Troy Dorron – One of Australia’s all-time great 125cc/MX2 supercross champions

Troy Dorron, from Geelong in Victoria, is one of Australia’s greatest ever 125cc / MX2 motocross and supercross racers on home soil, having also ridden internationally.

Throughout his professional racing career, which spanned three decades in the 1980s – 2000s era, Dorron won nine major national titles; which included five Australian supercross championships, three Supercross Masters trophies and two motocross titles.

He also represented Australia in 1999 on the Motocross des Nations team in Brazil and also competed overseas in the United States.

A former junior motocross champion in his native Victoria, Dorron started racing in 1980 on a Honda MR 50. He stepped up into senior ranks in 1988, kicking off his pro career aboard a Yamaha with the backing of Victorian dealership K&J Thomas.

Dorron would also go on to race with Suzuki, Kawasaki, Kawasaki and Honda teams, racing both the 125cc and 250cc classes. But it was the smaller and lighter 125 / MX2 machines that he mastered, particularly in Supercross, winning all his National titles in this class.

After winning his first Australian motocross championship in 1999 aboard a Honda, Dorron went on to win a record five consecutive National 125cc Supercross Championships between 1999 and 2003.

In 1999 and 2001, he also won the prestigious Australian Supercross Masters series in the 125cc class, which was held over ten rounds at major stadiums and sporting grounds across the country. The National SX Championships were contested over fewer rounds and during this era at selected rounds of the Supercross Masters Series.
