MXstore Privateer Spotlight with Tyler McCoy



In this edition of the MXstore Privateer Spotlight we catch up with MXD athlete from the Northern Territory Tyler McCoy.

Read below to learn more about Tyler as he takes on the Motul MX Nationals in 2016.


Tell us a bit about who you are and what your plans are for the coming season?

I’m Tyler McCoy from Catherine Northern Territory, 17 years old and racing the MXD class.


What’s your weekly routine involve?

I’m on the bike four days a week, in the gym twice and on the road bike 3 days a week so it’s usually pretty full on. I don’t have to work during the week thanks to my parents covering most of my expenses so I just ride and train full time.


How has your preperation been?

My preparation for this season has been good, I went over to the states for about 2 months and did heaps of riding and testing with MX University and Dj Burns which has been really good. So we are coming into round 1 healthy and ready to go which is what we wanted!


What are your goals for the year and what do you hope to get out of racing the nationals?

My goals for 2016 are to get a championship in the MXD class and then head onto supercross and race the under 19s and hopefully get another one. So it will be a pretty full on year but I definitely know I’ve got it in me. 


Is there anyone you would like to thank?

I’d like to thank the Collective Family, Oates MX, Alpinestars, Oakley, Bell Helmets, Pro Circuit, Mum & dad and everyone else who has helped me out!
