riders heading to Russia is Cambell Williams of Cargo, outside Orange.
With more than 5,000 registered junior motocross riders in Australia, and tens of thousands more around the world, selection in the team is a mighty achievement.
Williams also competes at Dubbo Dirt Bike Club regularly and the pair's selection is a huge reflection of the work and development done at a local level.
"Blake's a fine young man who's worked so hard so it's great to see him selected in the Aussie team for the world championships again this year," Dubbo Dirt Bike Club president Ben Woldhuis said.
"It's great to see Cambell Williams selected in the team as well.
"We're really proud of their efforts and wish both boys all the best for the world championships."
Williams will be racing in the 12-14 years junior 85cc class and is also competing at his second world junior championship. He finished in 23rd position at the 2018 championships, and is currently sitting in third position in the 85cc cup at the 2019 2 Stroke Amateur Nationals Series.
Fox and Williams will be joined on the Australian team by South Australian Alex Larwood, Ryder Kingsford from Goulburn, West Australian Kayden Minear and Sydneysider Ky Woods.
The World Junior Motocross Championships brings together more than 100 of the best junior motocross racers from more than 20 nations around the world.
With a number of Australian and NSW junior motocross and supercross titles to his name, rising star Fox is no stranger to the motocross limelight.
Racing as part of the KTM Australia Junior Motocross Team, Fox clinched the first place title in the 13-16 years 125cc Juniors class, and second place in the 13-16 years Rising Star Rookies class, at the MX Nationals in 2018.
After two rounds of the 2019 2 Stroke Amateur Nationals series in Victoria and Queensland, Fox has steered his KTM bike into equal first position in the 125cc Junior Cup class, with one round remaining.
Fox was part of an Australian squad which collected the Team of Nations trophy for best performing country at last year's world championships and Australian team manager Mark Willingham is optimistic the new-look team can deliver again in 2019.
"I'm looking forward to this year's trip to Russia. We have a fantastic group of riders this year that brings a variety of experienced and first-timers to the table," Willingham said.
"This collection of riders are all products from our successful 2018 event in Horsham, so they understand what it takes to win but also how to work together as a team who represents their nation."
The world championships in Moscow start on July 14.
